I subscribe to far too many blog RSS feeds to read everything, every day. I do have them categorized by topic and have a system to quickly shuffle through to find the gems. But with most blogs I’m reading a fraction of what they produce. The ten blogs below, however, I never miss. I read every post, in part because of the consistent quality of their content and the impact it has for me personally and professionally.

Damn, I Wish I’d Thought Of That! by Andy Sernovitz
A regular source of marketing best practices, with a focus on word-of-mouth marketing and customer service. Lots of visuals and examples, and I love that he pulls from a variety of industries and personal experiences. Fast, easy read with regular insights you can put to practice in your business.

Quick Sprout by Neil Patel
The standard for writing great content that informs and ranks via search. Most of Neil’s posts include numerous, tactical action items to improve the performance of your marketing. Mostly about search and online marketing, Neil also delves into sales strategy, copywriting and other elements of effective sales & marketing best practices.

Dumb Little Man by Jay White
A regular source of practical advice to “save you money, increase your productivity, or simply keep you sane.” Jay does a nice job of both creating and curating content that’s fresh and relevant.

Hunting Big Sales by Tom Searcy
I’ve heard Tom speak several times on the topic of enterprise sales, and his insights into sales strategy (particularly small companies going after big business) are spot on. Tom is now a featured writer for several publications and posts links to all of his various writings here.

The Sales Blog by Anthony Iannarino
Anthony publishes every day, Monday through Sunday. And despite that frequency, his content on all things sales are consistently valuable. What I particularly love about Anthony’s work is how he breaks up his content to make it more accessible, and finishes each blog post with a list of questions to challenge the reader to bring the post’s main points home to roost.

Marketing Interactions by Ardath Albee
I have had the pleasure of spending a little time with Ardath at various sales & marketing conferences over the past two years, and continue to enjoy the way she brings the perspective of the customer to everything she does. Her focus (in her business and her blog) is to help organizations better align their content and story-telling with what the customer wants and needs. Great perspectives to guide your own content marketing strategy and execution.

Marketo’s Blogs by Maria Pergolino and others
Marketo is a software vendor, but consistently produces some of the best B2B marketing content around. They now publish at least four separate blogs on sales, marketing, revenue performance and more. They do a fantastic job highlighting writers and perspectives from many different experts. Maria’s content I’ve found to be particularly, consistently good.

Lifehack.org by Leon Ho
I read a lot of productivity material (some call it Productivity Porn), but Lifehack is among the best I’ve found. Well-rounded content that helps me think about my professional and personal life habits differently.

Parent Hacks by Asha Dornfest
As relative new parents of two, my wife and I are constantly on the lookout for ways to entertain, cajole and otherwise proactively manage our two little start-ups. My wife reads a lot more on this topic than I do, but Parent Hacks is my daily go-to. Some of the ideas aren’t yet relevant to our three and one-year-old kids, but it’s fun to read about and store away for later.

Imbibe Unfiltered by Imbibe Magazine
Those who know about my cocktail hobby (obsession?) won’t be surprised by this one. Great way to discover new recipes, books, events and more.

What about you? What blogs are on your can’t-miss list?
