Keeping Up With The Biz

Right now I’m, I guess what you can call, between projects. There’s always something to do, sure, but my team has kicked off a few projects and we’re ahead of some others being fully defined. So what do I do?

There are a bunch of web sites I visit on a daily basis, but I hit them up first thing in the morning before I start my day. Those sites are:

  • adage.com – for ad industry news
  • adrants.com – for ad industry news
  • adweek.com – for ad industry news
  • agencyspy.com – for behind-the-scenes ad industry news
  • brandrepublic.com – for ad industry news across the pond
  • digg.com – to get a sense for what’s happening on the Internet
  • espn.com – to see what my favorite teams are up to (and to see what advertiser took over the home page)
  • facebook.com – to connect with my friends
  • mashable.com – for digital industry news
  • msn.com – to see what advertiser bought the home page
  • techcrunch.com – for my digital industry news
  • trendhunter.com – to see what products and things are heating up
  • yahoo.com – to see what advertiser bought the home page
  • youtube.com – to see what advertiser bought the home page and to see what the hottest videos are today

In all, while I’m drinking my coffee and opening up my email inbox, I open 13 to 15 different sites. I catch up on stuff for the 2 hours that I’m here before the rest of the team gets in. But that’s my morning. During the day, if there isn’t much to do I wind up hitting the same sites over and over and getting bored because the content doest refresh as much.

What other sites out there would you suggest I add to my list? Which would you suggest I remove?
