Career + Social Media & Career Blogs to Read

Between my day job and this blog, I am knee-deep in the social media world every day. I know that a lot of my readers are bloggers or other public relations and social media professionals so I thought I would share the social media blogs that I like to read in order to stay up-to-date on what’s going on in the industry.

Also, I thought I would add some really great career blogs /emails that will hopefully help you as well!

Staying up-to-date on what’s going on in your industry is actually one of the most important things that you can do for your career other than acting upon the knowledge that you gain. Hopefully, you’ll find a new blog to read that will end up sparking your creative juices!

Social Media Blogs to Read

Buffer Blog

By far my favorite platform their blog and podcast are some of my favorites. They actually test their theories, and if you use their platform (which you should be), they have great tips and tricks as well.  I love their podcasts because they’re short and really informative. They also have experts outside of Buffer who come in and share their expertise. It helps that they practice what they preach!

Here are some of my favorite posts, and also some of my favorite podcast episodes:

Also great for learning things where you can jump in to help at work or do new things with your blog/website!
