As I was driving home yesterday I turned down a new road that had opened up in Town.. I decided to see where it went and was amazed that it went over a local hill and continued on for miles. I soon found myself deep in wine country and discovered that some new wineries had just opened up. The sky was clear and the weather was perfect. It was amazing how many new things had sprung up along the way. As I was driving along I started thinking about blogging and the usual path I travel on a daily basis. I thought that it might be fun to take a new turn on the blog-roll and see where I end up.
When I got home I decided to start out with a known link on my blog and then follow interesting links as they came up on each consecutive new blog, trying to find a new undiscovered link at each site. It took about 30 minutes and I discovered over 10 new sites. The interesting thing was I found my way back here on the 11th link. It was a fun trip and I learned a lot about small business and entrepreneurism. Here is the play by play.
I started out at Yaro Starak’s great Internet Marketing blog… Entrepreneurs Journey From there I found and interesting site called the Duct Tape Marketing Blog piloted by John Jantsch. This soon led to Anita Campbell’s Small Business Trends a popular destination in the business world. From there a short jaunt took me to Ageless Marketing which made me feel much younger.
As I though about retiring some day a long ways away I discovered a new book blog called The Number. This was a very intriguing site and I realized that to save money properly for retirement I should visit All Things Financial. But even saving might not be enough. I have always thought it would be interesting to start my own business and The Entrepreneurial Mind could help me do just that. But what kind of business would be good?
I found that Bootstrappers Notes had a daily diary of one person’s online business. This was really interesting and led to the Odyssey of the Mind that really made me think. It was so thought provoking that I wanted to Rattle The Cage . My thoughts flew upward and I found myself looking down at the earth. I discovered that I was in Orbit Now and that I had better land soon and take care of my own site called Fire Up Today.
It was a fun adventure and one I highly recommend. Take the road less traveled sometime and discover new things along the way…
