All the Top Stories

Hopefully you consider Mine Your Own Business  a valuable resource for running your business.  One of our goals is to connect you with items that you can use every day.  One way we do that is by watching other small business reference sites.  Here’s a good one, called Alltop. 

Alltop is short for "All the Top Stories" and their tag line is "We’ve got all the top stories covered all the time." They do it by running more than fifty web pages, each dedicated to a particular subject, ranging from world news to comics, each one updated every ten minutes.  Check here for a complete list of their topics and click here for the story of how Alltop came to be.  The concept is the brainchild of Will Mayall, Kathryn Henkens, and Guy Kawasaki.  (Yes, that Guy Kawasaki; best-selling author of The Art of the Start.)

One of the Alltop sites that I use regularly is one cleverly called "Small Business".  It aggregates many of the sites that MYOB references on a regular basis including Entrepreneur.com, Inc.com, Seth’s Blog, Duct Tape Marketing, and as of today, Mine Your Own Business.

Here’s a screen shot of the site.

As you can see, each of the blog listings includes links to the blog’s most recent posts.

If you hover your mouse pointer over a post title, you’ll see the first few lines of the post, making it easy to decide if you want to read more.

For anyone who reads blogs on a regular basis, the Alltop sites are well worth adding to your list of resources.  I’ve added a permanent link to the Small Business site under "Links" in the left hand column.  You can click through to any of their other sites from there.

Try it.  I think you’ll find it a very useful addition to your list of on-line resources.
