Engage Your Blog

Retweet This Page

I hope everyone had an outstanding Thanksgiving holiday! The holiday shopping season has officially begun.  Christmas sure is coming up fast!  Sales have picked up a bit in Your Pet Store With More as well which is always a pleasure to see.

I’ve been pretty busy posting new products on the website and finding new resources to help us all better our business.

I’ve been using the Google blog finder to find interesting blogs and it has led to reading a lot of great blogs AND getting great resources from those blogs.  The most recent is from Ms. Ileane Speaks.  I really can’t say enough about this blog.  She always has great resources and even does video demos.  The most recent find by Ileane was Blog Engage.  This is a community of bloggers.  A great place to find great blogs.  How does it work?

  1. I joined last night, added one article link and already increased my blog hits today.  What you do is one by one submit your blog articles by entering a brief description and the URL for the article.
  2. People will click on your blog link if your description entices them to do so.  The link will open in a new window.
  3. When the person is done reading the article your hope is that they vote for you and/or leave a comment.  Comments are great in terms of increasing your presence on the internet.
  4. Read and comment on others blog articles.  This will help you find other resources that may benefit your business, allow you to get a meaningful links out there for your website, and help others that may in turn reciprocate.

There are some other notable features:

  1. Click on the Story tab at the top of any page and you’ll receive a list of the most popular tags.  There you can choose a topic you’d like to check out.  I used this feature because I wanted to see what was out there.  Maybe something I hadn’t thought to look for but would love to read about.
  2. You can also enter a search phrase in the search box if there is a particular topic you know you want to read about.
  3. The Live Feeds tab shows you the new blogs being submitted.  So if you’d like to review more current submissions that would be the place to stop.
  4. Your Groups allows you to join like minded groups to share ideas with.
  5. There is a Make Money tab but to be honest with you I’m not interested in that tab so you’ll have to check that out if you want to make money with your blog.
  6. Cool Sites tab… you can add your site here.  Just need to follow three really easy steps.

Of course I can’t mention all of the features here, but I hope I’ve made enough points for you to give Blog Engage a try.

    Thanks so much for blogging about us. All the promotion we can get we’ll take especially seeing as I’m putting all my money into running the servers I don’t have a marketing budget at all. I’m glad you’re enjoying the community and look forward to your future participation.

    Blog engage is a great place for blogger to do just that, engage with each other. There are so many other “Blog Aggregators” around, but all they do is aggregate you posts. Nobody interacts. They are merely automatic posting devices.
    What I like about Blogengage, is that you are encourage to take part in the community, support other bloggers, interact with them.
    I think it will make a mark for itself in the blogosphere
