Joe Libava over at his Franchise King blog has a list of 20 blogs that provide "timely and terrific content that current and future small business owners can learn from.
Anita Campbell's Small Business Trends tops the list. No surprise here. Small Business Trends is a great source of information on small businesses. I follow all the blogs on the list and I'm very happy to see Smallbizlabs among such a great group.
Because it is Joe's list he has left out his own blog, which certainly would be on my list. The extent of franchising's role in the economy is not well known outside of their industry. it is an important industry to track.
