Here are a list of great blogs, which I recommend and endorse.
Nile Rodgers: Nile is a friend and someone I’ve helped, during the promotion of his life story — Le Freak: An Upside Down Story of Family, Disco, and Destiny. Prior to this, I’d already been a huge fan of Nile’s work for decades. As you probably already know, Nile Rodgers co-founded one of the best known funk bands of all time, Chic. He’s worked with many of the biggest names in music; from Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, David Bowie and George Michael to Duran Duran, Sister Sledge, INXS, Hall & Oats and Diana Ross!
Today, you may know Nile from his multi-Grammy award winning collaboration on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories album and his appearance on the smash hits “Get Lucky” and “Lose Yourself To Dance”, as well as “Give Life Back To Music”. Now in recovery from cancer, Nile’s blog is journalling his progress and his story is as inspirational as his music.
Creative Thinking Hub: This site contains hundreds of ideas and resources to help you think more creatively. Everything on the site is free and it’s written by yours truly! I wanted a place to put my creative thinking ideas, rather than include them here. All of the articles are unique to Creative Thinking Hub.
Spin Sucks: Gini Dietrich is known to most people, because of her work at Arment Dietrich, using online technology in communication, marketing, and HR. I know Gini as someone who invests a stack of her time trying to help other people, via social media and her work as the primary author of Spin Sucks. Gini is also one of the best exponents of using video within blogs to inform and engage people.
Ron Flavin: I’m blessed with having worked with some remarkable people. Ron Flavin is certainly one of them. In short, Ron is a top leadership communications expert and growth and funding strategist. And I mean TOP. Whether he’s advising high-level military leaders or The US Department of Defence, creating successful funding proposals, developing high-impact strategic plans & initiatives, or landing investment capital, he has an almost uncanny knack for understanding decision makers. His blog is packed with ideas you can use and I strongly recommend it.
And finally… a history blog: This one has been added to the list because it’s extremely good and is written by my wife, Sharon Bennett Connolly. Her blog is called History The Interesting Bits.
