The Always Up-To-Date list of the top 50 Productivity blogs

This is a list of the top 50 productivity, lifestyle-design, or efficiency blogs by traffic ranking. This list updates automatically every 24 hours so you see realtime changes.

For those unfamiliar, the rules are these:

To get on this list, there are two conditions: first of all you must be regularly (but not exclusively; many of these bloggers explore a range of topics) posting about some aspect of productivity.

The second is pragmatic. For fairness, the blog should be the reason that most people come to your site, not the only reason, but it should be the main one.

I use this list of blogs as the source list. It’s growing and shrinking as the process goes on and it’s now about 300 different sites. If there is a website that should be on that list, please let me know. I’m keen to make this as broad as possible (it was 120 blogs a while ago, but there were some low quality ones towards the bottom, so I’ve pruned and will let it grow organically again).
