9 Blogs I Found on Blog Engage

Blogging Tips on Blog Engage

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.

1. 61 Easy And Free Ways To Drive Massive Quality Traffic To Your Blog
Notes: I have seen a lot of lists of ways to increase traffic to your blog, but this was one huge list I couldn’t pass up on. I voted this up, retweeted it

2. Beaten to the Tweet: Twitter Cybersquatters Have Hijacked Brands
Notes: Being a business owner I was pretty interested in seeing which large companies have been hit by Cybersquaters, you would be surprised by this list of companies. I voted this up on Blog Engage (11th voter) and also retweeted it on Twitter (10th retweet).

3. 10 Icon Search Engines
Notes: In addition to being addicted to business, blogging, WordPress plugins, SEO and customizing Thesis I am also addicted to checking out various icon packs, this will come in handy one day. I retweeted this post as well as voted it up on Blog Engage and left a comment on the blog.

4. How to Make Google Love Your Blog
Notes: I am constantly on the hut for learning news SEO tips and information, I couldn’t pass up on ways to make Google love my blog :) I retweeted this post as well as voted it up on Blog Engage and left a comment.

5. 10 Things You Need to Stop Tweeting About
Notes: Being a pretty heavy duty Twitter user myself I just couldn’t pass up on seeing what annoying things I do on Twitter that I should probably stop. It’s safe to say I just need to stop using Twitter all together, this was a funny post. Voted up and retweeted, comments were not open.

6. Blog Checklist Part I
Notes: I have a tremendous amount of readers on a daily basis that come through my blog looking for blogging tips, a lot of these bloggers newbie bloggers looking for basic getting started tips for new bloggers. I wanted to include this article because it’s put together simple and clean on a very nice blog, btw. I left a comment and voted it up on BE, there was no Twitter button so no retweet on this one.

7. The Most Common Things People Steal
Notes: I think it’s important as a blogger to take a break from your normal everyday reads and take in something new, as I was going through BE it was nice to come across something not so much “blog related”. I was RT number 9 as well as BE vote number 9 and I left the 21st comment.

8. List of RSS Directories to Submit Your Blog Feed
Notes: If it deals with getting potential traffic chances are I am going to wanna consider giving it a shot. This post received the triple treat.

9. 100 Top WordPress Tips
Notes: My addiction to WordPress and customizing WordPress so I can learn some new things and share them here makes it impossible for me to pass up a post like this. This is one of the biggest list of WordPress tips that I have seen in a very long time and the list is put together nicely with graphics as well as details about each plugin and tip. BE and commented on.

I ended up going through about 15 pages of the Blog Engage blog directory and had no problem finding blog posts that interested me enough to leave a comment, retweet and of course vote up on BE. I also ended up adding a few of the blogs above to my feed reader so I can stay in tune to what they have going on, I hope you found what I had going on somewhat useful. If you did take a moment to subscribe to my rss feed or become a fan on my Facebook Fan Page.

Might as well try to help others out somewhere along the way.

I’m really glad you actually took the time and posted your experience John. Many bloggers don’t know how to truly take advantage of our community and this is for sure one of the most productive ways.

This allows you to build relationships while at the same time increase your content within your rss feeder. Believe it or not but this is the exact method I sued to create blogengage and the community. I would comment on all the blogs submitted and then follow other links people left on their comments.

Don’t get me wrong it’s time consuming but the return on investment is simply amazing! It’s a must do for anyone looking to increase their blog traffic and readership.

This was a great article idea!

That’s a great list John! I’ve read the 100 wordpress tips, very interesting and helpful, I’ve dropped a comment too. Another is the 61 ways to drive traffic, quite common tips but interesting to read. All of them spent quite some times to collect the list, nice one. :-D

Great list. I read and voted on some of these already and I’ll try to get to them all very soon.

Maybe you can give me some pointers so that one of my posts will make it to your list one day (catchier titles perhaps).

Thanks this has been fun, I enjoy reading your blog.

Great post. I particularly like the Twitter blog as its such as new social media that its sometime difficult to know the best way to use it. Also, twitter can be what the people make it which is another reason for that blog being particularly useful.

Hi John,

wow, deciding to do a little reading tonight is going to keep me busy all week. I followed a link on Kristi’s blog over to your post, only to discover that you’ve got a bunch more links I might want/need to click on. And to top it all off, I’ve never heard of Blog Engage, but I’m always looking for good stuff to read … lol, if I only liked to write as much as read I’d be one successful blogger :-)

Great list of posts. It took a while to read them all. Most all were very worth the time. I really learned on the Making Google Love You Post. I hope they will love me.

The conversation on the Twitter/Brands post was really interesting, too. I think the brands who were asleep deserve to be left out. Let them get an id like Coke-Brand or something equally as lame.

Late again (about a year behind the pack) but thank you — never heard of blog engage (still in Beta after all this time) but looks like it will be useful. Now reading through your list of posts (looks like my reading list is headed towards infinity). Sean
