It’s rather odd to be reading  a blog that suggests that you would be wise to read more blogs, but there you have it. I believe this is a grand idea for a New Year’s Resolution (in case you were looking for one).

Why, you may ask. Simply put, it’s a great way to have you ear to the ground for what’s new in your area of interest. Wondering what’s coming out in the area of electronics? Many manufactures are more than happy to serve you up with a healthy dose of new. Politics? Even the president-elect has his own blog running.

While I strongly advocate reading trade journals, attending conferences and seminars, and doing anything else you can to remain current in your field, when you have only a short period of down time, a great way to get a quick fix of knowledge is a blog-reading. Little capsules of knowledge and information that can be swallowed in a few minutes are scattered all over the Internet for you to find.

Make yourself a promise to get ahead in your field. And keep in mind blogs.
