Seth Godin’s Blog and Mashable Top the List, With Godin’s Blog Also Named “Favorite,” “Most Valuable,” and “Most Enjoyable to Read”

Though there were a number of “Best of Blogs” lists offered by a variety of blogging connoisseurs to close out 2009, the Marketing Executives Networking Group (MENG) chose to survey their nearly 2,000 executive marketing members to determine which marketing blogs, written by non-MENG members for objectivity, were actually being read by marketing executives.

Seth Godin’s blog, well-known and respected in the executive marketing community, was the most-read blog capturing 59% of the member responses. It also garnered 34% of the vote for “favorite marketing blog,” 24% of the vote for “most valuable marketing content,” and 35% of the vote for “most enjoyable marketing blog to read,” leading all three categories.

With 38% of MENG members reading Mashable, it ranks as the second most-popular marketing blog, followed with a tie for third place by blogs penned by Chris Brogan (30%) and Guy Kawasaki(“How to Change the World”) (30%), and a tie for fifth place by Tom Peters (20%) and John Jantsch (Duct Tape Marketing) (20%).

Each of these aforementioned blogs, along with the following 10 top blogs, received votes in all three of the coveted categories: “favorite marketing blog,” “most valuable marketing content,” and “most enjoyable marketing blog to read.”

They include:
