Blogtipping — December ’06

Blogtipping_1 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.

The Ripple Effect: Maximum Ripple is Steve Harper’s reminder to us all that our lives are intertwined and we can create the professional and personal lives we hunger for.

Things I love:

  • Your questions and musings make me slow down and think.  Thank you.
  • I respect and appreciate how much of yourself you share in your posts.
  • I think your weekly "features" are a great idea.

Suggestion: 

  • Add some visuals to break up your copy.

Do You Q? is Mitch Matthews addictive blog of thought-provoking questions.

Things I love:

  • The randomness of the questions — sometimes silly, sometimes profound.
  • Reading your readers’ comments is almost as much fun as answering your questions.
  • Your visuals are right on the money for your questions.

Suggestion:

  • Post more often and find a way to link your readers to game sales (a contest maybe or helping a charity?)

Slow Leadership is an inspiring, resource rich study on leadership.

Things I love:

  • Incredible content.  Very current and thought provoking.
  • The quick summary feature.  At a glance, I can tell if the post is something I want to read.
  • There’s lots of meat in every post.  I am not left wanting for more.

Suggestion:

  • Include a bio and tell us a little about who you are and what you’re all about.  (If there is such info available on the site, I couldn’t find it.  If it’s there — make it easier to find!)

There you have it discerning readers…until next month’s blogtipping adventure!

  1. Drew –

    You are awesome… buddy!

    Thanks for the feedback and the ideas. They are priceless!

    And I agree… most of the time, it’s people’s responses that make the blog (and the game) valuable.

    Thanks for the idea on the contest or the charity. We’ll give that some thought… and don’t be surprised if a variation of that shows up soon.

    Thanks for checking in.

    Plus, thanks for the head’s up on the other great blogs.

    Keep the great insight flowing buddy!

    Mitch

    Thanks for the post on my BLOG. I greatly appreciate the feedback and would love to connect with you directly what kind of visuals you might suggest. Love feedback such as this but could use some reference points/sources.

    Ripple On!

  5. Steve,

    Your blog is excellent — well deserving of the tipping!

    I’d love to chat with you about blogging, visuals or anything else. Shoot me an e-mail and we can compare calendars!
