5 Non-Writing Blogs I Still Like – Resource Roundup Tuesday

Okay, we’re writers, right? And there are a ton of good blogs about writing out there – some of you reading this have one or more of those.

There are also blogs that are not aimed at writing that spark the imagination and help ground us in our work. Here are five of my favorites. All five have been around for years but they stay fresh, fun and helpful.

Seth Goodin’s Blog – I’m not sure if Seth talks about life, explains his philosophy or explains marketing – all three, probably and a whole lot more.

LifeHacker – everything from your computer to making Ikea furniture interesting – seems like I always find something interesting there.

HeartofBusiness – Sufi Master Mark Silver is an effective consultant/trainer for those of us who own small businesses. Lots of free resources.

ProBlogger – Darren Rowse still has probably the best overall blog for bloggers.

ZenHabits – Okay, I practice, at least some of the time, Zen Buddhism but this blog is ideal for anyone working at home.

What are your favorite non-writing blogs?

    You can find a few of them listed on the ‘Start up Links & Resources Page’ on my – Home Business Lifestyle – Blog. (you can find a link of that Blog near the top of the – Happy Writing – Blog.)

    Btw. on that page you can also find all kinds of practical Outsourcing & Virtual Assistant Services and other Practical Links.

  • I’ll have to check on the Happiness Project – I know the others and you’re right, they’re good.

  • I read a LOT of blogs, actually! 4 out of 5 of the ones you mention are ones I read. I also really like the GTD Times Blog, Dumb Little Man, Stepcase Lifehack, The Happiness Project, and Wise Bread. 🙂

  • Seth is pure genius imo.

  • Thanks for these, Grady.

  • I’m totally with you on Seth Godin. When I see an update in my inbox I’m always excited to read it and that’s what a good blog should be. I love how he writes really short and to the point. I’m also reading his eBook ‘Stop Stealing Dreams’ – how can ya not read a book with a title like that?

    love problogger, he does a really good all around blog about marketing and writing, but the perspective is of a writer who also markets whi is really important.

  • I’ve at least heard of several of these blogs, even if I haven’t visited them much. As to my favorite blogs? Most of the ones I visit frequently are non-writing blogs, so I would have to say A Daring Adventure ( http://www.adaringadventure.com ), MarieForleo.com, I M Relations ( http://www.imrelations.com ), 4tunate ( http://www.4tunate.net ), and Happy Maker Now ( http://www.happymakernow.com ) are my favorites to visit.
