Blogtipping — December ’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.

This month’s nods go to….

The Kiss Business Too is a very funny and very smart blog about business and doing it better by keeping it simple.

Things I love:

  • The humor in the posts.
  • Lots of outbound links, introducing us to other great blogs.
  • The writing style is very approachable and comfortable.


  • Add a search function so your readers can dig deeper into your content.

Young Entrepreneur was founded by two brothers, Matthew and Adam Toren. The focus is very tight — as the name suggests, entrepreneurs.  Within that framework though, they cover a wide range of topics.

Things I love:

  • The diversity of your posts/topics.
  • How you include other experts through interviews.
  • Nice use of multiple authors.


  • Maybe it’s just me and the fact that I am not that young anymore…but dang, your font is small!

Strategize is Ross Hollman’s blog on business strategizing.  But it actually spans a bit broader than that, covering many aspects of business.

Things I love:

  • Nice, clean layout.
  • Good use of visuals, video and examples.
  • Readers get a very good sense of you in every post.


  • How about using tools like MyBlogLog and The Good Blogs to build an even bigger community?

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