Personal Development Websites

I came across this list a few months ago on Christine Kane’s blog. There are a stunning number of blogs dedicated to personal growth and development. I think that some of them are trying to follow in Steve Pavlina’s very successful footsteps. I read a few of these regularly, but have not explored many of them yet. Generally, I find writers I love who then suddenly stop posting. I miss Adrian Savage with his Coyote Parables (his old website with great stories is gone). David Cheong  now posts only very infrequently. Hopefully someone on this list below will fill the void.

EDIT: There are many, many more links than these. Priscilla Palmer is maintaining and regularly updating a master list HERE. In her comment below, this list is approaching 1000 blogs. She also has a quick link to get her complete list so that you can transfer it to your own site. What a wonderful resource. Thank you Priscilla.
