12 Bloggers You Really Should Read in 2012

12 bloggers for 2012

The great thing about blogging is that you get to meet so many smart people. While a post might start the conversation, the comments take it in a whole new direction altogether, and makes a post better for it.

As well as blog comments offering the opportunity to read the views of these smart people, they also allow us to check out more of their writing, thanks to plugins like CommentLuv.

I’ve discovered some really great bloggers through comments left on this blog, and I’d like to share 12 of them with you today.

Each one of them brings a tremendous voice and point-of-view, as well as something to learn from every time. And you can’t ask for more than that.

So, without further ado and in no particular order, here are 12 bloggers you really should read and subscribe to in 2012.

1. Judy Dunn

One of the original For Bloggers By Bloggers core authors, Judy has long been one of my favourite bloggers from the first post of hers I read. Her Cats Eye Writer blog is one of the best around, period, for writing advice, style, life lessons weaved into blogging and more. If you want to be a better writer, read Judy Dunn.

2. Craig McBreen

Craig came into my radar last year, and he’s been there ever since. A fairly new blogger, Craig writes about social media and business, but from a more human angle. His writing style is very warm and incredibly smooth, and flows from one sentence to the other. If you want a business-type blog without the boring corporate fluff, check Craig McBreen out.

3. Jayme Soulati

Never one to pull punches or walk in territories others would be afraid to, Jayme Soulati writes an excellent PR-led blog over at Soulati-‘TUDE. Although there are many reasons to love her blog, her no-nonsense approach to showing what’s wrong in PR and how to improve it make it an essential read for anyone with an interest in public relations.

4. Robert Dempsey

One of my favourite marketing blogs, because like Jayme above there are no punches pulled, Robert Dempsey’s blog is one of those blogs that has you hooked once you read a post. Knowledgeable; genuine; fearless – if you want a great marketing blog that really tells it like it is, Robert Dempsey is your guy.

5. Stuart Mills

There are many blogs that write about life and how to remain positive when the shit hits the fan. Many come across as false, though, and just out for eyeballs. Stuart’s Unlock The Door blog isn’t one of them. A tremendous blog that shines with humanity and real emotion, this is one of the best blogs out there to show you how to really live life, personally and professionally.

6. Bill Dorman

The self-penned “Invisible Blogger” because no-one used to read his blog (man, how that’s changed!), Bill Dorman is another blogger who effortlessly seems to bridge the gap between business, life, human emotions and storytelling. That’s not an easy trick to pull off – but Bill does it with ease. Read his blog and you’ll see how for yourself.

7. Ken Mueller

Ken Mueller is simply awesome – that’s all you need to know. More? Okay – Ken’s blog is one of the very best at providing solid business and social media views with humour and deprecation. This is a guy that’s not afraid to get the lady clothes on for a video to prove a point – and that’s just one of many reasons why you should read his blog. ‘Nuff said.

8. Samantha Collier

A fellow Canadian, Samantha Collier writes about social media for law firms on her blog. In an industry that has to be extra-careful at what can and can’t be said online, Samantha’s blog is a great educational resource, as well as a helping hand for law practitioners when it comes to the social media space. A great read.

9. Howie Goldfarb

I’m not quite sure whether Howie is an alien or human being, or something in-between. One thing I’m certain of, though, is that he’s one of the most-informed people I know when it comes to talking about advertising and social media, amongst other things. While his blog needs a visual makeover (my eyes, Howie!!!), it’s no slouch when it comes to solid information and overviews. Read it and learn.

10. Brankica Underwood

One of my perennial favourite bloggers, Brankica writes about Internet marketing, SEO, blogging and more over at Live Your Love. Her voice is one of the most vociferous out there when sharing opinion (and that’s a great thing to have), and she also continuously recommends awesome products for anyone looking to create a business online. Required reading.

11. Marya

I found Marya’s blog completely by accident. She suggested a guest post for For Bloggers By Bloggers and I checked out her stuff, and was blown away by the quality of educational content. Much like Judy that started this list, Marya writes excellent blogging and writing tips, and has a great community of commentators over at her Writing Happiness blog.

12. Dan Perez

I always give Dan stick for being a miserable sod – but deep down (okay, on the surface too!) he’s one of the most genuine guys you’ll meet. Dan writes about a lot of topics – social media, people, business, non-profit and more – as well as makes great videos to share them. But despite the multi-topic approach, Dan Perez’s blog is one of the most cohesive and educational/inspiring ones around.

