We, as one of the rising stars in the online marketing and tech industry, get asked a lot where we learn how to get better in what we do. Some of us are oldskool paper-readers, as you can see in our previous post about the most interesting marketing books, but of course we also read a lot online. We’re lucky to live in a time where the world wide web has expanded itself as a great and mighty source of information and it would be stupid if we didn’t profit from that. One of these quite new media are the online blogs, where you can find the most relevant information about almost every subject, written by the experts in your field. In the past you had to come to meetings and presentations to know what’s trending and of course this is still something that we love to do, but you can also access lots of interesting information online. That’s why we decided to make our own shortlist of the most interesting, delightful and entertaining blogs that you must read if you’re into tech and the online (marketing) world.
