Blogs

There is so much amazing information on the Internet. There is almost too much good stuff. And unfortunately, lots of bad stuff as well. So rather than browse the Internet, I subscribe to various blogs directly. That way I can consume the information that matters before getting distracted by everything else. RSS (Real Simple Syndication) is the technology that allows you to subscribe to blogs and Feedly is the software I use to read blogs.

Here are the ten blogs I go to first every morning.  Some of these get updated daily, some are weekly and others are monthly. All are awesome. They are not ranked.

Also, just in case this is interesting to you, here are my ten favorite books and podcasts.

1. Derek Sivers

Derek Sivers is somewhat of an entrepreneur philosopher king. His writing is creative, thoughtful and always valuable.

2. Seth Godin

Seth Godin is my marketing role model. I got my MBA from him and buy all his books.  His blog is brilliant. Read it and you don’t need a college marketing degree.

3. Signal vs Noise

This blog is run by the brilliant minds behind the software company Basecamp. Great information about running a company without breaking your back.

4. Get Rich Slowly

J.D. Roth writes about personal finance. J.D. is super relatable and one of the rare personal finance bloggers who doesn’t constantly brag about how rich he is.

5. Paul Graham

Paul Graham is a star investor. His deep essays are legendary.

6. Andrew Chen

Andrew Chen is also a VC who writes brilliant essays about how to grow companies.

7. Conversion XL

These guys write mostly about how to increase conversions in your online marketing campaigns.  A niche topic but they’re the best in the biz.

8. MOZ Blog

MOZ is an SEO software company in Seattle. It’s a great company with admirable values and their blog is where I send any student who wants to learn more about search engine marketing.

9. James Clear

James writes about habits and how to do more of the good ones and less of the bad ones.

10. Venture Hacks

Naval Radikant is one of the guys behind this blog. I read it years ago and it just got re-started. Brilliant insights about life, business and building true wealth.
