    Great list!!

    Personally, I love to read self Improvement blogs. Because I think everybody should have this habit of self Improvement to grow and become a better person.

    However, I have a little suggestion, you can also add https://gaingrowth.blogspot.com/ in your
    list. It is also a great personal development blog.

    By the way, great article!
