    Venture advisor, 4x entrepreneur, marketer & strategist. I live in Toronto, curate a lot, blog a bit, and help startups.

Taking a page from the famed Michelin-starred system for rating high-end restaurants, here’s a list with our own star rating. This is purely based on qualitative factors: quality, consistency, frequency, thought leadership and operational advice that is relevant to the entrepreneur.

To read the latest posts from these blogs on one page, please visit our Top 100 Aggregate Blogs page.

This is a very selective list. If you’re on it, you are lucky, but you’ve earned it. This is the creme de la creme. We review this list constantly, so it’s subject to changes constantly. Leave us a comment if we missed a stellar site.┬áThis list is not wiki-editable.

  • one star: A very good blog, worth a reading detour.
  • two stars: Excellent content, worth remembering and visiting often.
  • three stars: Exceptional content, a reading destination, follow their advice.
