I follow almost 100 hundred blogs through Google Reader, including mom blogs, dad blogs, tech blogs, a few business blogs, and even a couple of personal improvement/leadership blogs like MichaelHyatt.com, which I’ve written about on this site previously. Each day, I have about 60-70 new RSS feeds, and believe it or not I read them all. What I’d like to do in this post is highlight a few links from the blogosphere that I like, love, and find very helpful. I think I’ll call it my Link Love List #1.

Don’t fret, the guys at Howtobeadad.com have listed all the booger nutritional information in a handy instructional diagram called Booger Nutrition Facts.

Jeff Goins is one of those probloggers, but out of them all he consistently writes good shit. Not spammy, no cheap sales techniques, just good stuff. Here’s one he did on Writing for Yourself.
Social media is such a big part of our lives these days, and I think SM usage will only increase. I’m always annoyed by people who get a twitter account and then only send out links to stuff they’re selling or a new post notice.
