The MEGA List of Personal Development Blogs

I made this post because of my previous post. I find plenty of stuff about personal finance, but not a ton of stuff about personal development. Or, health for that matter. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough. In any case, I am sure you guys can help. Here is my current list of personal development sites… I’d like to add more. In fact, I would like to find ALL of them. ;-) So, please if you have a personal development blog or know of one (or a couple) not on this list, add it to the comment section. Then I’ll add it to the list. Your help is much appreciated. Here we go…. THE MEGA LIST of Personal Development Blogs:

Thank you all for your help. If you are interested in Personal Development, which I assume you are since you are reading this, check out the Carnival of Personal Development as well.

Update: Maya @ Think Maya found a Personal Development Ranking Page @ PluginID. It is called Personal Development Blogs and it is scripted so it automatically updates. It currently has 75 blogs there. I have to really go through it, but I think there are still a lot of blogs missing. So keep them coming…

Update 2: Maria @ Never The Same River Twice reminded me that Priscilla McIntire has a big list of user submitted personal development sites at her page here: Personal Development List. Thanks Maria!

Update 3: Avani @ Avani Mehta sent me a list of top PD blogs at alltop.com. The title is All The Top Lifehacks News and it has a list of over 80 blogs with the last 5 articles from each blog. It is basically just a page with all their feeds on it. Good to bookmark and scan.

Update 4: Jack @ Simple Sapien sent me his list of the top Simplicity Blogs. Its called Promote Your Simple Living Blog Here and already has 85 blogs.

Update 5: Everyone that comments on this article will get their byline added to help them standout. If you want something different than your subtitle let me know. ;-)

Update 6: Just remembered I had a link to Leo’s article, The Top 50 Productivity Blogs (most of which you haven’t heard about) @ Zen Habits.

Update 7: Anjamerret @ Pink Blocks introduced me to a list called The 100 Best Blogs for Mind, Body, & Soul. Some of them are websites like Men’s Health but its worth checking out. Personal Health is a theme of this website.

Update 8: Found another list called 100 Blogs that Will Inspire You to Be a Better Person.

Update 9: Found yet another list at Fire Finance called the Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs Ranked. Although personal finance doesn’t directly deal with personal development, it is related and it is also a theme of this site, along with personal health.

Cheers, Jeremy

    Jeremy, this really is a mega list of personal development blogs – great stuff all around! And there are a few new ones in there for me – I’ll be checking them out.

    And, thank you for including me amongst these many fine blogs – I am honored and humbled.

    Hi Jeremy!

    Thanks so much for linking to my site! That is not a very long list — if you dig around, I’m sure you’ll find more! I highly recommend http://avani-mehta.com and http://principlesofpeace.com. They are both excellent.

    Hi Jeremy!

    Sweet list. I am also a fan of many of these blogs as a writer myself! They’ve certainly played a role in my development.

  4. Maria | Never the Same River Twice November 14, 2008 at 8:48 am #

    This list is a bit outdated, but a while ago Priscilla McIntire ran a huge project to compile a Personal Development Blog list. This could keep you entertained for a few years!

  5. Jeremy Day November 14, 2008 at 9:19 am #

    @ Lance – You are welcome my friend.

    @ Ari – I know they are out there, I just need to find them. Thanks for listing those two you gave me. They are added.

    @ Peter – I’ll be adding your site. Thanks for stopping by.

    @ Maria – I just added Priscilla’s site. I’ve been there before and I am actually on the list. Thanks for reminding me!

    Cheers,
    Jeremy

    Thanks for the links guys. I should have over a hundred links after I start looking through all the lists you gave me. Its a lot of work, but I think it is a cool way for people to find new sites they might enjoy.

    Jeremy

  9. Dereck Coatney November 14, 2008 at 5:19 pm #

    Damn. Big list.

    “Sure you could give up. You could settle. Most people do.”

  10. Jeremy Day November 14, 2008 at 5:28 pm #

    Big List and getting bigger. Im not one to settle unless I decide that eventually it just isn’t a priority to me.

    As for this list, as Jack put it, I’m going to keep it a “living” list so people will always have it as a resource to go to.

  11. Glen Allsopp November 15, 2008 at 11:28 pm #
