I wrote about a new blog aggregating service called AllTop last week and it seems they have added a small business category.
AllTop collects the last five posts from dozens of blogs and puts them all on one page, kind of like a feed reader all done for you. It’s a great place to start your day and find lots of new reads. Because it lists only the title of each post, until you hover over it, I find that it’s also a great study in the writing of blog post titles, which are much like headlines or ads for the post.
Studying this kind of thing is one of the ways you can get better in your own blogging and marketing efforts. Become a student of what gets popular and you can find ways to emulate and improve on it – here’s a great example from Darren Rowse from ProBlogger on analyzing the delicious popular page with an eye on what makes a post popular.
