Daily Read: 6/3/2014 – The Prerequisite
Here’s my daily round up of articles you should be reading.
Welcome to KnowTechie‘s very first Daily Read! This will be a daily dose of knowledge bombs condensed into one collection here, available to you.
There’s so many great writers out there and I wish I could get on the level as some of these guys, but to get there you have to first off, you know, write! But also, a key part to being a better writer is being a better reader.
While I’m on Twitter, a wave of articles are shared in a rush, and sometimes you can get lost because there so many good pieces being mentioned throughout the internet. I come across a lot of the good ones!
So, I’m going to collect some of the best ones of the day, and share them with you, my readers.
