The word podcast is derived from a combination of two words, iPod and Broadcast. When the term was coined most people were using Apple iPod to listen to podcasts, essentially talk programs you can listen to at your leisure. The rise of the podcast brought unprecedented democratization of programs. Unlike traditional radio, podcast hosts can produce shows in their living room on any topic they choose. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of options flitting about on the web, covering every topic imaginable. So, focusing on the right digital content ,i.e, either podcasts or blogs will make a huge difference to your personal growth and well-being.
I would like to list a few podcasts that i listen to frequently. I usually use youtube to listen to the episodes. These podcasts cover a range of topics from personal development, health and happiness, to productivity, forming new habits, and financial success.

- School of Greatness
- Feel Better, Live More
- On Purpose

To get a better idea of the content of the podcasts, grab a set of headphones or look up on youtube, and get ready to conquer the day and your life.
The most popular choice for creating and putting out content is to start a blog or journal. All you need is internet access, and some writing skill. Web site editors are as easy to use as tweeting or posting on Facebook. However, it can be difficult to keep people’s attention, once you’ve gotten it. But compared to podcasts that consume 30 minutes or more, blogs take less time of your target audience, typically three to 10 minutes. The power of blogs is that they allow anyone to publish and share ideas, and anyone can read and respond to these. They have given consumers and companies a voice, and blogging has opened up a world of information-sharing possibilities.
There are millions of blog posts updated each day. Hence, similar to podcasts focusing on the right ones can bring about an improvement of self. Below is a list of Information Technology, Personal growth and Japan related blogs that i read frequently.
