Here are five blog posts that I have found helpful this month:
1. Ask the Expert How to Start up an Online Store
This blog post answers all the questions that you might ask when setting up an e-commerce website. This is a really useful post and Karen answers the questions very succinctly. You might want to check out her website for information on setting up a Facebook page too, because she is very good at what she does.
2. Five Ways to Avoid Being a Notworker
This is a great post on how not to network and therefore, some of the best ways to network. There is some great advice here.
3. What Budget 2011 Means for Freelancers and Small Businesses
Staying with Bitsy, here is a great post on the UK budget announcements and how they will affect small businesses. Very useful.
4. Facebook vs Twitter
A new website I have recently come across had this interesting post on Facebook vs Twitter. The website is very useful with lots of interesting information on running a small business.
Finally, Laura Lake at About.com talks about the latest Google feature: +1. It will be interesting to see how the search engine makes use of it in the future when evaluating search results and page rankings.
