Today, on Razoo I posted 3 Steps to Using Twitter to Gather Nonprofit News. The post has a good list of cause marketing resources if you're upping your commitment to following cause marketing news and trends in 2013.

But man does not live by cause alone. I learn a lot from reading the tweets of people in different fields and industries. Here are the people I follow on Twitter that cross-pollinate my writing and ideas.

@GeoffLiving: I think I get more links and new people to follow from Geoff than anyone else. Mobile, social media, tech, writing, rants, cross-dressing - Geoff has it all!

@AdviceToWriters: Even with two books under my belt, I call myself a blogger, not a writer. I have a long way to go to earn that distinction. But the daily tidbits from @AdviceToWriters inspire me to keep trying.

@DanBlank: He's helping me and others build our author platform - one tweet at a time.

@BevNetCraven: John Craven is a beverage guru who's showing me the ins and outs of his industry, and its connection to cause marketing.

@CNet: Tech news for techie wannabes like me.

@JonahLupton: Startup guy and entrepreneur who's teaching me the biz!

@BigGuyD: Don Martelli is teaching me everything I need to know about public relations, digital strategy, tech and life in general.

@SEOSEM: Jeff Selig is my go-to source for anything related to SEO - or anything else I don't understand.

@PeteWright: Podcast and video genius. I'm hoping he can make me sound and look better in 2013. He's going to need all the support he can get.

@JasonFalls: I've learned a ton from Jason on Digital Strategy. No bullshit or pulled punches.

@DStevenWhite: Steve's a professor somewhere in New England. Great tweets on mobile technology.

@JeffWiedner: Full-time tree hugger. Jeff's teaching me how to save the world.

@JohnHaydon: Facebook and social media genius. My twal since I joined Twitter!

@TheRichBooks: He's the guy that got me onto Twitter in the first place! For you, he's a Mainer with great advice on digital marketing. He's kind of funny too.

@UQRme: If I have any questions about QR Codes, or anything else that links the digital world to the physical world, I ask these guys.

@JohnAgular: John always has great stuff on blogging.

This is my list of good people to follow on Twitter. Who's on yours?
