I saw a great post over at Digital Media Minute titled "Top 6 Ways to Tip Your Favorite Blogger"

  1. Click their "dontate" buttons
  2. Buy them an item from their Amazon Wishlist
  3. Send them an iTunes Gift Certificate
  4. Get them a Flickr Pro Account
  5. Buy something for yourself through their affiliate advertisers
  6. Send them an E-Card

Read the post for details on each item. Really good suggestions!

Cathy suggests a different, less materialistic, approach.

[…] If someone is lurking around in the shadows, wouldn’t jumping out and yelling “I’m here” just be scary? Wouldn’t it be nicer to make a comment that somehow applies to a recent blog post? Doug recently posted a weasley (sorry, Ron) list of things you can do to make your favorite blog writers feel appreciated. I disagree. I propose the following instead: 1. Leave a comment related to something they post 2. Make a post on your own blog that agrees or disagrees (politely) with one of their opinions 3. Laugh when they’re funny, groan when they’re not and kick them in the pants when they are wallowing in self pity. Bloggers don’t expect all commenters to be sycophantic suck-ups. 4. Make comments about their flickr pictures. 5. Keep updating your own blog. You are important, too.
