As I keep a fairly close eye on incoming web links, referrals and so on, I am always surprised when I find myself mentioned on an unknown website. Even more so when I find that I am on a list … after all one of the purposes of a list is to let participants know that they are on it.
It took the digitally ambidextrous Greg Verdino to point me in the right direction of Junta42 — a publisher with yet another Top Marketing Blogs list. The Junta42 list is, however, slightly different from many of the others — the focus is on "content marketers". (This is something bound to make Marcus happy — and I have already submitted Content Will Kill Your Agency.) This means that they are looking at:
… relevant and valuable content [that will] attract, acquire, and engage a clearly defined and understood target audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action.
This list also has a difference — you can vote up your favourite sites and articles a la Digg. I don’t actually make the top 42 — I am languishing down at #66 — but there are quite a few sites that I have never seen before — so that makes Junta42 a good place to hang out for some marketing blog goodness. It will be interesting to see if Junta42 gets traction.
