There are a bunch of great blogs out there that discuss entrepreneurship and early-stage venture investing. These blogs have great original content and, most often, link to other great blogs and relevant content. Inevitably, while reading, I find myself far away from the original blog post I started on via click-through after click-through. I encourage anyone who is thinking of starting a business or raising capital from angels or VCs to spend a day or two (or twelve!) trolling through the following blogs. You will learn a ton about the industry, how VCs think, what they look for, etc. The bloggers I've chosen below keep their content fresh, timely, and relevant. Enjoy.