So there you have it – 12 bloggers that you really should add to your reading list in 2012, if you’re not already reading them. Like I say, each one offers something unique to them, and makes blog reading and commenting a delightful lesson.

I hope you check them out – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with any of them. Oh, and if you’re looking for more blogging tips and advice, there’s always our little site over at For Bloggers By Bloggers, too…

Happy New Year, all!

  1. says

    wow, thanks, Danny! What a pleasant surprise. Though I guess I should be worried that I had to put a dress on to get on this list!

    Oh, and keep your eye on that trend….

    Thanks again. Great list!

  2. says

    Great list, Danny! I have gotten to know many of these folks over the last year too thanks to you and Gini (yep, you two were just mentioned in the same sentence AND context).

    I am not as familiar with Judy- I’ll have to get to know her better!

  3. says

    Oh, also, I’m looking forward to seeing how Dan reacts to this. Lists are so plebeian you know :)

    And I wouldn’t be doing my job if I failed to note that this could have been submitted to 12most πŸ˜‰

    • says

      Maybe I put Dan on here just to spite the bugger. πŸ˜‰

      And yes, good point about the number – will have to see what I can do instead.

    • says

      Cheers, Nicky, hope you enjoy them. I was trying to find a widget that would collate all the feeds together – if I find it, I’ll make sure to update the post!

  4. says

    Thanks Danny,
    I read Judy. And, I hope to get some help from Bob this year to get my blog positioned on a larger map with a sprinkling of High Def. I’ll have to give these other folks a read and start following them more often.

    • says


      I feel like you are a dear friend I’ve never met, if that makes sense. We met on biznik.com (what, three years ago?) and have had some great discussions there. We’re looking forward to working with you on your blog improvements.

  5. says

    Well, you have started my new year off with a bang! This is an amazing list and I have a few new blogs to subscribe to myself.

    I just want to say how much you are appreciated, Danny, for supporting all us other bloggers in our journey. So refreshing to see a “big guy” reaching out like this.

    I look forward to writing more at For Bloggers, By Bloggers in the new year. and exploring this list more in depth. Thank you for including me!

      • says

        Bill! Nice to see you here on this list. : )

        I admit, I’ve been a lurker more than a commenter on your fine blog. Look forward to interacting more in 2012. Happy New Year!

    • says

      Hey there miss,

      I concur with Bill – easy to include when the person and content is so great.

      And thanks for the kind words. I’ve been really fortunate to have been supported in my blogging journey – seems the very least I can do is return the “favour”. :)

  6. says

    Wow, that’s like a walk-off home run; I can just pack my bags and go home now. Of course I was very surprised and honored and will say this was very much appreciated.

    Any time I can get on a list with Howie, that has to be a ‘win’, right? We’ve either done something really bad and someone is looking for us; or we actually did something noteworthy and it was such a surprise it had to be mentioned…….:).

    It has been a real pleasure getting to know you and you have certainly helped me along the way. I know many have said it, but your advice of just taking care of what I can control and don’t worry about the things I can’t has helped me keep this sustainable.

    I see 2012 as a year of continued growth and look forward to continuing on this journey with you.

    Happy New Year to you and the family; and I will definitely check out the few I don’t know on this list.

    • says

      Haha, not so sure about the home run angle, mate – you’ve seen some of the reprobates that hang out here. Really wanting them in your house? πŸ˜‰

      Been a pleasure getting to know you too, fella, and looking forward to seeing where you take us this year.

  7. says

    What an honor to be included among all of these amazing bloggers – thanks Danny!

    I’ve added all of the blogs to my Reader and look forward to reading all of them :)

    All the best in 2012! You rock.

  8. says

    Great list Danny! I’m excited to see a few blogs I haven’t “met” before. Incidentally – it’s been a little while since I’ve been here and it looks fabulous. I’ve been following you on Twitter and we’ve both had amazing years, eh? :-)

    • says

      Hey there Angela,

      Glad to be able to introduce you to some folks you may not know, hope you enjoy them as much as I do! And yes, been quite the 12 months – here’s to continued adventures. :)

  9. says

    O!!! M!!! G!!!

