How to Follow Productivity Blogs
The best way to follow these productivity blogs is to download them to a mobile or desktop app such as an RSS reader. You can also bookmark the websites. You can add a shortcut to your home screen or desktop.
#1 – Lazy Jack
I am starting this list with my blog, Lazy Jack. I created the Lazy Jack blog for people who enjoy reading unique content. I don’t follow trends or copy other productivity blogs. You’re not getting the same productivity tips day in and day out. I found that many productivity blogs rehash the same information. They aren’t providing new or useful information.
The majority of productivity blog posts are from corporations. These corporations write so you will buy their expensive products. Most of the articles from these companies are very basic. Many times, corporations don’t base what they write on real-world experiences. They hire a ghostwriter who only uses online research. Some articles even give counterproductive advice.
I wanted to be different. I write about my own real-world experiences.
If you like this blog you want to keep up, the best way to do that is to become a member or add it to your RSS feed. The main topics of my blog are:
- productivity techniques,
- productivity resources,
- and goal setting.
I release new blog posts weekly on Wednesdays.
#2 – Lifehack.org
Lifehack.org is another blog that I recommend. Lifehack.org releases about 16 blog posts a week. To get the most out of the blog, visit it once a week and read what sticks out to you. The best place to start is the posts on productivity. This blog is not only on productivity.
It covers a variety of topics, such as:

The blog covers the following categories:

The next blog I want to cover is Scott H Young. He releases a new blog post once a week on Monday. Start with the latest blog posts or the Start Here page. On the Start Here page, you can browse posts by topic. You can also register with the section on productivity.
Scott uses various examples and research in his blog posts, which makes this blog a good read. It is interesting to read what science says about productivity.

#6 – Productive Headspace
Productive Headspace is an excellent blog to read. Sindre Kaupang explains productivity concepts from various sources well. He’s good at combining information from multiple sources into easy-to-understand blog posts. The articles in this blog are very detailed.
The blog posts are very long and technical so break them into chunks to absorb all the information. Breaking them up is more manageable than reading them in one sitting. This blog focused on building the skills tied to productivity. Kaupang created the blog to help others be more productive. The blog covers a variety of topics related to productivity.
- accelerated learning

Kaupang releases a new blog post every month. Begin with the general productivity category and then read the latest articles.
#7 – LauraEarnest.com
Laura Ernest is a veteran in the industry. Although Laura’s blog focuses on deliberate living, she provides valuable information on productivity. Ernest releases new blog articles about once a week. She doesn’t have a set schedule on what day she releases them. On her blog, you should start with the productivity category.
Her blog does have a Start Here page because it’s still under construction. You can also start with one of her 30-day challenges. She explains what her challenges are. Then she describes what steps she’s going to do over 30 days. These are good to try yourself. You can understand her productivity methods and how she does things.
Ernest’s blog is also good because of her experience. She has a complete understanding of productivity, and she shares her entire journey. She’s very open on her blog.
