- Easy-to-read, well-designed, always-informative (remembering the rule of three)
- The blog (a conversational tool) is a high priority, appearing at the top of the company web site.
- Use of bullets and lists make longer posts easy to read.
Tip: Though it may be late in the game, Categories could act as a Table of Contents. Granted, most of the posts align with the tagline of employee engagement, but it could help navigating some of the golden posts of yesterday.
BlogTip #2: Got Boondoggle?
Author: Mike Wroblewski
- Important subject matter (Lean Manufacturing). In Iowa, some say we have a dying manufacturing industry. I disagree. Mike’s site is one I can point to often as an informational resource – and a blogging resource
- Various sizes in post length. Just like a conversation offline. Sometimes we simply want to make a point. Sometimes we want to tell a story. Mike does both well.
- Generous linkage to other blogs
Tip: Again, Categories. Though this is tougher with Blogger as a platform. Here’s a link I’ve found helpful when working with Blogger and Categories.
BlogTip #3: Entrepreneurial Wordsmith
Author: Donyell Nelson
- I love this design. Not just because it’s easy and readable – but it’s published with Blogger. High-Five to your team.
- Generous knowledge-sharing. Thanks for the tips and how-to articles
- Well-integrated blog within the company web site.
t I’m tempted to say…Categories…I think that goes without saying by now. So let me suggest linking to other blogs often. This will introduce more people to your great work.
Why do we go BlogTipping?
- As part of the audience, you share feedback with the author.
- As the author, you find out what your audience likes/would like.
- As fellow blogtippers, we can be introduced to different blogs.
- By looking at other blogs and blogtippings, we can learn from each other.
- It’s a great way to introduce your audience to other blogs.
- It’s a great way to introduce your site to other bloggers.
And thanks to those who BlogTipped me today (Thank You!):
- Liz at Successful Blog, suggests I have too much going on, it’s hard to keep focus. Point taken and I agree. Once again, an angel told me.
- Tom at BusinessBlogHive, suggests I share some of the stories of successes and failures. Good idea, though I’m cautious for a few reasons (especially regarding the failures – and there have been quite a few). Worth looking into – we can all learn from these, right?