    This is like the best thing a person can see on January the 1st! I have no words but THANK YOU!!!

    I hope you have an amazing 2012. Danny and wish all the best to you and your family :)

  10. says

    Hi Danny

    Been MIA for months while I build a new site and remodel my blog with Brankica’s help. What a gal. So glad she getting the recognition she so deserves. Without her help I would not be moving forward in the way I am.

    Some other great bloggers there and a few I don’t know. Great to be back here catching up on all I have missed.

    May 2012 be a good one for you and your family. Thanks for all you have taught me in 2011. Looking forward to what this year will bring.

    Patricia Perth Australia

    • says

      Hey there Patricia,

      So awesome to see you here again, really missed you and sounds like you have quite the relaunch coming up. And what a person to have in your corner to help you with it.

      Looking forward to catching up and seeing where you go with your content this year and beyond – here’s to blogging. :)

      • says

        Sure, the best way is probably to put them all into a shared google reader feed, then add that feed to a widget that displays an RSS feed (there are a number of them, there is one even built in you should see it on the widgets page RSS, Entries from any Atom or RSS). Voila, done! :) You can also do this on a page or post as well, the code is a little different. In that case you use the Embed RSS plugin. I use that one at http://managedsolutions.com/webmailpage/ the “known issues” part of that page is an Embed RSS of Rackspace’s RSS feed for service issues.

        Hope this helps :)


  11. says

    WOW .. what an absolute honour. And totally unexpected too.

    Danny, my email has yet to inform me of this post – I usually get notifications well after the post publish – so you can imagine my surprise when I saw this. Talk about discovering candy in purse, or money in the pocket, or an email froma long lost friend .. this is even better. :)

    Thank you so much for your kindess and generosity you have shown me over the past 6 months or so. Like I said in response to your comment, I cherish the way you first gave me a chance.

    Have a great day! :)

    • says

      Hey there miss,

      I saw that, and thank you for the kind words – aiming to jump back over there later.

      You’re more than welcome, and like I said, it’s been great watching your style develop, and looking forward to what 2012 and beyond holds for you!

  12. says

    Wonderful list Danny!

    Couldn’t agree more to the awesome people you have listed. I have recently checked out Maryas blog, though Brankica, Bill, Craig Robert, and Stuart are known wonders! They sure do offer lots of tips and informative posts for everyone.

    Wishing you and yours a very happy and prosperous new year as well :)

    • says

      Hi Harleena,

      Thank you! Hopefully, since you already enjoy the bloggers you mentioned, the others will fall into the same category too. That’s the goal, anyhoo! πŸ˜‰

  13. says


    This is a fantastic list of bloggers. I recently became acquainted with Brankica’s work and I’m already a huge fan. If you endorse her then I know we have similar taste and I know I’ll enjoy the other individuals on this list that I haven’t read yet.

    Thank you!!

    Ryan H.

    • says

      Hey there Ryan,

      Cheers for that mate – it’s funny how so many readers and commenters know of Bran, always a good sign of someone doing things right. Here’s to you enjoying the rest, too!

  14. says

    Well, this is a pleasant surprise. One of the highlights of 2011 for me was the realization of my enjoyment for writing. That my writing has shown traces of brilliance is just gravy (kidding, of course).
    Fortunately, I’ve been working on my new website design for most of Saturday and today so any new visitors to my site will see more than just an empty homepage.
    Thanks for the recognition, mate. A great way to start the new year…
    PS – not so crazy about being listed 12th but it gives me something to strive for in 2013 πŸ˜‰

    • says

      I noticed the new design – I guess I’m redundant, then? πŸ˜‰

      Of course, you do know the saying, “Saving the best ’til last”, don’t you? So could be that. Or you could just read the intro part that says “In no particular order”… You know the drill, Perez. πŸ˜‰

  15. says

    It’s been great getting to know you this year Danny through your blog and your comments on the other blogs. It’s great to see someone so prolific (as evidenced by your footer) who is continuously stepping it up and not afraid to do something different.

    Ok that’s enough ass kissing for one comment…

    I know/read/have spoken with a few people on your list and will be looking at the rest as I’ve also seen them commenting a number of places.

    Happy new year sir!

    • says

      Hi mate,

      Likewise. I think it was over at Marcus Sheridan’s where I first saw you comment, and the comment intrigued. So I checked you out and eh voila!

