Mike, the issue I have with the methods you have pictured is your glue area, I presume you intend them to be glued, is still primarily end grain. Granted, you have substantially increased the area, but not the quality of the joint.
With c-mans pictured approach, the glue area is predominantly long grain which, IMHO, will provide a much stronger glue joint. I, personally, use half lap or scarf joints on lumber you have pictured.
