What separates blog engage from the rest?

Memberships, RSS, Blog Engage

I’ve owned Blog Engage now for over three years and one of the biggest beliefs I have is to do on to others socially what you would like them to do on to you.

Blog Engage has a very unique policy that requires all members of the community to Vote, Tweet, Stumble and Digg when they can. See this was the point of starting Blog Engage three years ago. I wanted to create an environment where bloggers could meet one another, socially share and benefit each other in the blogosphere.

Creating this environment hasn’t been the easiest task because if you haven’t noticed many people are only worried about their own success and don’t care about what others need or want. This exact statement is what makes Blog Engage different then all other social communities.

When submitting your content to the Blog Engage community make sure to visit some of the upcoming pages and vote for other bloggers. Engage with them and visit their blogging websites. Build relationships with these bloggers and they will turn into blog readers.

After reading this article will you take the time to vote and engage with other bloggers within our social community? Leave your feedback and let me know if you already do! I would love to hear your thoughts on our communities minimum expectations. Suggestion are always welcomed as well.

  1. I always try to vote other blogs and vist at least one or two blogs everytime I submit my own post.
    I feel if I expect others to vote me up and visit my blog, I best return the favour.
    It’s about give and take isn’t it.

      Hi Robert, I really appreciate that! It kills me to see so many of our great bloggers get stuck on the upcoming pages! We need more votes’ heck that’s the point of our community. Thanks for supporting the community and ti’s members.

    Brian,

    I just cannot read this article and leave without commenting. I discovered BE only recently and now it is my #1 priority for bloggers and #1 place where I hang out. Of course I do equally hang out on Twitter, but BE is something unique.

    And as you say, I must stress that I do not get that unique feel when I am at other places. BE is great. I am extremely glad that I found it!

    Cheers,
    Jane.

I love that you stuck around to comment it means a ton to me and I hope blog engage brings you all the success possible. I love blog engage and it’s managed to grow so well over the last three years! It’s been such a blast meeting everyone including yourself.

    Like your idea of Blog Engage. Just got an invite and joined.

    The only thing that’s a bit difficult is to find out how to do things like find members to connect with and so forth.

    About the only thing that’s absolutely clear is that if members don’t engage the way they should you terminate their membership.

    Am for instance not sure if I uploaded the correct Blog Engage Profile Badge? It’s at the bottom of the page, not sure why it ended up there. So please let me know if that’s correct by sending me a message. Thank you.

      Hello Catarina, first of all I thought I removed all that stuff… So sorry for the confusion. I woudl never terminate someone’s account unless they spammed our website. Could you kindly link me to where you read that? I also no longer require our member to have a blog engage badge. It’s only there if you want to help promote and build awareness about the community.

      I think because you are new I would suggest checking out some beginner videos I have done, http://www.blogengage.com/faq-en.php

      that’s a great place to get started! Also I’m on twitter, facebook and skype as bbrian017 I’m always open to conversations so ask anything you need.
