I'm a huge fan of small business blogs, but I guess you knew that already! So here are a couple that I'm just starting to read regularly
NikkiPilkington.com – Internet Marketing
Nikki has been helping businesses connect with their customers using the internet since 1994, so she really does know her stuff. And that's refreshing when it seems like half the people on the internet are claiming to be internet marketing experts. (The other half seem to be social media or SEO experts!)
This blog has helpful (non-technical) advice that you can go out and use straight away – I've already learned about a couple of incredibly useful WordPress plugins plus some great ideas for what to write on my Facebook fan page.
Birds on The Blog – Business women blogging – but not just about business…
One day I was browsing around Nikki's blog when I stumbled across Birds On The Blog. And I'm very glad I did. Birds On The Blog is a written by a group of business women, but only some of the articles are about business. It has a wide range of articles – all useful, engaging or entertaining. I do enjoy a good mummy blog from time to time, but it's great to read articles from women who are blogging on other subjects.

Wow – I don’t know how I missed this the first time around – came to your site to read something else and stumbled on it by accident! So sorry I didn’t thank you back in May when you posted it, but thank you very very much for highlighting my blog!
I’m glad I can be of help occasionally and am now off to scout around the rest of your site to see what other treasures I’m missing!
Nikki, thank you! You’re very welcome for the highlight, there’s lots of useful info on your blog and without all the hype that so often surrounds internet marketing. I’m really pleased you like my blog too!
*hangs head in shame*
I didn’t even see this in my google alerts, I found it following Nikki’s link… oh the shame of it, and I read this blog on a semi regular basis and have commented here!
Will you forgive me Helen?
No problem at all Sarah! There’s so much going on in the blogosphere that it’s impossible to keep up with it all. And I feel a bit bad about not having had chance to do those guest posts I promised you. So maybe we’re even now?!
Even… awww, ok – if you insist 🙂 But those posts are always welcome if you should change your mind.
Sarah, I definitely will write those posts, it’s just taking a little while to get around to them (book launch and all that!)
