DAY 9: My Favourite Blogs
For the prolific writers and voracious readers, this is the best time to be alive. The 4th Industrial Revolution ushered in by the invention of the Internet brought a fundamental change in society. An avalanche of information is available and can be shared for free globally by a mere tap of a button. Knowledge is Power so says a common adage but it can be power only if it is applied to improve one’s life.
By use of a Smart Phone, anyone can create content and share it instantly; personal issues can go public in an instant or local issues become global. Writers and readers exchange knowledge and education. They can also develop channels for cooperation with other people and groups working on related topics.
With so much free information available, each of us has the responsibility to create relevant and original content and the readers have to decipher the information.
As a reader now turned –writer, I find myself spoilt for choice. While trying to focus on writing, I have trained myself to select the most relevant Blogs which add value to me as an individual and as emerging writer. I keep adding on the list as I go along.
These are my favourite Blogs

3..Michael Hyatt – A virtual Leadership Mentor and Coach. Michel Hyatt was at one time a literary agent.

There are several other blogs that I visit once in a while but due to limited time, I have had to focus on those three to advance my writing skills.
