Every half-second, somewhere in the world, somebody creates a brand-new blog, joining the 152,000,000 that already exist. That’s a lot of traffic flowing down Al Gore’s information superhighway.
So, which ones should you read? Other than this one, of course.
One blog that should be on your must-read list is Michael Hyatt’s. If you are unfamiliar with him, I’ll give a quick rundown on why his blog is essential reading.
1. He is a communicator. Nearly everything he writes is related to that topic. You won’t be wasting time wading through irrelevant posts.
2. He has loads of experience in writing, speaking, and publishing that he freely shares. Each post is filled with practical advice that can immediately be put to use.
3. He is a techno geek. He likes to incorporate the newest gadgets and the latest software into his work. That means that you can let him pay to test those work-friendly devices and apps for you. He writes often about his processes and the tools he uses. You get the benefit of his experience, saving you both time and money.
4. He has lots of connections. He will introduce you to lots of experts who can help you improve your speech, your Powerpoint presentations, and boost your page ratings on Facebook. And lots of other things.
5. Leaders, especially spiritual leaders, should be readers. Michael Hyatt will introduce you to editors and authors whose blogs and books will stretch your mind and broaden your skills.
6. Michael is always learning and trying new things. That means his blog is not repackaged leadership lessons from the 1980’s. He writes about current methods leaders are using to maximize their potential. He includes timeless leadership essentials, but shares what he is learning as often as he tells you what he already knows.
7. He embraces young leaders. Most of the experts Michael Hyatt writes about are younger than him, yet he is not too proud to learn from them. He treats them as peers and validates their contributions. That means his blog is always relevant and, while not edgy, out-front.
8. He understands the principles of giving and community. He’s learned that good things happen to the people who give their neighbors a hand-up. He’s figured out that a passionate group creates an energy and synergy that compounds their potential and their influence far beyond what any individual could produce alone. Many successful men lean toward the opposite. Michael pushes his readers to go against that flow.
9. He has good products for sale. You don’t have to buy, but if you do, you will get your money’s worth.
10. He is committed to excellence. Everything he does is first class.
