2. Listen to Podcasts
Podcasts are amazing because you can listen to them on the go, perfect for if you have a long drive or walk to work. There are many hours in your day you’re doing routine tasks such as washing the dishes, walking to work or working out in the gym. Listening to a podcast whilst you’re doing these can make your time more efficient and enrich your knowledge. Download your podcast before you start your commute so that it won’t cut out if you lose internet.
There are loads of great podcasts out there, we love the In Our Time podcasts by Radio 4, which cover a range of topics including history, culture and science.
3. Subscribe to Blogs from Industry Experts
There are so many great blogs run by industry experts that reveal useful tips and interesting information. Bloggers can monetize their website in a variety of ways, such as banner ads, affiliate schemes and sponsored content. This has resulted in a rise in the number of quality blogs across the internet as experts fight to produce the best quality content and generate traffic to their blog.
Search for your favourite blogs and subscribe to their RSS feed or look for a chance to subscribe to receive regular posts in your inbox so you never miss the latest news.
