The very first time that I found out about BlogEngage.com was while visiting Karen Woodham’s Blazing Minds blog site. I kept seeing these ads for Blog site Engage on her site and the expression, “Blog site Engage,” alone, captured my attention. I want to engage, and to engage with other bloggers? I wondered.
Not long after, Karen had a contest and the prize was a Blog site Engage account. Ok, I was game. I suggest, all I needed to do was a few tweets and shares daily, right? Ridiculous me was brand-new to raffles and didn’t understand it was an illustration. So, after I had made sure that I was ahead, by all the points I gathered, sure that I would win, I was sad to find out I didn’t win the Blog site Engage subscription.
peering through the windows, like a kid looking at a sweet-shop. It struck me. Was I going to lose out on this opportunity simply due to the fact that I didn’t win it? Obviously not! So, I paid the low and affordable charge and got in into the blogging candy shop of relationships. In the beginning it was confusing, with numerous alternatives and uncertain where I was expected to go next. Brian Belfitt was there, via a tiny chat window, to help and respond to any concerns I had. I was connected.
Quickly after, I contacted Brian to update my plan. Then, after he had actually gone to the problem of pro-rating, I contacted him once again, to update again … and again.
I even presumed regarding find out how numerous interactions I required, daily, to claim the “Karma ranks” within BlogEngage.com to obtain to the top. Exactly what I discovered was that it wasn’t about the points, it was about the relationships I was developing as I did my day-to-day jobs on blogengage.com.
I’ve used the word sometimes: engage. That really is the name of the video game with blogengage.com and the main advantage, or, at least the one that is the most important to me, personally. Oh, you get some terrific shares, comments, ideas, brand-new blogs to read, therefore much more, but it is that engagement that sticks to an individual and draws them in for more. There are opportunities to share others’ posts and for them to share your posts. There are chances to connect an assisting hand and there are times when you are the recipient of a helping hand. That is community. That is what I was trying to find, and found, when signing up with Blog site Engage.
As an extension of the engagement, relationships were born. Enduring relationships. We link through other social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, BizSugar, LinkedIn. Oh, yeah, Blog site Engage helps you out there by offering profile fields for you to enter all of your social platform links. If there is one you have actually missed, submitting the Blog site Engage profile set-up will help jog your memory and give you concepts of other social platforms where you ought to have yourself establish and prepared.
As an outcome of Blog site Engage, I have satisfied some actually extraordinary people. I have actually satisfied people whom I cannot picture ever “unknowning.” I have also crossed paths with people that I have satisfied somewhere else, with that “Aha moment,” of “Oh, you are here too?!”
It resembles living in a village (as I would picture) where everybody understands each other, or at least knows of each other, and crossing paths in the regional grocery shop, the filling station, neighborhood functions, and having the ability to say, “Hey, how’s it going?” or “Got any brand-new posts you desire promoted?” Yes, that is the sort of community Blog site Engage fosters.
That stated, it is up to the people, the community, that consist of Blog site Engage. If you are loner … No issue. There is no pressure to engage. If you are a “individuals person,” like me, there is plenty of opportunity to get in touch with individuals within the Blog Engage platform, like the chat window, private messaging, talk about posts, voting, forums, and more, along with outside the Blog site Engage platform on each blogger’s own blog site.
With the useful dandy Blog Engage voting button, if you have actually lost your method and forgotten where the Blog site Engage tab on your internet browser went, no problem, click the ballot button on the Blog Engage member’s post, on their own blog, and you have actually chosen their post on Blog Engage.
More than that, you have opportunities, built-in, within the Blog Engage web site, to share the posts and to link through to the blogs and share and remark. This not only provides the advantage of getting your content shared, but provides you quality material to share, also, through your social media accounts. And, you are developing relationships. A perk is that Blog site Engage utilizes the popular CommentLuv Premium plugin. For those of you familiar with CLP, you understand it is an essential tool to constructing relationships in between blog sites, allowing a DoFollow link back to your blog site (in some cases after a required 3 authorized remarks) for each blog remark you leave on a getting involved blog site. For those of you who are not acquainted with CLP, you really have to check it out. So, for CLP-luvvers, make note of that Blog Engage is a DoFollow CLP blog site. Brian has been kind enough to put together a list of blogs belonging to Blog Engage members that are also CLP blog sites with this DoFollow advantage.
The community at Blog site Engage is varied, allowing you to find others who are interested in your niche, as well as those who are in other specific niches. There is something for everybody. It is specifically fun to discover a blog writer in your specific niche who likewise has another blog in a various niche. This offers you an opportunity to obtain to understand the blogger in a depth that is much deeper than simply one blog site. You see, Blog Engage assists you to see that, also, and not just one isolated blog site, with one unknown isolated blog writer. Another thing that I truly like is that it is global. I know. The internet is international. But, it is still fun to fulfill people from various parts of the world, and various cultures and learn more about them and find out where we all have similarities. I mean, at the least, we are all thinking about blogging, right?
The Sky Is The Limitation
Blog Engage is what you make it. If you are anti-social and do not desire anyone sharing your content, do not desire Facebook buddies or retweets on Twitter, then potentially Blog Engage is not for you. Then, if that is the case you probably would not be reading this short article right now.
If you want to get social, a minimum of a little bit, and desire to discover some brand-new buddies, associates, maybe even partners, and you like it when individuals provide you those “votes of confidence” in addition to sharing of your content, then you actually require to have a look at BlogEngage.com for yourself, instead of staring at it like a kid through the windows of a candy shop.
