We scoured the Web and came up with a list of the smartest business bloggers. Their advice just might help you run a better company.

There are more than 130 million blogs on the World Wide Web today, and 1.5 million more are created each week, according to the blog tracking service Technorati. It is unknown how many of these are tainted by shameless self-promotion, mindless ranting, and other nonsense — but you can bet the figure is extremely high.
