I usually let Twitter direct me to interesting stuff. But I do like the following blogs:

Gather Content’s blog (from the UK)
Elle Geraghty’s blog (from Australia)
Brain Traffic’s blog (from the USA)

Really Good UX by Ty Magnin This is a great collection of screenshots/GIFs of, well, really good UX! I love the site, but the newsletter hand-picks a smart variety and I appreciate the send frequency.

Jared Spool sends a great UX Thought of the Day. It's brief, highly relevant, and usually linked to a more in-depth resource.

The O'Reilly Design newsletter is really good, too. It's more industry-relevant, but also a little outside of my UX bubble enough to push my thinking. I like the combination of materials they pull from, too.

Farnam Street Blog by Shane Parrish is a blog about thinking…it's really healthy to keep up with trends in your industry, but the way we innovate is by looking at other industries. This blog sort of digs past UX to the psychology and mental models that connect all of us as humans/users. I just love his concise writing style and how much it makes me think and how many interesting connections I've made between seemingly unconnected things.

I adore the UX Collective on Medium; their practical yet humorous approach to content really appeals to me. 

The InVision app team often have really thoughtful blog posts, too, so I get their updates as well.

I love the content strategists Facebook group. The content and discussions on there are so valuable and the community is so giving and open.

GatherContent’s resources section is brilliant. They’re such a great company with a great product, and that means that they're able to really pull together the world’s leading content strategists to contribute to their learning resources.

I’m still a big fan of Twitter for being able to casually stumble on new articles and ideas too. No individual in particular, but I follow a lot of wonderful content strategists, UX folk and specialists in digital engagement in the education sector too.

I depend deeply on the Content + UX Slack group as well as watching Medium posts of companies I like. The Slack group is a great wealth of knowledge whether you’re job hunting, needing help tackling an interesting UX Microcopy problem or just looking for examples in order to execute on a task. Anyone who wants to work in Content/UX should be in this. The group is now hosted by Jess Sand and you can request an invite at bit.ly/ContentUXSlack.
