Blogtipping Day!

Tuesday, May 1, 2007Filed Under Crafts, Blogtipping |

It’s Blogtipping Day! And it’s also the first anniversary of Blogtipping! The first monthly Blogtipping Day was exactly one year ago today. Time flies when you’re surprising other bloggers with free praise and blogging tips!

I Love Blogtippng SignBlogtipping Definition: Blogtipping is where you publish a blog post in which you link to three unsuspecting blogs and offer three compliments and/or one helpful tip to each blogger. (Or adapt those numbers to your own preferences; the principle of selflessness is what matters most here.) Blogtipping is a refreshing and useful surprise that can start a blogger’s month with a huge smile!

The first calendar day of each month is a new Blogtipping Day. Who will you sneak up behind and tip next time?

I plan to surprise three bloggers on the first calendar day of each month and offer each one three items of praise. The idea behind blogtipping is to give a tip as well, but I’m still very new to blogging myself and will hold off on the tipping and just give praise this month.

Since the purpose of blogtipping is simply to help and encourage other bloggers, please feel free to blogtip whenever, whomever and however you wish.

So, on to my list!

Blogtippee 1: Craft Blog - Stitching the Night Away

1. Wow, what a fantastic blog! It’s been around for over a year now and is chock full of fantastic crafts! I could click on every category and find tons of projects I’d like to try!

2. Filled with pictures! I love seeing pictures on blogs. Great, great job!

3. I applaud you for all the Charity posts! I especially like the Relay for Life ribbon. As the mother of a child who is a cancer survivor, this one hits home…. Great job!

Blogtippee 2: I Love Crafts & Craft Blogs

1. Wow, this blog has TONS of information on it! If I’m looking for any kind of craft blog, I’m sure I could find it here!
