Blogtipping — November ’06

Blogtipping I am joining with my fellow bloggers in celebrating some new blogs that I discovered this past month.  As is the blogtipping tradition, (created by Easton Ellsworth) I’ll offer a few reasons why I like the blog and one suggestion for improvement.

Flooring the Consumer by C.B. Whittemore.  This is a very insightful blog that focuses on how to relate to your customers.

  1. The stories are real, relevant and entertaining.
  2. Although C.B. works in the carpet industry, her examples span the world of retail.
  3. C.B. is very generous with reference links — books, articles, web sites, etc.

Suggestion:  My one suggestion for improvement is that C.B. does not allow trackbacks.  I think her stuff is too good and everyone should be able to find her thoughts.

The Blogfathers by a core group of dad/authors.  As a man who is passionate about being a dad, I love this blog. 

  1. It is authentic, funny, touching and well-written.
  2. The blending of multiple dads gives the blog texture and variety.
  3. The topics are an excellent and real life blend of serious and not so serious.

Suggestion:  My one suggestion for improvement would be to break up some of the longer posts with subheads or something to give our eyes a break. is Noah Kagan’s random ponderings as he meanders through life.  He puts the spotlight on everything from business to life’s purpose and just about everything in between.

  1. Noah’s writing style is conversational but well written.
  2. He has gathered a group of regulars who make it feel like a community.
  3. The authenticity of his musings bubbles up from every post.

Suggestion:  Don’t let the community feel get so "insider jokish" that it becomes a barrier, rather than feeling invited to join a group of friends.

I’m off to find some more great blogs…after all, I only have 30 days until blogtipping — December ’06!
