14 Productivity, Organization, and Motivation Resources You Can’t Get Via RSS

Believe it or not, all the online information on Productivity, Organization, and Motivation isn’t available via RSS. Some of it is only available via email newsletters. I have one email address that I always use for subscribing to eNewsletters. I’ll frequently go weeks, and sometimes even months without checking it and then I set aside a few hours to read, or at least skim, a couple hundred email newsletters. I haven’t checked this email address in about three months, so I’ve spent some of my reading time over the past week catching up on my newsletter subscriptions. As I was doing this, I thought that this might be a good time to list some of my favorites for you. These are presented in no particular order. Check ’em out and let me know what you think in the comments!

    Thanks for the good resources. A tip to your readers: As an alternative to a separate email address, consider piping email-based subscriptions into a feed reader, instead of clogging your email inbox. Bloglines supports these anonymous addresses directly. For other tools (e.g., Google Reader) use an anonymous email account that has RSS feeds, e.g., Mail2RSS, Mail Bucket, and Dodgit.

    Hey – I know Valerie Young (Changing course); impressive lady.

    Matt – That’s a great idea… for some folks. I’ve tried it myself, since I’m a heavy BlogLines users. It just doesn’t work well for me personally.
