Blog Tipping

June 1st, 2006

Joe at the Working at Home on the Internet blog just blog-tipped me, so I thought I'd pass on the Link Love. The idea of Blog Tipping is that on the first of the month, you pick three blogs you read and offer 3 compliments and 1 tip. So here goes.


  1. I love that you've gone back to drawing cartoons full force. It's great to see people doing what they love.
  2. Your Microbrand concept is an inspiration to people everywhere who are trying to understand and find their place in this Internet-based economy.
  3. I'm really impressed with your work for Stormhoek. Even though you're alone on the frontier of marketing you're doing a great job.

tip: Perhaps it's a result of your busy schedule, but I'd like to see more longer posts with more of your thoughts and less links now and then.

Friendly Bit

  1. While no other web dev blogs seem to be discussing real, tangible web development concepts, yours just keeps on sticking to the point. That's a real inspiration for me.
  2. Your topics always give me something I can use right away, change the way I look at something, or give me something I know I'll be able to use in the future.
  3. I love how simple and straightforward your design is, with just a few categories and comments along the side.

tip: This is hard. I'd love it if you posted more often, but not if this degrades the quality of your post. Otherwise, just keep doin' what you're doin'.


  1. Your topics are always very interesting, often addressing a topic in a new way that just isn't done often enough.
  2. You always have a great sense of humour (even if some of your readers don't understand it).
  3. Your design is really great, just barely bordering on Web 2.0 without crossing over. :)

tip: Start posting again! Two in the past three months?! You used to be almost daily!

Okay, now you all have to pass the link love on.

1. I like that your posts are diverse, covering purely technical issues to social complaints
2. I like that you explain concepts thoroughly and correctly, ie. describing what "AJAX" is for the layperson
3. I like your posting frequency
tip: You're missing an 'h' as in 'http' in your RSS feeds, breaking the permalinks back to your stories

Eek! Thanks for the tip and compliments, Jesse.

Now I got a tip for you - your rss.xml gives a 404, and your atom.xml hasn't been updated in 5 months so I didn't even know you've been posting. But now I've caught up again. :)

Hey Jesse,
That's the way to pass on the link love, leak a link or blog tip...

Thanks Jesse! It's comments like yours that keeps me going. I'll try to post more often but I'm now in the process of writing my major thesis and looking for a job so those things have to go before everything else.

I have a lot of topics to write about if I only got the time, you should see the list of things ;) But summer is coming and with that some free time to write more.

This blog tipping is a nice idea, all the best things of memes focusing on what memes are all about, link love ;)

No worries, Emil. I'm sure you have some really amazing stuff around the corner, especially once school is all done. I'm really looking forward to it. We can wait :)
