Blogtipping November 2006: Have You Met These 3 Bloggers?
Happy Blogtipping Day, everyone!

Blogtipping Day is the first day of each month.  To go blogtipping, simply publish a blog post where you identify three bloggers and give each one three compliments and one helpful tip.  You'll pleasantly surprise them while helping your readers discover blogs and blogging tips.

Blogtipping links:
* My October 2006 blogtipping post
* My blogtipping archives
* Technorati search for blogtipping (feed)

This month's blogtippees have all contributed to the new Fortune 500 Blog Project.

Blogtippee #1: Blogopreneur (feed) by Kian Ann Tan

1. Great voice.  Cheerful, upbeat, positive - Kian Ann leaves you feeling excited about blogging.  (Must be his age - same as mine!)

2. Lofty goals.  10 posts a week!  I'll match it: at least five here and five at Blog Chalk Talk.

3. Helpful screenshots.  Many of his posts include screenshots, making it "show and tell" (not just "tell").  How do you do it, Kian Ann?  (Without losing sleep, that is!)

I Love BlogtippingTip: Make the link to the comments section more prominent.  Currently it's just a tiny link at the bottom right of each post.

Bonus tip: Insert a byline under the headline of each post.  Have the byline link to your profile.

Blogtippee #2: Search Marketing Gurus (feed) by Li Evans and company

1. Organized links.  Recommended books, recommended websites, blogging resources ... it's all here, folks.

2. Technorati taggage.  I'm just a sucker for good taxonomy.  See all the tags at the end of each post (example).

3. Good humor.  "Ting-tang-walla-walla-bing-bang..."

Tip: Make your post headlines permalinks.

Small Yellow Blogtipping IconBlogtippee #3: Shop Talk (feed) by John Caddell

1. Expert analysis.  John's got experience and it shows in his writing.

2. Helpful translations.  John explains terms like "complementor relationship" and "soft power" for the uninitiated (like me).

3. Traffic growth.  Nice trend, John!  Learn from his referral log - where is your own blog getting traffic from?

Tip: Break up your text with some images.  Also, fix the "My Web Page" link on your Blogger profile page.

That's all for this month!  Please go blogtipping with me on December 1st!

Any feedback for my blogtippees?

What a nice thing to wake up to! Thank you Easton for the blogtipping of Search Maketing Gurus. I'm going to work on that tip today! :)

Hi, Easton,

Thanks very much for the mention, and for the tips. I'll act on those right away!

And thanks for this forum on corporate blogging. It's consistently informative and useful. I'm certain there'll be better corporate blogs as a result...

Best regards,

John
