Some of the most influential & knowledgeable Salesforce people in the world are Salesforce MVPs. They have a phenomenal amount of knowledge on Salesforce. So for me keeping an eye on Salesforce MVP blogs keeps me up to date with the latest goings on in the Salesforce ecosystem.
So here is my list of Salesforce MVP Blogs. I have to say when I started it I thought it wouldn’t take too long… BOY there is a lot of MVPs now! Some MVPs don’t blog as much as they focus their attention on user groups and other social networks but I’ve included everyone I know… I think.
I post the best blog posts from MVPs to my twitter. Follow me to check them out!
If you are looking for non-MVP blogs, checkout Salesforce Ben’s Ultimate Salesforce Blog list.
