While I hope that you’ll consider following THIS blog, which was ranked #4 among the Best Business Branding Blogs of 2013, and join in the discussion or write a guest post to become part of the community (just click the “Click Here to Sign Up…” link in the upper right corner), I’ve compiled a list of what I consider 7 of the best branding blogs around as far as value of content. [It's not all inclusive--there are certainly others worth following.] You should consider following these branding-focused blogs.

Branding Business

Here you’ll find timely, topical takes on the role of branding in the B2B world. Authored by Ryan Rieches, Ray Baird and Alan Brew of RiechesBaird, along with guest bloggers, this blog is a companion to the Branding Business™ Internet radio show. Branding Business is a corporate branding methodology that embraces business strategy to enhance business performance. Brand-building in the B2B world is fundamentally different than it is in the high-volume/low margin, closed–end transactional world of B2C. The distinct branding implications of a considered purchase warrant special attention–the kind given here.
