HackTheDay – top 100 productivity blogs

HackTheDay got listed in the nice list of “The Top 100 Productivity and Lifehack Blogs” on CollegeDegree, side by side with world-renowned blogs such as 43 Folders,,, Zen Habits and 95 more. Not bad for a blog that I’ve neglected quite a bit these last months.

I know, sh*t happens, but I hate it when it happens all at once. Maybe Karma has something to do with it or it could be just God’s way to show us he still exists.
