Curating a list of top blogs I read — because it’s a new year!

Today we’re over-loaded with choice. Twitter posts, tech blogs, Medium posts, Instagram, Whatsapp status. It’s easy to spend your time across a lot of these mediums without learning anything substantial. Click, click & down the rabbit hole you go. Hence now more than ever it’s important to curate your reading list.

A lot of the blogs on this list reflect my active interests — consumer tech more specifically video, AR tech and finance. I’m also experimenting with using an RSS reader to read new posts regularly. Other than blogs I’m also adding podcasts a few podcasts. Please note the list isn’t ordered by my favorites though I've added a note for the best ones.
