Five Blog Posts Worthwhile Reading 2


5_gems_gifI love reading other blogs, and I do love it when I find a blog that I manage to spend some time at. I do actively seek out blogs I have never read before, as there is a lot of good stuff I do not know about out there. I suggest that you also try to spend an evening trying to find yourself a new blog now and then. Well I have collected some new posts that I want to share with you today. Ok, I have one of these blogs in my RSS reader from before, but four out of five is brand new to me. I hope you enjoy these blog post from other hard working bloggers.

Ian’s Messy Desk
A messy desk is a sign of a good leader, not getting caught up in trivial tasks such as cleaning. I have never seen Ian McKenzie’s blog before and I like it. I found many great articles in his archives. His blog is now in my RSS reader, and I am looking forward to reading more of his great content. I know I have never heard of this Canadian blogger before, but he have more then 3000 readers, maybe many of you have read his blog before. His latest post is about asking the right questions in order to solve a conflict.

Management Craft
I have a strong feeling that I have seen this blog before, but I can’t quite pin it. So it is on the list this time. This blog is written by Lisa Haneberg. According to Alexa Page Rank this site have to little visitors in my opinion. Great content, and it fill one of my requirements, I feel the need to learn at least one thing while spending my time at the blog. And I do at Lisa’s Management Craft. I did like her 10 ways to handle complaints But I recommend you to read more of her archived posts as well. Lisa, your blog is now enlisted in my RSS reader.

Noel Bellen
This was a fresh breath of air to me. This Belgian blogger is writing mostly about marketing and sales, not as much about leadership and management, but hey, as a leader you should know more than just leading and drinking coffee. I did enjoy his post about achieving your sales goals. So to become a better sales person, read his blog. Tip, do also check out some of his other recent blog posts and you will find some creative ways to use a printer. Noel, your blog also made it to my RSS list this week.

Knowledge Jolt with Jack
For some strange reason I thought Jack’s last name was Bolt… But no, Jack Vinson is his name. I did enjoy his post about a very short but difficult word, no. I found more interesting stuff on his blog, luring me to return to his blog and read more later on. Jack, I am a new subscriber and a returning reader.

The Practice of Leadership
This is the one blog already in my RSS reader, but George Amblers blog deserves it’s spot among today’s five gems because of a fish bowl. This blog post is a good reminder to people in leading positions. Leaders Live in a Fish Bowl read on and I hope you enjoy these five gems.

So this was my five gems of the week. If you know of any new blogs or a blog with few readers/visitors, but with great content? Give me a heads up!

    Giiiiiiinaaaaaa! I am so happy to see that you found something new!

    To all other bloggers that read this: I challenge you to find your five gems as well. Try to find 5 blog posts that are great preferably from unknown but frequent updated blogs. It can be quite hard to find new blogs, or well hidden blogs, and some of them deserve the attention other bloggers can provide. Start digging for those gold posts out there.


  5. Thanks Frode! Some new blogs to add to my reader! Greatly appreciated.

    Best, Gina

    Hi Steve.
    Thank you. There is so many great blogs and so little time. I have a goal to read at least 10-15 new blogs each week. Some stick, some I don’t understand, some are boring, outdated, to much and just not interesting. But there is gems, good blogs with a lot of useful tools. I love blgs that give me reminders or teach me something new. 🙂

  7. Frode,

    This is really helpful. It’s difficult to stay on top of all of the good contributors out there (Lisa at Management Craft has been in my reader for a long time).

    Much appreciated!
