As a way to give back, and go completely off topic, I’m sharing 30 unique sites that I believe are worth visiting in the coming month of April. I’m not partnered with, nor do I have any kind of personal relationship with any of the site owners. They’re simply a wide variety of topics, styles and subjects that I’ve taken the time to wade through, and pull out some of my personal favorites that I visit to gain inspiration and insight. How you choose to go through them is entirely up to you, but my personal recommendation, unless have the time, would be to visit one site a day, every day, for the month of April. If you’re like me, and enjoy constantly learning and discovery, then this list below will help you jump start your discovery next month. It’s my way to say ‘thank you’ for reading over the past two months and pass on some additional reading material that you may enjoy. Feel free to add your favorite sites that you enjoy visiting and I’ll be sure to add these to the future recommendations.
