Running a small business has always been an important topic here at Starving the Monkeys. To help with this, SoftBaugh has started a new small business blog. For those of you who remember the Midnight Engineering magazine, that blog will have a similar mix of practical, hands-on tips and anecdotes, including guest articles from people with a wide range of skills. Some articles over there will highlight technology issues, but most of the business-oriented articles on that site will apply to most businesses, technology aside. We’ll also post some self-sufficiency- and politically-specific small business articles here on this site, along with color commentary wrapper from a self-sufficiency or political point of view for many SoftBaugh articles. Jump in, and as always, if you have a topic or anecdote you want to contribute which will help others, be our guest!