      I always feel I must be moving in the right circles when you start to see communities built around many same names in the comments, as that’s always a sign of staying power as well as interest.

      Here’s to that continuing and looking forward to your new goals for this year, mate.

  16. says

    Except a couple of blogs, I am not aware of the others. So, I will click on a few links and read what’s written in there to get a mention here!

  17. says

    Perfect timing, Mr. B.

    I’ve just completed my annual clear-out of redundant feeds in my RSS reader and am looking for new inspiration. I’ll give these a go.

    Happy New Year, everyone!

  18. says

    Hi Danny,

    What a wonderful way to kick-off 2012 with a mention on THE top social-media blog! πŸ˜‰

    Thank you for including me on this list, it means a lot that you’d consider my blog filled with humanity and real emotion, because that’s exactly what I strive for.

    You’ve given me a lot over the months of 2011 Danny, I thank you deeply for the opportunities and wisdom. You’re a true gent :-)

    • says

      Oh my Lord, you’re going to instill the SM Blogging Guru wrath with that opening sentence, mate… πŸ˜‰

      I’m a big believer in the more human stories around business, so your inclusion was easy. Well, that, and consistently great content, of course!

  19. Lorene says

    Wow great list for this 2012. Really didn’t miss anything. I really like Samantha Collier and Howie Goldfarb. Love this one so much..

    • says

      Hey there mate, glad to hear, and hope you enjoy them as much as I do. New gig is awesome, thanks, and lots of news to share in coming months – stay tuned! :)

  20. says

    I love it when bloggers shine light on others DB, especially when they are in a position to help them, just as you are Danny. I’ve read all of the people on this list, and every one is worth mentioning. Also, there is a good mix here, between how-to’s like Bran, great writing like Judy and Marya, inspiration like Stu,or oddities of the universe like Bill D and Howie ;-)…

    Wishing these folks an amazing 2012!


      • says

        Oddity Bill, huh? I have been called worse; just don’t call me late for dinner, ok?

        Congrats Bran, you definitely deserved the kudos.

        I’ll see you around in ’12.

    • says

      Dammit, why didn’t I break this into categories? LOVE “oddities of the Universe” – may have to steal that line, sir.

      It’s one of the things I love about blogging mate – if you see great stuff, it’s easy to share. Here’s to that continuing – cheers, bud!

  21. says

    Hey Danny,

    Hope you had a great Christmas and NY. From this list I only really know Stuart and Bill, two guys that I can completely ‘vouch’ for, and I plan to start connecting with Brankica in the very near future. I will also check out the other guys on the list…I’ve seen many of them around the blogosphere. Thanks for this useful list.


  22. says

    Thanks for this great roundup introducing me to some excellent bloggers. I have made a firm commitment to change my blog this year to focus on more things that should really matter, and less on what the media says matter. These folks are who I aspire to be more like.

    • says

      Hey there mister, long time no see – hope you’re keeping well and life is being good to you?

      Just do what Howie did – single malt Scotch, preferably an 18-year old Glenmorangie… πŸ˜‰

  23. says

    Wonderfully compiled! Some of my favorites here. Thanks for introducing me to new ones!

    Man.. Bill Dorman is here too, I thought he was invisible!

  24. says

    Hi Danny
    I know a few of the names, but most are new to me.

    Might start with Marcus’s interesting category… “oddities of the universe”
    I’m rather intrigued.

  25. says

    Hello Danny,
    Thanks for sharing a good list. And I will subscribe all 12 and yes 13th blog is yours because I read your blog first time. I am a new blogger. So these all blogs will help me to learn something new about blogging and I always love to read new blogs.
    Thank you.

    • says

      Hey there Kashyap,

      Thanks for the kind words. And glad to hear the blogs will help – look forward to chatting more this year and seeing your blog grow .

  26. says

    Someone needs to write a definitive blog post on how to keep up with reading all your favorite blogs. I keep adding to the list and am now drowning in great content! I would write the post myself, if I knew how …

  27. says

    Coming from you this surely is a good advice, and it’s also beautiful to see a successful blogger recommend others. I just can’t imagine the spike in traffic they’re receiving.

    I don’t have the time to follow seriously all those blogs but there are three which I should. And I will.

