We could dish up the typical boring (professional) and typical marketing blogs for your consumption but we actually want you to read, so we’re not going to do that. If you’re looking for something a little new, something to break up the monotony and actually hold your attention, this is the list for you. Here are our top 5 marketing blogs:

  1. Clients from Hell - We all need to vent every once in a while and this blog does just that. “Clients from Hell” doesn’t necessarily delve into too much detail and generally obtains from complaining about the issues but rather communicates various negative encounters with clients. The blog is made up of anonymous entries from designers worldwide. The entries are short, easy to read and super relatable for anyone who has worked in an agency environment.
  2. Without Bullshit - We always love a good candid blog and as you can see from the title of the blog, this writer doesn't play games. Josh Bernoff is extremely forward yet informative in every posts he makes. This Blog focuses on both marketing and day to day human topics.
  3. What Should We Call Social Media - This is for all you social media nerds out there. The posts are short, often full of memes and GIFs but isn’t that really what social media is all about? The blog is more of a mindless scroll zone but there’s some merit to it.
  4. Adobe Create Magazine - This one is mainly on the list because it’s solid eye candy but as a part of the Adobe canon, it DOES have sustenance. Find articles on graphic design, Illustration, Photography, Branding and more.

Boring marketing blogs are a dime a dozen these days, what with everyone desperately clamoring to find their way to the top of Google searches and all. We hope these few marketing blogs will actually offer something useful to you without making your eyes glaze over.
