Content marketing is not a static industry; it is always evolving. That’s why at Headline Consultants, we often delve into the words (and worlds) of other content marketing blogs.
One of our resolutions this year is to help you better understand our industry, so we’ve decided to share with you our top five favorite inspirational content marketing blogs as blogs to stalk throughout 2017.

4. Seth’s Blog
Seth Godin is the writer of 18 best sellers and a speaker on everything related to leadership, change, and marketing. His blog provides insight on the power of language and technology, including how to appeal to various types of personalities, in a highly amusing tongue-in-cheek tone.
Entrepreneur, writer, and speaker Jeff Bullas blogs regularly, aiming to educate and inspire others to better themselves and their businesses in the online world. His blog posts cover ideas like using social media apps to boost brand awareness, updates on popular search engine algorithms, and more to keep readers in the know about the ever evolving world of technology.
Reading is essential for the writer’s success. Regularly brushing up on our favorite content marketing blogs and other resources not only keeps us on top of the latest trends, it helps enhance our style. Stephen King says it best in my personal favorite, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft:
“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
