Report: The Best of Blogtipping Day, June 2006
June 1, 2006 was the second monthly Blogtipping Day, and a good number of bloggers - I'd guess about fifteen or twenty - went blogtipping with me.  I used simple Technorati searches for blogtipping and "blog tipping" to track what they were doing, as well as similar searches using Ask.com's new blog search engine.

All of the blogtipping posts were fun to read, and many were extremely detailed.  I am sorry that I can't link to them all here, but it would simply take too much time.  I am grateful for the good examples of smart bloggers that I've found by following all the blogtippers and blogtippees.  The whole phenomenon is light and fun, but I've learned that it's also seriously wonderful in two major ways:

Lesson #1 - Blogtipping exemplifies the principles of conversation, sharing, deference and caring that good business bloggers should embrace.

Lesson #2 - Blogtipping not only enriches the blogtippee and blogtipper, but also those who come along and read its results.  I personally have learned a few new tricks and gained a few new ideas simply by reading what others have had to say about blogs they find interesting.

I find it interesting that the most common blogtip that blogtippers give is for their blogtippees to post more frequently.  (Earth to Easton: POST MORE FREQUENTLY!)  If content is king, then publishing frequency is its kingdom.

Here are the authors of five of my favorite blogtipping posts from June 1, 2006.  All are worthy bloggers, and some are new acquaintances of mine thanks to this blogtipping thread that now connects us:
Phil Gerbyshak
Joseph Hauckes
Ben Yoskovitz
Liz Thompson
Jesse Skinner

P.S. The Bloggers Blog (an awesome blog offering pithy blogging news) has also noticed blogtipping.  I can't recommend that feed more highly to you - the B'ers B really has its finger on the b'sphere's pulse.

Hey Easton,
It's always nice to get a compliment from the inventor...
Thanks,
Joe

Thanks for the mention Easton. I'm glad you enjoyed my Blogtipping post. I look forward to making a habit out of it.

"I find it interesting that the most common blogtip that blogtippers give is for their blogtippees to post more frequently. (Earth to Easton: POST MORE FREQUENTLY!) If content is king, then publishing frequency is its kingdom."

I think I'll substitute my own name there and print this out. I'm certainly blogging a lot more than I was a year ago (actually I just realized my first anniversary as a blogger passed last month!), but not as much as I'd like to. In my case it's difficult to find (okay, make) the time to network more with comments...but I'm learning to do that too.

The whole blogtipping concept is something that is helping me on both ends. Thank you, Easton, for coming up with, and putting the word out to everyone about, this great idea!

Thanks, Joe, Ben and Melonie for the kind comments.
