Top two are Search Engine Land (preferred) and Search Engine Watch. If your work in PPC i would definitely recommend keeping an eye on #ppcchat on Twitter. Great tips and insights shared by fellow marketers and there is also a weekly chat on targeted PPC issues.

Martin Raamat:

I don’t specifically follow any marketing related blogs but instead a lot of entrepreneurs and investors. They often try to sell you something, so if they get my attention, I often analyze their campaigns to see what they did right... or wrong.

I rarely do, but I think you can find most of the things you need to know in the blogs of Paul Graham, Andrew Chen, Brian Balfour. The First Round Review is also great, Social Capital's Essays as well. There's a ton of useful content out there, the challenge is to find the time to read it.
