One of the most enjoyable parts about writing a blog is reading other blogs. Reading other blogs is useful for several reasons. First blogs provide divergent viewpoints and insights which prove interesting and often inspiring. Second, blogs provide great resources which I may not have otherwise been aware – these may come in the form of other blogs, websites, and books, among others. Finally, blogs are a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of society.
Here are a couple blogs that I have found interesting of late:
1. Douglas Rushkoff: One of my favorite authors. I can’t say that I always agree with his viewpoint, but I greatly respect his convictions and willingness to put his ideas out there. Douglas Rushkoff has an interesting blend of intriguing fields which make for a unique experience. Rushkoff was the first author that really made me consider the impact of individual actions on local business and the community. Read more about his book “Coercion” in my past article called “The Coercive Sale.”
2. The Entrepreneurial Mind: I discovered this blog through “The 75 Best Business Blogs of 2009” article written by Business Pundit. The Entrepreneurial Mind is authored by Dr. Jeff Cornwall of Belmont University and is meant to address “issues, statistics, findings, and policy relevant to entrepreneurs.” Although at this point I’ve only read a couple articles, this blog could be interesting to the entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs out there.
