Hot Business News For September 26, 2011
First up this morning: New Net Neutrality Rules Become Official. The new FCC rules that were approved in December have officially been entered in to the Federal register and will go in to effect on November 20th. What do these new rules mean? Well one thing that they will do is prevent fixed broadband providers from blocking access to specific sites and applications. What does this mean for you? Nothing if you’re a customer to a wireless provider but if you use cable, fiber or DSL it means that you will now have access to all lawful content.
Also in news this morning: How to Use Social Media to Build a Following — And a Business. You know that I am all about social media so seeing this article caught my attention particularly since it focuses on building a following rather than how to hit social media. This article covers a specific example of a business that built itself through the use of social media. Are you using social media to its fullest extent?
Next up this morning: 5 Blogging Mistakes And A State of Wonder. This article caught my attention because I am always interested to see what other bloggers have to say in terms of how they define “mistakes.” So just what are the mistakes defined in this article? “It’s not just content, it’s writing,” “all people love stories” and “lighten up and read for more fun.”
Last up this morning: Do Entrepreneurs Need to Be Crazy? If you didn’t already know from my all too popular straight jacket image I can be a little crazy, so when I saw the title of this article I had to check it out. This article covers three “disorders” that are believed to popularly plague entrepreneurs including: hypomania, delusions of grandeur and narcissism. Okay, so this article wasn’t quite what I expected but I have to say it was pretty interesting regardless. I’m not sure I agree completely but it did make for a good read.
So what was my favorite article from this morning? 5 Blogging Mistakes And A State of Wonder. Why? Not only was it a well written piece but it also included some great points.
