To tell you the truth, there are two more lessons that I learned–or, more accurately, relearned. First, “if you don’t ask, you don’t get.” Second, “sometimes it’s better to be lucky than smart.”

In a recent post, “15 Entrepreneur Blogs Worth Reading,” WSJ reporter Wendy Bounds mentioned Guy’s primary blog, but he was angling for a mention of alltop.com, his aggregation site, which corrals all of the top news by categories, such as venture capital, startups, environment, etc.

Check out his blog post for an approach that goes beyond the basics, resulting in a Bounds blog post focused on Alltop.
