    Good stuff, thanks for sharing! I'm guessing that for many of us here on GH this is both a reading list and a "hit list" for guest posts...

    Although I really do like the list. A lot of blogs have really in depth information that does not cater to a beginner.

    I personally have tried to point people to a few of the blogs and say "just read everything there".

    Do you know what normally happens? They read so much that they never start anything.

    If I could condense that list down to only 2 Blogs to follow it would be:

    1. Quick Sprout- Everything known to man on marketing and sales
    2. Backlinko- Everything known to man on SEO and Link Building strategies.

    These two are platforms for marketing and sales than anything else on the web.

    Although blogs are cool the real meat to potatoes is subscribing to the -mail Newletters:-)

    I belong to about 48 different e-mail list (that's a blog post on it's own)

    If someone was to tell me I could only pick 3 Newsletters to read for the rest of my life they would be:

    1. Morgan Brown- He recently retired his newletter, but may have something upcoming in the future.
    2.Hiten Shah- Weekly curatation of the best content on the web condensed to 7 bullet points.
    3.Susan Su/ 500 Startups- One small tip everyday that could hockey stick your Growth.


    This comment is getting ridiculous...

    Should I stop giving value or give one more tip?

    Exactly! That's what I thought.

    I will give one more value bomb for my growth hacker family.

    One word...Podcast

    Reading content is awesome, but we are a mobile society. Most of the time we have to get our education from Automobile University.

    If I were to tell someone to only subscribe to 3 podcast they would be:

    1.Seth Godin's Startup School- It is 15 episodes that you could literally listen to everyday week for the rest of your life, and still hear something new.
    2.Tim Ferriss Podcast- There are other things on this podcast besides marketing. However, the tactics can be applied to all aspects of your business.
    3. Dorm Room Tycoon"- Incredible interviews with some of the most amazing thinkers on the planet.

    Those are the best blogs, newsletters, and podcast on the planet.
    That if time is your most valuable resource (which it should be).

    Are the only ones you should be reading and listening to.

    That is the end of this comment. FINALLY:-)
