Blogtipping — March ’07

Picture_5_1 I am joining with my fellow bloggers in celebrating some new blogs that I discovered this past month.  Sorry I’m a couple days late. It’s been a little crazy around the McLellan house these days.

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.

This month’s nods go to….

My 2 cents is David Reich’s musing on marketing media, public relations and life.  For a novice blogger, David is proving that for some people, it just comes naturally.

Things I love:

  • How you share your professional experiences and make them relevant to the topic at hand.
  • The insights are smart and accessible.
  • You use many different sources for inspiration and point us there as well.


  • Okay, this is silly but make your visuals a little bigger.  They get dwarfed by the text.

Soul to Soul is Madena Burman’s view on life, learning and leadership.

Things I love:

  • How much of your spirit and soul you put into every post.
  • You put a spotlight on your struggles and weaknesses just as often as your strengths.
  • How you share your faith in every post.


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

On Copywriting is Ryan Healy’s look at the art and business of writing.

Things I love:

  • You write about more than writing.
  • You share yourself and your life with your readers — it’s not just business.
  • You’re book list is excellent.


  • Any thought to adding some visuals to your posts?

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

  1. Always fun to see who you point us to at tippin’ time, Drew!

  2. David Reich says:

    Thanks for the tip, Drew. I hope I’ll be able to maintain your interest in the future. And I’ve already started making the graphics larger. Thanks for the good suggestion.

    I’m lovin’ this blogging stuff.

  3. Ryan Healy says:

    Thanks for the nod, Drew. And the suggestion as well.

    Pictures would make it more interesting, yes? I haven’t done it yet, given the columns on my blog are narrow. Perhaps a different template. I will think about it. Thanks again!

  4. Easton — it’s always fun to explore the amazing array of blogs out there to decide who to point to!

    I learn something every time. And my feed reader gets a little heavier!


  5. David,

    I have no doubt that you will hold my and many other readers’ interest for a long time to come.

    Your blog rocks and it was tough to come up with any suggestions that would help it along any better than its going already!


  6. Ryan,

    Maybe I’m just a visual guy, but I like some graphics to break up the text.

    But remember what you paid for the advice. It might not even be worth quite that!


  7. Drew,

    I am humbled! Thank you so much for the consideration:-) I have been meaning to spend more time on visuals. That is definitely something I need to work on. Again thank you for the recognition and the suggestion!


  8. Madena,

    Your blog is a great one — I’m happy to point others to it!
