I was off exploring regional NSW when then list was published, but if you are looking for a good, solid understanding of social media and digital marketing, then ecairn’s list of the Top 150 Social Media Marketing Blogs will keep you entertained for months! Any one of these blogs will provide you with a wealth of knowledge and practical advice.

I am a particular fan of the metrics that ecairn use to determine rankings (not least because I fare so well), but because my own interests are also served by those that are ranked well by their metrics. Be sure to check out the ecairn blog for the complete list of 150 blogs. The top 50 are below.
