What does your ten Blogs on Marketing (that are not Marketing Blogs) list look like?


  1. Thanks, Mitch. Very kind of you to include me, and thanks for being one of the few folks who recognize that my blog isn’t about marketing. : ) Heck, I get lots of people who think that’s my profession, too. I guess because it’s a tool I use in my deck of things to get things done.
    You know I’m a giant fan, so I’m happy for the recommendation. See you in Toronto, perhaps?

  2. Mitch – thanks for including me on the list. It’s a good list of diverse topics, and I agree completely with the way they intersect, in part, around marketing.
    You could have put me above Chris Brogan, but I won’t complain…*grin*