    Well, sorry for the short comment but I have some other blogs to read now. πŸ˜€

    • says

      Glad to have been able to help you find three new blogs – maybe you can still drop in an odd visit now and then to the others. But three is better than none, so my work is kinda done. πŸ˜‰

  28. says

    Hey Danny,

    A great list, and you opened me up to a few that I have not heard of before. I will be sure to check them out.

    As Marcus said, very cool of you to do!

  29. says

    Thank you so much for the list, Danny. I’m new to both reading and writing blog (mine has only been up for 6 months). I’d discovered 2 off the list on my own. Looking forward to learning from the other 10 this year.

    Thanks again!

    • says

      Hi Tammy,

      Great to have you here, and the great thing about blogging is we’re all continuously learning together. Here’s to your next six months and 1 year anniversary!

  30. says

    ok you punked me. now i have to blog more since I had slowed down and fix my platform. Aliens always get the tough love. But we need that. Traveling so many light years softens us up.

    Really kind of you Danny. I should of known it wasn’t going to include the Top 12 of Ad Age 8) And love the list and the connections made through you!

    • says

      But this is better than the AdAge list because at least I don’t make you wear a day-glo orange badge! But yes – please consider decorators, mate, happy to recommend some WordPress painters. πŸ˜‰

  31. says

    That is a great list and I pleased to see that I was aware of many but it is always good to find new blogs.

    More importantly, you put together a post that included reasons why we should visit some of these bloggers and that is much appreciated.

    • says

      Cheers, mate. Yeah, I wanted to include a brief overview and show why I appreciated them. Also, it makes it easier to decide if it’s going to be your cup of tea or not. Although, in fairness, despite there being different niches, each one kind of dovetails into the next with the non-nonsense approach. Which is nice. :)

  32. says


    Man! What a way to start the year!

    This was a very pleasant surprise, but I had to do a double take. I was wondering if there was another Craig McBreen blogging out there πŸ˜‰ Especially considering the stars on this list.

    I must be doing something right, because I already have most of these fine people in my reader. So I guess I’m reading the right blogs, although I now have to add Judy, Samantha, Marya and Dan.

    I am honored to be included and really do appreciate this gesture. So very cool of you especially to someone like me, who has only been doing this for about four months.

    I know I’ve told you this, but I’m very glad I discovered your blog early on and do consider you a mentor … but now, the big dog gives me a shout out and it makes my day. You’re help and advice along the way has helped this rook immensely. Okay, that’s enough bootlicking πŸ˜‰ Thanks again.

    • says

      Hey there mate,

      You’re more than welcome. As I mentioned to Frank above, I’ve really enjoyed seeing you take off the way you have, and that certainly bodes well for the next 12 months and beyond.

      Here’s to continued growth, and looking forward to seeing you nail your copy like you have been doing. :)

    • says

      I hear you on that. I culled over 60 blogs from my RSS over the holiday period, as they were just churning out the same old stuff. Here’s to new reads!

  33. says

    Here I am! To acknowledge you and your incredible gift! Thank you! I was milking this thing called “holiday” to the last minute and refusing to connect.

    Such a lovely honor, Mr. Brown. You RockHot. ThatIsAll. I thank you with tremendous gratitude.

    Happy New Year to you and your community!

  34. says

    I have to say, there’s one thing in common on all these blogs: they all have a distinct personal voice. Are you sure you’re not being biased toward humans?

    Anyway, thanks for the introduction to Judy, Samantha, Marya, and Dan. And the reminder to keep up with Robert and Stuart better this year.

    • says

      Hi Shakirah,

      Oh, for sure I’m biased. I’m a firm believer that human stories succeed over all else, so any time I can share real people, I’m there. πŸ˜‰

  35. says

    John Gotty & The Smoking Section (SmokingSection.net) should have made the list. There is no other constant stream of journalistic and lifestyle original writing and constant than that site. Gotty does a lot.

  36. says

    Hi Danny,
    I originally found this post while on business2community.
    I have only ever visited one of the listed blogs before. I will check out a few more on your reccomendation.

  37. says

    Excellent list. I wasn’t familiar with any of those names but then again I only discovered For Bloggers By Bloggers a few days ago. Now I have some more to visit to hasten my online learning curve.

    • says

      Hey there Jonathon,

      Cheers, mate (twice too, for the FBBB find!). Hopefully the descriptions help point you toward the blogs that might be best suited for your needs.

