  1. Thanks for sharing all these links !


  2. You can never say that you have learnt enough, or don't need anymore guidance from others, so thanks for posting these really useful links! You might also like Social Triggers ( which is a great site for businesses and blogs and has heaps of great information :)

  3. these are all very help and inspiring.

  4. I love discovering new website through list like these, bookmarked your post so I can take a look at all of them. Thanks for sharing Bleaq! :)

  5. So pleased you found the list interesting - I hope you find some you like :))

  6. Super pleased you found this list useful.

  7. I absolutely agree.

    I used to read Social Triggers.. but I'm really put off by his shady tactics. I've been reading a lot about blogging consultants/social media experts and there is a lot of dodgy stuff going on and I just can't support it.

  8. Oh wow, I just started reading it, so this is definitely something that I will keep in mind. Thanks for the heads up.

  9. Oh Sophie thank you so, so much for including me on this list! Yay! I'm so happy that you find the Inky blog useful. The feeling is completely mutual, I'm always pointing people to your blog :)

    Plenty of links here I hadn't heard of too, can't wait to get reading! x

  10. I would definitely be wary of the things you read.. the advice is often pretty solid, but it's usually shared in a way to convince you to buy his products and courses.. which are A LOT of money. Many consultants do this; it's all about making themselves sales and often their content isn't worth it.

    Derek is part of the consultancy community, who have a lot of affiliate schemes, dodgy testimonials, and £2000 "courses" that are just a waste of money.

    Be really careful about any money you're considering paying for these kind of products and take the advice with a pinch of salt <3
