    In addition to some of the outstanding long-form pieces of content, the TSL team finds other ways to provide value to their audience.

    The
    amount of blogs on the internet is increasing, and they’re about lots of
    subjects. in the middle of so many of them, its UAE Exchange Social Media blog which i found to be
    very useful for everybody. Link: http://www.uaeexchangeblog.com/

  • Cheval John

    Definitely nominate Tamara McCleary (http://tamaramccleary.com/category/blog/) because she understands the importance of building relationships through social media.

    Tamara is someone everyone should pay attention to in 2015.

  • So many great ones….but have to go with Social Media Examiner. It seems like every post is something I can use or need to know.

  • Pamela Richards
  • Karin Dames

    Social Media Examiner gets my vote. They offer what seems like an objective and unbiased portal of information, the quality of their content is superb, and I love the podcasts with a summary for when I dont have the tume or a good enough internet connection to stream online.

  • Linda Cassel

    My favorite is http://www.kristinehonig.de/ She always hits the trend and explains everything understandable!

    My vote goes for Antonio Calero’s blog (www.antoniocalero.com)
    Antonio’s blog is quite unique and interesting, as he focuses on a
    niche that no other blogs have focused on: user behaviour on Social
    Media. I really enjoy reading his articles and have learned a lot from
    his experience 😉

  • Benjamin C

    I would like to nominate SocialBro’s blog (http://www.socialbro.com/blog). They write in a voice that’s engaging, entertaining, and enjoyable to read and it’s really relevant for a wide range of abilities. There’s a good mix of pieces and some great interviews with major brands offering an insider look.

  • Amber Lennon

    I’d like to nominate Socialbro. http://www.socialbro.com/blog it makes it easier for up and coming entrepreneurs to get noticed on social media and allows their business to grow and become more popular

  • Maisy Fairhurst

    I nominate the SocialBro (socialbro.com/blog) blog! It’s full of insightful content which is accessible to lots of different kinds of people, which I personally find really useful. It’s always of excellent quality, and the banner artwork is fantastic.

  • I would nominate http://www.christiankonline.com/blog of Christian Karasiewicz. It is my favorite blog for how to guides and tutorials of social media & especially Facebook. Even Christian helped me lots of time outside from his blog like in Facebook groups and Messenger chat. Sometimes when I put some questions in Facebook group he comes to me on messenger chat to help me personally. I love his way of helping so my nomination goes to his blog.

  • I’d like to nominate Antonio Calero’s blog (http://www.antoniocalero.com). It’s not a very renowned blog but I follow it and like it for several reasons:

    1. He speaks about User Behavior on Social Media, which is a subject that I don’t usually find in other blogs.
    2. His articles are in-depht and offer effective solutions to real problems we’re facing (i.e. Facebook or Twitter Ads targeting relevant business issues).
    3. I like his section “A Chat with the Masters”, as his questions are really focused on professionals’ issues, which helps unveil interesting answers from the interviewed.
    4. He is very methodical with his tool reviews.

  • Trick question …. how reliable are these nominations, as they appear to be vetted, so how do we know what gets deleted and what gets thrrough your filter system?

  • Frank,

    I can assure you that we do not vet or influence nominations in any way.

    The “filter system” is simply Disqus.

    All comments with links are moderated by a real person, so it might take a day for those to appear.

  • Wow…thank you for the nomination @benetmaria:disqus , I really appreciate your message and your detailed comment.

  • Thank you @lee_daejin:disqus, I was not expected even to be considered for this and this morning I’ve found I’ve been nominated. I’m glad to see my niche is interesting to some…

  • Since I cannot nominate Social Media Examiner, and nominating myself would be inappropriate 🙂 I’ll go for.. Jon Loomer (www.jonloomer.com) . Not an easy decision, there are many other blogs I like and nice people… but Jon’s blog is not only educational, but also motivational. He well deserves to be in the Top 10 another year.

  • Katherine Kotaw

    I am honored by your nomination, Brian, and beyond gratified that my blog has inspired people like you to tell their own personal branding stories in the comments section of my blog.

    I am thrilled when someone says she thinks of me when writing a headline for her blog or when someone says he refined his post after putting his story to the “sniff test,” a blog topic from the 12 Days of KOTAW.

    More important, though, I am deeply moved that my off-topic posts about domestic violence have inspired so many women to share their stories of courage and triumph in personal notes to me.

    I am thankful that the #NOMORE campaign and “Run For Your Life,” the Lifetime movie based on my memoir, “Quicksand: One Woman’s Escape From the Husband Who Stalked Her,” provided an opportunity for these important stories to be told.

    Happy holidays, Brian. It’s been fun getting to know you these past 18 months, and I look forward to sharing more stories with you in the new year.

    First off, a vote from YOU means more to me than I can say. You are such a powerhouse, Paul, and not in the stereotypical “influencer” way, where there is popularity that has somehow deflated the substance, but in the real-deal kind of way, where every time I see a new blog post of yours I feel excited to read it (as I’m about to do now — I saw on Google Plus today you had a new one and it’s going to be my reward to read tonight after a long day of work!) You are a true influencer in the most genuine sense of the term (as opposed to the kind that is said in air quotes!) because you not only write quality work of substance, intelligence and creativity — you also manage to pick though all the superfluous content out there and share the absolute best stuff. There is a reason you are on so many Best lists and I’m just honored our interactions on social media that have come from us reading each other’s work have blossomed into a true friendship. Thank you so much for your kind words, Paul. You have made my evening.

  • Well, what to say, Katherine — this is supposed to be about you! Thank you for your kind words, my friend — now back to your wonderful blog!

  • I’m friends with many of the folks who have been nominated this year and wholeheartedly support the community’s enthusiasm for blogs like PlusYourBusiness and RazorSocial.

    One blog that I would like to add to the list is the AgoraPulse blog, which has really come on strong this year. Top-notch content with actionable data and insights.

  • Thanks, Barb. Much appreciated!

  • Thank you Nicole. That means a lot to me. We try our hardest!

  • That’s very kind of you to say, Paul. Thank you. Much appreciated!

  • Sure do find your content helpful. I’ll be following you more this year. Hoping to get your book for my birthday. I want to use linkedin more effectively.

  • I love so many people and blogs mentioned on this list, so I would rather vote for a TOP 10 list, but since I can only choose one, I will choose Kim Garst’s Boom Social Blog at http://www.KimGarst.com. She has the best social media strategy content on her blog and the best content in social media!
