Every once in a while I come upon an article or a blog post that I say to my self – “I wish I was the author of that one”. So I decided to share 5 of the ones I’ve read again recently. The authors do really deserve a shout out for their work. I do believe you will find them as interesting as I did and learn something new. They are quite lengthy, but are absolutely worth it. Enjoy!
