Roundup time, and that means some great marketing and business blogs that you can sink your teeth into. Most of these fantastic authors have been featured here before and for good reason. They’re all smart and insightful and they alternately inspire and educate. I hope you find something here to enjoy.

Yep, I’m a sucker for titles like this. I want to know: Really? How weird can something be? I also want to know how to be more productive because, well, who doesn’t? Devan delivers some fun and weirdness, too, with a couple of things you can actually insert into your day effortlessly… especially #4, which I won’t give away except to say… yes, please! See which one of these helps perk you up most.

Kaarina is a thinker and her posts always inspire me to do the same. I guess you could say that’s just a bit of how I define her! In this post she makes the point that when someone asks us what we do, we automatically answer with our job titles. And yet we are so much more and should avoid defining ourselves so narrowly. I couldn’t put it more eloquently, so I’ll just quote Kaarina here: “Today, see yourself as a human being, not a human doing.”

Everyone wants to make friends and win business. But attracting the right kind of people is not always easy. First it takes knowing who you want to attract… then how… and then you’ve got to keep ’em around. No worries, Jessica shares a great summary of how to do all that. From the content you create to the image you portray, this post will help you get your ducks in a row so you can find, inspire and even entertain your business audience.

In this post Ryan wants to know: are you creating too much content? But wait, there’s a catch. “Too much” has nothing to do with “how often”. Sounds counterintuitive but when you listen to Ryan (and I mean listen, there’s a video that accompanies this post, too) you will understand why even some content can be “too much” if it’s the wrong kind of content.
Dear Amy: The #SMEtiquette Of The Mass Unfollow
Written by Amy Vernon
Real-world relationships can be tricky enough to navigate. Now online relationships add a whole new dimension to our paranoia – who likes me, who doesn’t, am I saying the right thing, am I doing the right thing? Plus the whole mess of who/when/why to friend/fan/follow. That’s why I found Amy’s post interesting – it addresses the etiquette – and angst – of following and unfollowing people online. If you occasionally wonder how to handle your various online connections, you’ll appreciate this one.
I hope your week ends well and that you find some time to relax this weekend!
