Blogtipping — June ’07

Picture_5_1 I am joining with my fellow bloggers in celebrating some new blogs that I enjoyed 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.

Because it’s graduation month for so many…I’d like to tip my mortar board to these three marketing student bloggers. I only wish I was half as smart as they are when I was their age. Who am I kidding..I’d still like to be as smart as they are.

I hope all three guys pass on the availability of the FREE e-book written by marketing pros about how to break into the business.

This month’s nods go to….

Student PR Blog is Chris Clarke’s way of reaching out to PR and Communications students and graduates with news they need to know.

Things I love:

  • The depth of information.
  • That you don’t stop at just giving us the facts, you also give us your insight.
  • You update your posts to keep them current.


  • It would be nice if you broke up some of the long posts with some visuals, when you can.

A Student’s Guide to Connecting is just that.  Andy Drish just finished his junior year at Drake University and has already made more connections than I have!

Things I love:

  • The diversity of your posts.
  • That you’re so hungry to learn and you share that learning with us.
  • Your natural, engaging style of writing.


  • How about some visuals to illustrate your points?

The trio would not be complete without Ryan Karpeles and his blog Living Light Bulbs.  Ryan’s done a remarkable job of reaching out to the marketing bloggers world-wide.

Things I love:

  • Your insights are refreshing and thought-provoking.
  • Great, conversational style.
  • You interject a lot of your personality into your posts.


  • It would be very interesting to track your job hunt, once you get started on it.

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

    Aw shucks, thanks Drew. I’m flattered! Point taken – visuals have always helped ME when reading blogs, I should take the extra time to add them.

  2. Chris,

    I just think it invites the readers to stay a little longer.

    I look forward to continuing to read your work.


  3. Thanks for the link love and the positive feedback, Drew 😉 But how dare you offer suggestions!


    I’ll try to spice things up a little with some job hunting reports. I’ve actually been tempted to write about it a few times, but thought that it might not apply to the readers as much. But who am I kidding, everyone can relate to job searches.

    Thanks again for all your kind words, and everything you’ve taught me.

    P.S. My stomach still hurts from laughing so hard last night. Jerky for prez in ’08!

  4. Ryan,

    I know…I can see the jerky meme right around the corner.

    You’re right, everyone can relate to a job hunt — from one side of the desk or the other. So, look at it from all angles and your readers will enjoy it.


  5. Your suggestion about the job hunt just reminded me of a (supercool) story worth telling. I’ll be sure to write a post on it when I get a chance.

    For now, I’m off to fashion an edible chocolate glass. This could get messy…

  6. Ryan,

    I’ll watch for your post…


  7. Andy Drish says:

    Thanks for the link, Drew! And especially for the suggestion! Those help so much. As long as work allows, I’m going to plan on being at your Branding Breakfast this Wednesday. I’m looking forward to catching up!

  8. Andy,

    I’m sorry we didn’t get to chat at the branding breakfast. I love your blog…it’s fresh and crisp.

    Let’s grab coffee soon?
