Spending your days and weeks inside the social media marketing world can get pretty exhaustive. Lots of people talk about lots of different things but, often, usually the same thing.
It’s important to pause once in a while and find some new things to read. New voices help break up monotony and often, will give you new ideas. You’ll learn about things that might not be directly related to PR, communications or marketing and you’ll be able to make new connections and solutions. With summer upon us, here are some of my recommended readings that you might enjoy:
- Jack Cheng writes about ideas, making them happen and living a smarter & happier life. Check out his post on permanence.
- 147xxx – ever wonder what the Starbucks barista is thinking when you order?
- The Awl – one of the better new blogs. Edited by Alex Balk & Choire Sicha. From their about section: ”a website that zippily surveyed a wealth of resonant, weird, important, frightening, amusing bits of news and ideas.”
- Arts & Letters Daily – essays on philosophy, aesthetics, literature, language, ideas, criticism, culture, history, music, art, trends, breakthroughs, dispute and gossip. Phew.
- BuzzFeed – we’ve linked to them before but they’re a great place to go turn your brain off for a bit and catch up on what people are takling about on the web.
What are some of your favorite blogs that are outside of the PR world?
