Blogtipping — September 2007

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.

This month's nods go to….

Loyalty Marketing Blog is Jonathan Treiber's "industry watch" on loyalty marketing. 

Things I love:

  • The depth of information.
  • That you don't stop at just giving us the facts, you also give us your insight.
  • Lots of great current case studies in the posts.

Suggestion: 

  • You don't seem to link out to other bloggers within your posts.  I think that would make  you much more findable and add even more depth to your analysis.

SpinningSilk Multi Media is a tightly woven blend of tips, stories and recommendations.  Patrick and Heather Greer have grown their business from a moonlighting gig to a full-time thriving business.

Things I love:

  • The diversity of your posts.
  • How you share your own experiences and hard learned lessons.
  • Your natural, engaging style of writing.

Suggestion:

  • How about some visuals to illustrate more of your posts?

A relatively new blog on the scene, IowaBiz.com is a small business owner's dream come true.  12 experts, each with expertise in a different arena, offering their best counsel for building and growing a successful business.

There are some bloggers you'll recognize and some you should get to know.  Every day, a new business insight in a different area.  Chock full of smarts.

Things I love:

  • Clean, simple design.  Easy to navigate and explore.
  • Love all the different blog authors and their varying styles.
  • Every day, a practical tip or insight.   What's not to love?

Suggestion:

  • Get rid of that McLellan guy!

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

  1. Well thank you very much! The encouragement is appreciated! Yes, I realize I don’t include as many visuals as I should and I’ll keep that in mind. My normal blogging practice is to read other blogs via my news reader in the morning and then write a post or two before the day gets started. We are also trying to make photography a stronger focus in our business so hopefully more images that help tell the stories will be forthcoming.

  2. Especially if you emphasize the power of good photography in your business — you should walk your talk.

    Your content is great. As my blog coach Mike Sansone is always saying…be sure you build in some eye rest in every post. Photos, visuals, bullets — anything to break up the type.
