Blog Day 2007: Six blogs worth checking out

Blog Day 2007On Blog Day (August 31), bloggers try to inform their readers about other blogs worth reading. In keeping with the spirit of Blog Day, here are six blogs worth checking out!

Alkamae -- This is a blog with tips and other information geared towards women entrepreneurs. There are also interviews with women entrepreneurs (entitled "Accidental Pren-her: Stories of the Unexpected").

Lifehacker -- "Computers make us more productive. Yeah, right. Lifehacker recommends the software downloads and web sites that actually save time. Don't live to geek; geek to live." There is always something of interest in Lifehacker and frequently tips that will be very useful.

Linked Intelligence -- Likely you've heard of the networking site called LinkedIn. Maybe you're using LinkedIn and, if you are, probably you feel like you could be using it better. This blog is dedicated to using LinkedIn well. Scott Allen, who writes this blog, even does Extreme LinkedIn Profile Makeovers.

A carnival of entrepreneurs

No, not a place for rides and games, but a blog carnival "where someone takes the time to find really good blog posts on a given topic, and then puts all those posts together in a blog post called a 'carnival'." In this case, people are gathering information on worthwhile blogs posts related to entrepreneurship.

The Carnival of Entrepreneurs is published weekly with someone different hosting it each week. To see a list of past blog posts (and to link to each of them), go here. The last Carnival of Entrepreneurs blog post was written by Steven Fisher and includes information on:
  • How to Write a Headline and Grab Your Prospect by the Eyeballs!
  • You Can Make More Working Less
  • How to React to Criticism
  • How I Became a Millionaire While Working In My Pajamas
  • How Much is Your Work Worth?
Reading this Carnival each week would be a great way of getting new ideas and learning more about being an entrepreneur.
