5 Blogs I Turn to for Inspiration
People read differently these days. Google is shutting down Google Reader for RSS subscriptions and Amazon now sells more ebooks than print versions for several years. I stopped using RSS readers a few years ago when Twitter came on the scene. There's something about the brevity of Twitter that's good for people on the go.
Now I use Twitter almost exlusively for reading but there are a few excemptions. I still enjoy going to someone's blog to see what they are up to and to "crack open" their daily posts.
Who do I turn to for insight? Read on...
- Shrinking the Camel- by J.B. Wood, Shrinking the Camel is quite honestly one of the best written blogs there is when it comes to putting faith into work. J.B. is a master narrator of the events of his life and how God's providence integrates with the most mundane of activities. A classic post: Thanks for the Lovely Gift Basket.
- Michael Hyatt- the gold standard for productivity bloggers. Michael is also a devout Christian- combining both geekness with God. A classic post: 5 Characteristics of Weak Leaders (and how not to be one)
- Ron Edmundson- Ron is a pastor of a traditional church and is an incredibly adept blogger. He finds a way to talk about his church without outing difficult folks. Always a good read. A classic post: 10 Things I'm Learning Leading Church Change.
- Time Management Ninja- written by Craig Jarrow, TMN is all about practical tips and tricks. With a nod to Apple geeks (just sayin'), TMN is always, and I mean always, useful for decreasing drag on your work systems. A classic post: 10 Ways to Save Time With Evernote.
- Michael Nozbe- written by Michael Sliwinski of Nozbe fame, this blog provides a behind-the-scenes look at one of today's best techpreneurs. Michael does business the right way and has created an avid following in the process. A classic post: Combating Resistance: the 10 Step Productivity Course Recorded.
These sites work for me when I need encouragement along the way. Where do you turn for inspiration?
