What's blogtipping? It's where you forget yourself for a few minutes and think about another blogger. It's a win-win. All you do is this: Say three nice things and offer one simple tip.
Still confused? Here's an example: "Hey Johnny, I like your shoes, your hair and your teeth - maybe you could also put on some deodorant!" See, you've already done this sort of thing your whole life. Why should your blog stay so stiff and serious that you can't go blogtipping once in a while?
So, on Monday, May 1st, please choose three of your favorite bloggers - really, anyone you want to encourage - and give each one a good blogtipping. Please tag the post with the "blogtipping" tag so Mama Technorati can keep a growing record of our collective forays into blogtipping..
I went blogtipping yesterday and Liz Strauss, Jeremiah Owyang, Trevor Cook, Mike Sigers and Mike Sansone all liked the idea. It's much safer than cowtipping, by the way, and you won't get in trouble for doing it publicly. Shouldn't, anyway.
Remember: From small things come great things.
P.S. There are no prizes for blogtipping and no penalties for not blogtipping - only sweet satisfaction for the willing and dark remorse for the recalcitrant. (I couldn't resist.)
