Blogs by business-owning parents?

Can you recommend well-written blogs/sites of parents who run their own businesses? There are a TON of results on Google and I just can't sift through them all, so I thought I'd ask here. Blogs by parents who have very young children are great and ones that have very young children AND a full-time day job while trying to start their own business up would be excellent. [more inside]

Working 9-5- still a way to make a living?

Does anyone work 9-5 anymore? (Aside from government employees, that is.) I just got a job and my hours are 8:30-5. I've noticed that many of my friends work similar hours- 8-5 or 8:30-5:30 or 9-6 or even later. Is "Working 9-5" a thing of the past?
