Blogs and Newspapers

One of the things I really enjoy in the mornings is to have a quiet moment with a hot cup of Joe and the local newspaper. I guess I’m a bit old fashioned and I suspect that my newspaper reading days may be numbered but I’m going to hold on as long as I can.

In the future, I may can still have that quiet moment with my cup of Joe but somehow, clicking a mouse and scrolling down the little screen to read the San Francisco Chronicle just does not provide the same ambiance as cuddling up with a good hardcopy newspaper.

No matter what you are looking for there is a blog or website that can almost give you a Masters Degree for any subject on a moment’s notice. And despite my love affair with the newspaper, I’m out there clicking away , checking the blogs and holding my own with the best of them.

With that in mind, I thought I would share a few business and productivity related blogs that may could help in navigating today’s complex and fast paced business and social environments. This list of favorites were compiled by The Entrepreneur Blog, Audio Transcription blog as well as a couple of my own selections and are in no particular order.
