    Moz is another important and good blog!

  • Lydia Di Francesco

    hi Deja,

    I don’t have any specifically about that. Most (good) marketing blogs talk about integrated campaigns.

    I’m sure a quick Google search will find you something on multicultural marketing.

    Good luck!

  • Deja P

    Thank you, much needed information. Might you have any blog links dedicated to multicultural marketing and/or integrated campaigns?

    Hi Robert,

    Glad this was helpful! I’m not sure about Pinterest, but Guy Kawasaki talks a lot of Google+. I’m sure you’d find his stuff useful.


  • Robert Conaty

    Hi Lydia, very useful! Can you recommend any specialised in Pinterest or Google+? Thanks!

  • Lydia Di Francesco


    Yes, it’s actually such a short post, but seems to pop up on Google! I love sharing great content and glad it’s been helpful.

    Lydia- it is funny how you can write a super simple post that ends up being so valuable.  Clearly a lot of people type “good communications blogs” looking for what you put together because it brought me straight here. I have had a lot of trouble finding good blogs that talk communications- this is a good list- thanks for curating- a great service.

    Thanks!! Don’t go to far. I will be posting back here starting in March!

    I stumbled upon this post while looking for new communication blogs to follow. A year after it’s publication, this list is still extremely helpful! Not to mention I found your site… :)

    Hi there Lydia,

    Thanks for the kind inclusion, especially since it’s alongside so many folks I really respect, and some I’m fortunate enough to call friend.

    And completely agree with @pgant:disqus – @SuzeMuse:twitter is good people and wicked smart too. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  • Lydia Di Francesco

    Thanks Patrick! Sue has some really great posts. I can’t wait to read some of her “older” stuff (ie. 3-4 weeks ago) now that I’ve found her.

    If you have any other great blogs to recommend, I’m always looking to expand my list.

  • Patrick Gant

    Great list. Lots of familiar names on there, including my good friend Sue…who is more than just a smart cookie. She’s also a rather fabulous person. :) Thanks for sharing this, Lydia.