      Thanks again!

  38. says

    Hey Danny,

    Great blog! This is my very first visit here. However, I really like what you have going. I also am not really familiar with any of the names on this list except for Craig, Bill, and Brankica; and I’ve only had the opportunity of visiting Brankica’s site. I would definitely agree that she is dynamite!

    From your high praises, I think it’s time to visit the other’s as well as the rest. I read were many have written that we should stick to our niches, but I simply like to pay a visit every now and then to the other niches throughout the blogosphere, as well.

    What’s your thoughts on that “rule”? Do you think it’s more beneficial to stick to what we know?

    I only ask because in my learning the industry, (and I’m only a year into it come next month) I’ve come to believe that I’ve learned just as much venturing out. And also, I’ve met some awesome people in the industry as well in doing so.

    Anywho, I do enjoy what I’ve read thus far, and hope it’s cool to come back.

    Wishing you all the best in 2012… Cheers! :)

    • says

      Hi there Deeone,

      First, thanks for being here, really appreciate it, and there’s always an open door for you. :)

      It’s funny, I was chatting with a friend about your very question on Skype last night, as he has a blog that covers numerous topics.

      While there’s definitely a bonus to concentrating on a niche – really lock in your view and expertise to establish yourself in that niche – I’m not 100% sold on that being the golden rule.

      The friend in question has awesome content across all his topics, and he never gets less than 100 retweets of every post, so he’s clearly being accepted for the multi-topic approach.

      Additionally, there’s always the added advantage of finding out what really drives you from a passion point of view when you have multiple topics. This can then steer you in a direction you would have missed, had you just concentrated on one niche or topic.

      So, for me, if you’re passionate about what you write/discuss, and that comes across to your readers, it doesn’t necessarily matter how many topics you write about – there will always be something for everyone.

      Hope that helps, and thanks again for being here!

      • says

        Hey thanks a lot for the helpful tips, Danny!

        They will certainly come in handy, my friend. :)

        BTW, I also love the design out your site… the footer is incredibly creative.

        Whether I add more variety to my content or not, I will definitely be returning back here to see what goodies you’ve presented.

        It’s a pleasure to meet you.

        Have a great rest of the week!

        Cheers! :)

  39. says

    Hola Danny,

    Your list will probably cost me one hour sleep :-)

    Thanks for this post – and all the others: I found your blog recently, same feeling as when you discover a great TV serie with a set of DVDs: you don’t have to wait one week for the next episode πŸ˜‰


    • says

      Hey there Mike,

      Hopefully that hour will put lots of cool ideas in your head, mate – I know the bloggers involved do that constantly to me. :)

      Cheers, sir!

      Then my work here is done. :)

      That’s definitely the goal, mate. Like you say, we hear the same names all of the time – and there are a ton of equally talented (if not more so) bloggers around.

      Cheers, sir, hope you enjoy!

    Danny, this is my first time on your blog. Your content bares your fingerprints. Your content is completely unique. You clearly march to the beat of a different drummer. I’m exhausted with content parroting.

    To my surprise, I had never heard of even one of the 12 bloggers you showcased. That’s what happens when you’re authentic.

    Keep blazing your own trail.

    Hey Danny,

    Really cool people in here, I’m happy that I know at least three persons from this list so I think I’m going to check the rest of the list.

    Thanks for featuring them and recommending them as well.


    PS. Kudos on you for improving your site’s looks each time I come here. I think the comment form ROCKS man!

    Out of the twelve the only one I’m familiar with is Brankica and I have to admit she deserves to be one as she is a formidable blogger.

    As for the rest, well I don’t have the time to check them all now but I will pick one from the bunch, other than Brankica, to see what he/she has to offer.

    Thanks, Danny! You made last year more rewarding with your posts and interactions. You keep it real and sincere.

    Hello from Sydney, Australia, Danny! Just came upon your blog through Hubspot’s Top 100 and now I’ve found this list. As others have noted it’s refreshing to see a list of recommendations that aren’t the usual social media “celebrities”. Looking forward to checking them out as well as exploring more of your content.Β

      Β @AnferneeCΒ Hey there mate,
      Great to have you over here, sir – spent many a great evening in Sydney when I backpacked NSW a few years back, awesome city and people.
