Weekly Round-Up #100: 100+ Productivity Blogs You Need To Read In 2017

Wow! I can’t believe we’re at 100 posts in our weekly round-up series, where has the time gone?

To celebrate I’ve put together a list of blogs that you need to checkout in 2017. It started out at 100 but that was a bit limiting so we’re now on over 120 productivity blogs in this list! If you think I have missed one out and would like me to add it, please Contact Me so we can share it with everyone.

The list below covers a wide range of topics from blogs about work-life balance, minimalist workplaces and making your office space more productive to great authors who write about self-improvement, motivation and positivity.

Because it was too hard to pick an order to put these blogs in – they’re all fantastic – I’ve ordered the list alphabetically to be fair. The one caveat for inclusion was that ttihese blogs had to have posted a new article within the past 3 – 6 months.

If you want to add these great blogs to your RSS Reader you can download a zipped OPML list of the feeds at the end of the post.

I hope you like this Round-Up and don’t forget to subscribe to by blog using the form below to stay updated with productivity techniques, self-improvement and motivation tips, free downloads and of course my weekly round-ups of productivity news.
