I’m going to be boring and post this on all of my blogs. As we approach the second birthday of ExposeYourblog!, we’ve re-launched both the surfing and referral contests. All you need to do to win credits surfing is to be amongst the top five surfers of the day. Credits awarded are based on the percentage of blogs surfed, so the more you surf the more you can win – daily and weekly! The referral contest means that you can win credits for referring more members than anyone else daily and weekly. New members must activate their account by surfing and adding their blog.
To get links, go to your “Tools” page and click on “My Downline”, scroll down and you’ll find banners and links that you can use to promote ExposeYourBlog!. Or you could write a post about why you enjoy surfing on EYB! and include a link in your post – just like I have.
Don and I are really proud of the blogs on EYB! There are blogs to suit all tastes and you’ll find excellent writing, art and pictures as well as members who interact with each other. We’re building a very special blogging community and hopefully members feel as it EYB! Is being run by real people who care about their members – which is true.
As always Don and I can be contacted via a PM in the forums (don = “Admin”, to contact me “Anji”), via a support ticket or email; firstname.lastname@example.org . We’d love to hear from you, feedback and ideas are always useful.
I can’t believe that I haven’t posted about EYB! since November. Despite three sets of holidays since then (Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year) surfing has been going well. The average daily surf is slowly creeping upwards. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to that statistic!
In my last ExposeYourBlog! post I was talking about interesting blogs that I’ve discovered while surfing. This time I’d like to mention Mobile Home Living. Like many people, I had my ideas as to what the inside of a mobile home would look like. I knew that they had more space than a caravan, as my brother lived in one many years ago. Some of the interiors featured on the blog are incredible!
You never know what you might find next on ExposeYourBlog!
I’ve just started a new thread in the the General Chatter section in the forum, ‘Blogs that have surprised me’. Tell us about interesting blogs that you’ve come across on EYB!.
To start the ball rolling I’ve already written about a blog that I found surprisingly interesting to read. If you want to know which one it was… look in the forum!
I think that I can safely say that Don, Touwe and I are very proud of ExposeYourBlog! We’re very keen to grow the membership in order to get member’s blogs seen by a wider and wider audience. One of the ways in which I do this is by leaving a link to EYB! whenever I leave a comment. This means that other commenters see the link and hopefully check us out. I also do this when I see other blogs I come across elsewhere, especially if I think they might be interested in ExposeYourBlog!. I don’t really consider this as spamming, perhaps it is. I’ve noticed that sometimes comments I’ve made that have been held in moderation never get published. I’d like to apologise if my leaving a link causes offense. My intentions are sincere.
If you have a Blogger blog the best format for comments is the pop up one. This is the only pop up we allow on EYB!. Unfortunately the other comment formats either break frames or leave the viewer looking at a blank page. Aha! That explains why you weren’t getting many comments from EYB! Members.
I’ve made a thread in the forum about how to change your comment format, if you need it.
It’s nice to be snug and warm during the long dark winter evenings. Occasionally I work through the evening (one of the joys of self employment – I don’t mind). I enjoy watching TV, when there is something worth watching. Sometimes Rob and I choose a film to watch together, unfortunately we often fall asleep and wake up just as the credits are rolling.
You know what I’m leading up to? What could be better than an evening surfing and checking out your blogging friends? I’m sure that, like myself, members of ExposeYourBlog! look out for their favourite blogs while surfing. With your help I’d like to make EYB! even bigger and better. I worked out that if every member introduced at least one friend to EYB! We’d double the pleasure (I was good at maths at school, can’t you tell?). What’s more, the more your friend surfs the more credits you earn. Just pass them the link you’ll find under Downline on the tools page. It’s got your membership number included!
If you have any problems regarding ExposeYourBlog! or suggestions, please feel free to contact me ‘Anji’ or Don, ‘Admin’ through the EYB! forums or via a PM, or you can leave a comment here. We’d love to hear from you.
I thought I’d use this post to give new members and those that haven’t visited there yet, an idea of what they can find in the Forums.Firstly you will find information and announcements from the administration: How to, rules, contact information and so on.
In the main member’s area there are places where you can introduce yourself to other members and throw your blog to the lions (not really – we’re very kind here at EYB!). If you have ideas that would improve the running of ExposeYourBlog! or blogging tips to share with other members, the forum is the place to go. We also have threads on WordPress, Blogger, Surf and Chat, and even Selling Online. Not only can you find information there, you can ask questions or offer your own ideas and tips.
Perhaps your blog has been denied or banned. We can help you sort out the problem through the forum.
“It’s a Small World” is a thread where you can post up and coming events in your area – other bloggers could be interested too. You might even meet up with them! Why not post about traditions in your country?
You’ll need to join the forum separately from the main site. It’s very easy to do, click on registration (top right hand corner) and the questions will guide you through…
I almost forgot to mention that once you have joined the forums, it’s possible to sent PMs (Private Messages) to other forum members as long as you know their user name. You can also contact me; Anji or Don; Admin via a PM.
