Highly recommended.
  2. Viperchill (RSS) Viperchill is one of my favorite inbound marketing blogs online. The posts are quite lengthy, but the manner in which they are written will definitely keep any true marketer intrigued. And while the posts are long, they guys at Viperchill don’t make posts unless they have something of truly epic proportions to say. Every article is pure gold. Pick this one up now.
  3. Shoemoney (RSS) Shoemoney’s style is right up any light reader’s alley. My personal favorite post type from Shoemoney is their movie/TV related posts, such as “What Internet Marketers Can Learn From The Dark Knight Returns”. Pro tip: Send Jeremy at Shoemoney a t shirt for some free publicity.
