I was sitting around watching a Family Guy marathon when I decided I wanted to surf through Blog Engage to see what new blogs I might be able to network with, than I figured I might as well share my experience with you. I am going to write this post as I surf through the Blog Engage Upcoming Posts and the Blog Engage Best Blogs of the Week.
My gameplan as I get ready to go into this little project is to surf through the various areas of Blog Engage for blog posts that interest me, when I find a blog post that interests me I plan on checking out the blog that posted it. Once I visit the original blog post I will make my decision to vote the article up, comment on the blog, retweet it or all of the above.
After I am done voting up and sharing the post on social media and social networking sites I will than give some link juice to the webmaster that wrote the post by sharing the link to their article in this post, my blog is a Do Follow blog with a Google Page Rank 4 so it should give some nice juice. Let’s go.
