Copywriting blogs you should be reading today

A few months ago on my Pro Copy Tips blog, I published a short list of copywriting blogs that offer sound and often entertaining advice.

That post got a fair number of comments and tweets, so I thought it would be worthwhile to re-post it here.

A few people emailed me and wondered why I didn’t include this or that blog. One or two people were insulted. But I assure you, this isn’t meant to be a list of the only copywriting blogs, just a list of some of my favorites which I think are worth reading.

So if you don’t see your blog of choice, don’t get your panties in a twist. This isn’t a contest. If there’s a particular blog you like, leave a comment and a link. Okay?

I have no-so-humbly added Pro Copy Tips just in case you copy or bookmark this list. I didn’t want to get left out. :)

    Dean,

    Thanks again for including me in your list. Much appreciated and great motivation to keep posting stuff I think people will find useful.

    That’s a great list. I thought I would add another to the list that I read pretty regularly. I like what this guy has to say about a lot of different topics:

    Thanks for including the Copywriter Underground, though while I’m bothering to comment, I should add that my blog should certainly probably be at the top of the list and that all the others should be removed.

    One of the benefits of megalomania is never having to explain yourself…

    Tom:
    If it helps, I listed the blogs in a totally random order. Well, except for mine. I’m the megalomaniac around here.

    Another great list Dean. I read several of them as time permits. Any direct marketer should learn as much as possible about the direct response creative issues.
