Marketers love blogging, so it’s no surprise that there’s a huge number of blogs devoted to the art and science of all things marketing. Unfortunately, marketers with limited time on their hands (remind you of anyone?) are often intimidated by the sheer number of blogs to sort through.

That’s why we’re compiling a list of our favorite marketing blogs — check them out, bookmark them, and let us know what you think! Rather than giving you everything at once, we’ll be laying them out 10 at a time, divided by topic. Up first? Content marketing, of course!
