Blogtipping for March 1

By Char

BlogtippingIt’s March 1 and that means it is time to do some blogtipping! If you’ve never played before, the original idea is to pick three blogs that you enjoyed this month and let us know who they are. Tell us three things that you like about the blog, and one constructive tip to help the blogger take the blog to the next level. However, I am doing my own thing this month! For more about blogtipping, check in with Easton at Business Blogwire.

My picks this month:

  • Healthy Web Design by Dawud Miracle – Dawud is in a similar situation to me. He has been designing web sites for 10 years and now finds himself with an identity crisis. After all these years, our level of expertise and interests have created a new challenge. Web site design is only a small part of what we do. I find myself drawn to Dawud’s site for its clean design, logical navigation, and because he is writing about topics that I am wrangling with, too.
  • Bob Glaza at One Reader At A Time – Bob’s blog is a refreshing mix of commentary, education and networking. You know his site has lots to offer, he recently earned his SOB badge from Successful Blog.
  • Blogger Design – This blog is full of great information for new and experienced bloggers. I really like the recent post on the Pros and Cons of WordPress 2.1. I must say I really like the layout of this one too. The three column design with just the right color combination works so well.

I hope you enjoy discovering some new blogs this month! For some other great blogs, check out who I have tipped in the past.



Hi Char. Thanks for tipping me. Just a note…I spell my name Dawud.


Dawud – my deepest apologies on the misspelling! Obviously I needed to finish my morning cup of coffee before posting!


Great choices!

Hope you have a terrific day!


awwww Char – what a nice way to greet March! Thank you for the tip! And the terrific post idea!
Can I steal that sign? :)

Always amazed at how many new blogs I discover through this meme. Great job, Char!
