The easiest way to take advantage of the insights and updates from all of these blogs is to use an RSS Reader, such as Bloglines, NewsGator or Google Reader. Unfortunately, while I use Google Reader, because it is simple and integrated into my other Google accounts, I have yet to figure out an easy way to add multiple blog feeds at one time; however, if you know of a way, please feel free to share it with us as a comment to this post.

  9. Here's another one for your list: http://www.sharongraham.ca

    Sharon offers excellent career tips for executives and six-figure professionals.

  10. This is an excellent list. Not only for the list itself, but to find legitimate marketers, personal branding specialist, entrepreneurs and social media experts. My twitter account is a'flutter with people telling me how to get 20,000 connections in 30 days.

    One thing I noticed from clicking on many (many) of the links is that a surprising amount of people do not have a way for someone to find them on twitter, facebook, etc…


  11. Thank You for including Careerealism.com and JT & Dale Talk Jobs on the list Chris!

    Will be tweeting it!

  12. Another great list!! We are honored to be included – thanks so much for the recognition.

  23. Wonderful list! Can you include mine as well? It's about Social Media and job searching:

    Who Gives a Twit?

    I have google reader as well, so I'll research the question of getting multiple subscribes included and let you know if I figure anything out.

    Thank you so much!
