I’m asked regularly what blogs I read and recommend. People gasp when I tell them that I scan about a hundred blogs a day. I’m addicted to reading, but I think it’s a good addiction to feed, as long as I’m intentional about it. I believe the cliché that “leaders and readers.” I also believe reading educates you and education is yours forever, it cannot be taken away. And, of course, I’m a writer. I agree wholeheartedly with the Stephen King quote:
If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write.”
But remember the thing I wrote earlier about being intentional about reading? What I mean is being intentional about reading (as in actually doing it) and about what I read. I like reading blogs, so it’s easy to get such a large blog feed that I can’t read through it daily. It builds up and becomes an overwhelming stressor instead of something I love doing. Also, the more blogs I read, the less time I have for reading books, which is what I really find relaxing.
I decided to pare down the list of blogs I read to my manageable favorites and share them with you. I hope you find this categorical list helpful.
jgombita Just my list of what I like to read. I get asked a lot, since I read so much.
profkrg but my point is that those are not “blogs.” They are publications. Esp. Ragan.
profkrg P.S. Of course I can’t help but notice that your choices are 100 per American-cent-ric…..
jgombita Curious… what would you add to the list? I’m always looking for recommendations.
profkrg visit far too many sites re daily curation prconversations couldn’t narrow it down to few. Why not ask PR profs? eg behindthespin
