5 Great Small Business Blogs
I love Erica Douglass’ blog. Her writing is insightful and inspirational. From building and selling her first company for $1.1 million at age 26 to her diagnosis and challenges with celiac disease, Erica’s posts offer up a wonderful blend of valuable information and no-nonsense cheerleading. If she can do it, so can you.
Small Business Trends
Probably the top small business blog, the Small Business Trends site offers LOTs of articles written by a number of talented writers. You’ll find a really broad spectrum of articles here – everything from trends in small business banking to marketing how-tos.
Small Biz Survival
Small Biz Survival is written for the small business owner in rural America. It has a charming down home vibe, but don’t assume the content isn’t for you just because it’s not written for the urban small business owner. You’ll find easy to digest articles with on a wide range of topics in jargon-free plain English.
Slick, punchy. Young Entrpreneur features articles like How to Turn a Worthless Business Idea into a Million-Dollar Startup and In Search of Buzz: What It Is and How to Build It. Definitely oriented toward the young, tech-savvy set with big ideas. If you can get past the glossy sheen of article titles, you’ll find quite a bit of useful information, and perspectives.
All Business claims to be the largest small business website on the internet. They certainly have an abundance of articles including many geared toward the home-based business owner, franchise owner, and MLM business owners. I particularly enjoyed the 6 Types of Business Owners. Which type are you?
