Cow- . . . Er . . . Blogtipping

published this at 9:21 am

I Know Cowtipping

Where I grew up, some kids would go out cowtipping in the summer. They would drive out to 1-Mile Road or 2-Mile Road to find a farm where cows were sleeping, sneak up on a cow, and push it over. Then they’d run back to their cars laughing.

I didn’t do it. I’d like to say that was because I am a humane soul. I am a humane soul. That’s true, but that’s not the reason I didn’t do it. I didn’t do it, because I make a habit of not disturbing sleeping beings, especially those that are larger than I am. The risk is more than I care to take on.

But Blogtipping?

This morning when I went to check my links at Technorati, I saw one from Easton Ellsworth at KnowMoreMedia called It’s A Great Day For Blogtipping. Needless to say I was a bit concerned.

I stood up to look at my computer to make certain it was upright. Then I viewed my homepage to be sure that it wasn’t sideways. Whew! What a relief to see it looked fine. Those two things out of the way, I could then click the link without fear to find out what Easton had in store for me.

Blogtipping Easton Ellsworth Style is a great example of showing readers that you value them.

He’s right. It is a great for blogtipping. Will you tip a blog today?

    Thanks, Liz, for not finding me guilty of insanity! I knew you’d get the “cowtipping” semblance. Mike Sansone over at Converstations thinks he might do a little blogtipping every month – I think I will, too! It’s just a little way of boosting another blogger’s spirits and throwing them a helpful tidbit of advice.

    Maybe if others do some blogtipping, they can tag the post “blogtipping” and Technorati will build a nice little directory of blogtipping posts over time!

    I agree Easton. I’m going to join the Blogtipping adventure, too! I think it’s a great way to get some solid strength in the “Magic Middle, ” and maybe quell the fear of the link love revolution. As Mike Sigers says spring a “link leak.”

    smiles,
    Liz
