Other Notable Sites

You'll notice over on the right sidebar is a section titled Other Notable Sites. These sites are, in my opinion, worth taking the time to visit on a regular basis, regardless of what your role in this business may be.

Ad Age Small Agency Diary - this "is a blog devoted to the daily realities of life within America's small advertising agencies. It's a frank discussion of the highlights, lowlights, challenges and controversies faced by agency executives in the trenches." A good amount of what is discussed on this blog applies directly to what agencies in Idaho are facing this very day.
AdPulp - AdPulp follows the ins and outs of the marketing world. With their own observation and commentary, its a worthwhile read.
Adrants - "Adrants provides marketing and advertising news with attitude in the form of a website and daily email newsletter." There's no shortage of the attitude from Steve Hall et. al., but its well written, and right to the point.
Beyond Madison Avenue - Written with an outsider's view of "Madison Avenue" marketing, it echoes the thoughts and opinions that a lot of us seem to have about marketing these days.

Now there will undoubtedly be others, but this should get you off to a good start.
