the Oft-Mentioned Survey and What Blogs Do You Follow?

That thunderclap this morning was the sound of heat breaking. Niiiice.

The survey is now live – super simple, super quick, less than 10 questions,  click here to take it as I do want your (anonymous) opinion. I’ll put the link in each blog post this week and it’s on the main page of the site and we’ll see what we get in a few days time. Results and best suggestions will be published.

Was asked the other day at coffee which blogs I follow, thought it was a good question so here are some that I do indeed check in with regularly. Some – not all. You have a life.

Seth’s Blog – Seth Godin has written thirteen books that have been translated into more than thirty languages. Every one has been a bestseller. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything.

Stepcase Lifehack –  a daily digest on productivity and life improvement

BlogTO, Spacing and Torontoist.

Freakonomics –  Steven D. Levitt is an economist. Stephen J. Dubner is a writer. They co-authored Freakonomics, a book about cheating teachers, bizarre baby names, self-dealing Realtors, and crack-selling mama’s boys. They figured it would sell about 80 copies. Instead, it has sold 4 million, in 35 languages.

Mooney on Theatre, The Mad Craft Shoppe, The Spadina Monologues, Folks Gotta Eat,

TED talks – seriously. Take a TED talk once a day. It is like a multivitamin for your mind and soul. Some of my  favourites are here, here and here.

So there you go – some summer reading and a survey. Off you go!
