Thank you for visiting our Business News categories guidelines. For your ease of finding what you are looking for, we broke the news down into three areas. These areas are: News Type, Location Type, and Categories. We will be going over each of these areas and their subsections in more details further on this page. The News Types are: Facts, Considerations & Proposals, Forecasting, Thoughts & Opinions, and Interviews. Location Types are: Local, State, Regional, National, and International. The Categories are broken down into many subject matter/topics that you can explore. This will hopefully, lead you to the articles or videos you are interested in. We hope you enjoy the videos and articles provided to you. Take a moment to like them, share them, or comment on them. Big & Small and the contributors appreciate all reviews and feedback. If you are interested in being published, please click on ‘Become a Contributor’ above. We also have a Newspaper so that you can print out a newspaper with these articles for your local area, for you to read them, or to distribute them.

What Do These Categories Cover?

News Type

These are facts, and no opinions are to be interjected into it. These are not to be twisted or taken out of context and must have proof, research, or some other form of validating facts. If you want to share your opinion you have to label it before you share it.

Location Type

This pertains to cities, towns, and districts.


These cover any policy or regulation changes, additions, or removals that may affect businesses. These reports can cover news from the local levels on up to international levels. The contributor must provide written documentation or video documentation of these policy or regulation changes. If the contributor wishes to share his or her opinion about this category, they must first state that it is their opinion before proceeding. They must provide facts to prove their opinion.

Please Note: Opinion pieces must still have reputable sources to support your claim, show how you have arrived at your opinion, and other materials to lend credibility to what you are stating. ALWAYS cite your sources inside your post and provide a link to the source at the bottom of the post. Look into the source to determine legitimacy before using it as a resource.
