50+ productivity blogs

I tried to find up-to-date list of productivity blogs and I could find few old lists with links to 404 pages or blogs which had updates several months or years back.

Here is my fix for the problem. I must admit that recently there’ve been months that I’ve not updated the list.

I did build this list and check that links go somewhere and there is productivity or life improvement blogs behind them.

My criteria for the list:

  • the blog has post from year 2015
  • the latest blog posts is younger than 3 months
  • the blog is mainly about productivity, self-improvement or life balance. I left out some blogs that were part of bigger industry and productivity was only small part of the site.

And one thing. If you find this list useful. Please Share it! That button on the lower left corner gives you all changes to share the list. Thank you.

I’ll update this list monthly. If you think something is wrong or missing, please contact me or leave a comment. I’ll add it to the list at latest next month when I verify that the links work.

You probably already noticed that two superstars are missing from the list. They get links anyway, don’t be too sorry for them ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s nice to notice that I’m not alone.  If you follow all these blogs, you will know where your time and productivity goes – it goes to productivity blogs.
