News, but not the serious kind
Remember to tip your blogger, folks
Blog Guy, you’re an expert on social etiquette. Should I give a gift or a tip to my favorite bloggers at Christmas? Would they be offended because they’re professionals?
Offended? Of course not. After all, you tip other professionals like your dentist and congressman, don’t you?
Yes, that’s a good point. What sort of gifts do bloggers enjoy?
Gold is popular, and it even comes in vending machines now. Other nice gifts are luxury automobiles, designer luggage, home entertainment systems, Caribbean holidays and pretzels.
Oh! I could do pretzels!
Nice try. I already have enough of those.
What’s the proper amount to tip a blogger?
Generally it depends on how often they update their blog. If it’s every single day, like this one, and the blog helps lift you above your otherwise dreary, bleak, joyless existence, well…
I see what you’re saying. It’s difficult to put a price on that.
Yes. Difficult, but not impossible.
