Another month has come and gone. It's time for that ritual of the spreading of the blogging link leak virus - Blogtipping Day.
Tippee #1: Carolyn Manning's Living Spiritually is a personal development blog that I've been reading for the past couple of months. She has quickly become a part of the blogging community.
1 - You show a practical approach to personal growth that comes out in clear writing. Your voice comes through.
2 - I love the feedbutton you put on the site. It makes good use of space, and makes it easy to subscribe with the most common feed readers.
3 - Thank you, thank you, thank you for the new theme. It is so much easier to read than the old one.
Tip - We're patiently waiting for your transfer to Wordpress .;-)
Flash Update: Carolyn has moved to Thoughtsphilosophies.com. A rousing cheer from all!
Tippee #2:Trevor Hampel's Trevor's Writing. Trevor's is one of the first blogs I learned about when I entered the blogging world. Here he gifts us with his poetry, writing tips, and ideas for our own stories.
1 - I like the clean design on your theme. I'm not distracted from what you have to say.
2 - You post frequently and regularly. I always have something to look forward to reading.
3 - Thank you for inviting us into your life with your stories of your acceptances and rejections in getting published. You show us that if we put in the work to polish our craft, there are commercial outlets for that work.
Tip - If you moved your subscription links further up the page it may help increase the number of subscribers you have.
Tippee #3: Tony D. Clark's Success from the Nest. Tony is an entrepeneurial dad. Success from the Nest is devoted to everyone who wants to work from home and make more time for their family. Here he blogs, illustrates, and podcasts - a classic triple threat.
1 - I like your design. I love your artwork. It's always funny and apropos.
2 - You keep your focus. You cover your all aspects of your subject, as a glance at your categories shows, but they always come back to your core subject.
3 - You make your points clearly and without excess verbosity. Your posts often have that sense of inevitability they say good writing should have.
Tip - An option to subscribe to receive an email feed is something to think about. About 1 in 6 of my subscribers have chosen it instead of rss.
That's it for this month. Carolyn, Trevor, Tony - thank you for what you do for us. Everyone else, if you haven't seen these blogs, take a look. See you next month for another blogtipping!
