I still look for new blogs all the time because I truly believe that there is no better way to learn than research and action. One of the best blogs that I have found recently is amyafrica.com. When I found it, I had absolutely no idea who Amy Africa was but as I started reading I found out that not only is her blog or "Qlog" as she calls is informative and fun at the same time. She starts each one of her posts with some little story to drag her readers in and then she springs these awesome tips on you. She calls it a "Qlog" because it is 99% Queries and Quintessentials & 1% Quibblings. I love that!
One of the more interesting entries that can be found at http://www.amyafrica.com is a post called "Puttin Spanx on a Sidewinder". Not only is comical because I can see a similar thing happening to all of us at one time or another, but it lead into an amazing post about what customers really want. Her most recent post was titled "Should you really follow the leader". That post really opened my eyes to make me think that no matter what I do, I always need to look at things from the customers perspective. Just because something is all flashy and pretty doesn't mean that's user friendly.
Needless to say, this is another blog that I will be reading at least once a week to help keep me in the know. I feel like the more I know, the more successful I will be.
