70 Best Blog Posts I Have Ever Read

This post is number 100 on this blog, and what other best way can I celebrate than putting a list of the most insanely beautiful, meaningful, and inspiring best blog posts I have ever read?

Thinking about it now, starting this blog has changed my views about marketing, content creation, and business. (I’m still waiting for it to change my finances for good, lol.)

Most of my early posts are not that great. In fact, the first year (24 posts in total) is not really that good.

So, if I were to start again, I would use this list as an inspiration for what I should be writing about. I’ll be honest with you; I collated this list in two days of shuffling through the internet and recovering some links offhand and checking my bookmarks and pocket app, and I got a ton of fresh ideas from my blog than I ever did before. And they are ideas that really, really interest me. So, follow the blog if you haven’t.

The list can be a source of inspiration to you, too. Bookmark, share it on Twitter and show it to your friends. That way, you can remember it.
