In Bloglist, we ask ecommerce professionals to share some of their favorite blogs and tell us why they read them. For this bloglist, we talked to Michael Stebbins, CEO of Market Motive, a year-old Internet marketing instruction and services agency that provides online courses and conferences calls. Stebbins started Market Motive in August 2007 and has two decades of marketing and Internet experience. Stebbins has also developed a patent-pending web analytics method.
Here are Stebbins’ top five blogs:
Customer Intent is a blog about web analytics, Internet marketing and the process of growing a company that teaches these things to other marketers.

Andy and his staff stay up on the “why” behind the “what” of Internet marketing. They’re great writers. Check out “Linky Goodness.”
Occam’s Razor by Avinash Kaushik
If you want to be a practitioner in web analytics, this is a must-read blog. Avinash educates, makes the complex simple and is irreverent and kind at the same time. He writes just like he talks. You can hear his voice while you read.
