A few weeks ago I talked about the 3 C's of my blogging success, and in that post I listed Blog Engage as the top community for bloggers to join, and I also discussed the importance of making connections and collaborations. As a member of Blog Engage, doors were opened for me and I was able to hone my blogging skills and build a level of confidence that every new blogger strives to attain.
What is Blog Engage?
The whole concept behind Blog Engage is nothing short of shear genius. Being on the site is like being on common-ground. It's a place where you can feel welcome and comfortable enough to share even your newbie blog posts with others. All in all, Blog Engage exposes you to a ready-made audience of your peers and mentors, who are just waiting to consume your content; and possibly even give it their stamp of approval.
Once you settle in, you'll quickly discover that you too are empowered to approve, comment, read, learn, share, vote, chat, collaborate, teach, connect, blog….and more!
Earlier this week, I got an email from a new Facebook friend. I'm not going to share his name without getting an ok from him, but here's what he said in the email
I recently saw a comment you left on ducttapemarketing where you said that Blog Engage has been good for article promotion. I would love to hear about your experience with Blog Engage.
Here's an excerpt from my response:
My experience with Blog Engage has been nothing but positive. I've been using Blog Engage since I started blogging over 2 years ago and here's a summary of how it's benefited me:
- Getting blog traffic
- Making strong connections with other bloggers
- Finding great content to read
- Generating backlinks from a PR5 site
- Winning contest prize money!!
Brian is always coming up with new ways for us to engage with each other and interact. I think he sits up at night trying to find ways to make the site better. I just joked with him this morning that every day this week he added a new feature to the site… Blog Engage also has the RSS service which makes it easy to submit all of your blog articles without any extra effort on your part. I have the affiliate banners on my blog if you want to find out more, but I'm not trying to send you to my blog just to click links. I'm very sincere when I say, Blog Engage put me on the map and I don't say that because I'm on staff. It's the other way around – I'm on staff because I believe in the site.
Get in the spotlight with Blog Engage
Blog Engage can be used to promote special events or contests you're in.
The community has grown tremendously and at this point a small registration fee is required of new members, that is more than worth it. Guest posting at BE in just another one of rewarding benefits that put you in the spotlight; here's a list of my guest posts at Blog Engage. If you're a member already, you know just what I'm talking about, so please share your Blog Engage story here in the comments.
