Here is how John defined his list:

"I define a Business blog as one that provides business ideas,

advice, commentary or feedback on business in general. I’ve excluded

any site that I feel is primarily a news based site or that is merely

posting content from other sources. I’ve also excluded sites that are

too new or have not been updated for over a month."

Thanks for accepting the challenge. Hey, you’re in Cleveland! I didn’t realize you were local — I’m just 40 some minutes south in Hudson.
