Each of the blogs I mention have allowed me to learn new skills and given me the mentality needed to make money online. So without further ado, here’s your reading for the week.

Start reading some blogs. Do a search in Google for blogs. If you are a chiropractor, search on chiropractic blogs. If you are a graphic designer, search on graphic design blogs. You get the idea.
