Many moons ago, I did a post called 13 Event Industry Blogs and Sites That You Should Check Out.

That post, thanks to the little internet fairies, has gotten some play lately bouncing around those darn interwebs so I thought I should update the list because over time, my horizons have grown and I have met or come across some amazing people that we should all be taking the time to read. There are also some blogs that I love that are not on that list.
