Blogtipping — February ’07

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.

A Hero A Day is building a virtual quilt of courage through the deeds of those who chose to make a difference.

Things I love:

  • The spirit of your efforts — "we are all one. Love is the only answer."
  • You highlight an amazing array of leaders and heroes from every walk of life.
  • The photos somehow capture the spirit of each person.

Suggestion: 

  • Rather than just a quote — I really love the posts where you either tell us why this hero matters to you or tell us more of their story.

Be Yourself – Everyone Else is Taken is Chris Gribble’s view on life, learning and leadership.

Things I love:

  • The randomness of the posts.
  • Great conversational style.
  • How much of Chris you put into the posts.  They’re not some 3rd party musing.  They’re very genuine and personal.

Suggestion:

  • Graphics to illustrate your point would be a good addition to a good blog.

The Inner Entrepreneur is Douglas Eby’s look at leadership.

Things I love:

  • Content/experts that provide lots of new points to ponder.
  • Great book references. Lots of new suggestions for the reading list.
  • There’s lots of meat in every post.

Suggestion:

  • Tell us more about you — your background, your expertise.  And, a little nit picking, make the photos larger.

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

  1. Thanks Drew for dropping by I’ve been really busy lately so haven’t given the blog the attention that it deserves. You have encouraged me to keep on going.

  2. Chris,

    I’m glad to hear it. Your voice is well worth the read. I’ll be looking forward to even more of it!

    Drew
