[tweetmeme source=”LilBizBigWorld” only_single=false] What is your early morning ritual? Most people I know rush off to work without time for even a mug of coffee. Once they do get to the office, they start the day reading messages, checking emails, the works. It’s only in the weekends that most people get to relax for breakfast, sipping a hot mug of coffee while reading the paper. Well, technology is well ahead of you if you’re one of those people. You can enjoy a good read that’s relevant to your business. Actually, scratch that. You should have a good read, it’s a lot of help. I have gathered a few (15 really, but who’s counting?) of the best business blogs I find to be really insightful and beneficial.

Small Business Trends – You can read anything from press releases, book reviews, commentaries, tips and advices. According to the latest blog rank, Small Business Trends tops all other small business blogs from search engine results, RSS membership, Alexa ranking and others which would take up too much space here. Suffice it to say that the site indeed lists the latest trends and resources, making it a veritable #1 must-read on my list.

Small Business SEM – This is a great place for getting ideas for online marketing. Site is run by Matt McGee who is an independent online marketing consultant so the tips, tricks, rules and advices for the trade are all viable bits of knowledge that you shouldn’t pass off.

Small Business Marketing Blog from Duct Tape Marketing – If you’re still looking for other ways to market your business or just plainly want to read about the latest practical marketing strategies, I think you would find this web blog to be very informative and helpful.

Dane Carlson’s Business Opportunities Weblog – I love how you know immediately what this blog is about. If you’ve missed it. You probably need some reading glasses or a magnifying glass to say the least. According to their own site stat, this weblog has posted about 18,939 business opportunities and ideas. If you are interested in starting a business but have not yet identified what kind of business you’d be most interested in, this weblog is for you.

Small Business Branding – As with all the other blogs I have previously mentioned and those that I will be mentioning later on, this blog is generally about marketing your business and how you could sustain and develop it. From a broad range of topics covering tools, software and web applications down to sales and marketing, any small business owner and start-up enthusiasts would gain a wealth of information from this blog.

Bizsugar – One might say that this site is the central bank of articles related to business. If you have your own blog, you can submit articles which are relevant to business on this site too. This is how it works: you submit an article, people vote for it, more votes, more chances of it being seen at the first page of the site. If you don’t have a blog however, and you just want to read on, you can check out the latest articles for entrepreneurs which are grouped into categories for easier searching capabilities.

Young Entrepreneur Blog – This is not just a blog site, it’s also a social networking site for entrepreneurs, mentors and investors. What I like about this is that like Bizsugar, it is also a community which serves like-minded people.

Noobpreneur Business Blog – Apart from tips and advices that you would get from various authors (the blog site is multi-authored), you could also purchase from books from their E-Store which covers basically what their blog site covers: everything and anything interesting and helpful to entrepreneurs.

The Franchise King Blog – There are some entrepreneurs who opt to franchise instead of start their own brand or line of products. If you are one of them, I highly recommend that you read The Franchise King Blog. It has an array of articles, ebooks, podcasts and you can even ask advice from the Franchise King himself, Joel Libava.

Small Business CEO – This weblog is aimed for CEO’s of small businesses (hence, it’s name). You would find a host of very good information and advices ranging from starting a business, operating, financing and other major aspects. A very informative and factual “how-to” for the aspiring entrepreneur as well as for those of us who are in the business for much longer.

No matter how you stay connected and informed, no matter which weblog you choose, the important thing to remember is that these weblogs serve a purpose and that is to help. Whether you are a young aspirant hoping to break into the small business industry or a retired 50-something career woman who just wants to run your own business. Read, discover, learn, apply. Those are the four keys to a successful venture.
