Well, it’s the first of the month, and I promised Easton Ellsworth that I would do some blog tipping, and I’ve gotta stick to my word. And since we’re only 11 days late for Papa’s birthday anniversary (and plus the fact that I’ve written so many link baiting headlines in the last two weeks I feel in need of a shower), I’ve dedicated this headline and blog tipping post to literary giant Ernest Hemingway (in case you didn’t notice).
Let’s get started, shall we?
Pay Per Click IQ by Brandon Hopkins:
1 – Very accessible writing style for PPC vets and newbies alike.
2 – Always looking to start a dialogue with readers, which creates a community feel to the blog.
3 – Quality tutorial posts that show Brandon is not shy about sharing what he knows.
Tip: Despite how much the topic is in the news lately thanks to click fraud, a lot of people are fairly in the dark about PPC. Why not write up “The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Pay Per Click Advertising”? Great link love will certainly follow, and it’ll keep me from having to write it.
Jamdo by Rob Wood:
1 – Nice Internet marketing resource blog with clear, informative articles.
2 – Great grasp of the more technical and business nuts and bolts of effective online marketing.
3 – No snake oil!
NoahBrier.com by Noah Brier:
1 – Great blog that often asks more questions than it gives answers, which is important since Noah understands the right questions to ask when it comes to new media.
2 – Awesome community-oriented blog layout that values the comments almost as highly as the original content.
3 – Extremely smart.
Tip: There’s a typo on your “About” page. But since you’re such a bright guy, I’m not going to tell you any more than that.
P.S. Wondering where the title for Hemingway’s (and therefore Metallica’s) For Whom the Bell Tolls comes from? Wonder no more:
The title is taken from “Meditation XVII” of Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions, a 1624 metaphysical poem by John Donne.
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were. Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
When you think about it, the sentiments expressed there sound a lot like why we do this blog and link thing, you know?
