Interact With Other Bloggers On Blog Engage The Real Social Bookmarking Site

Just the other day I was reading a post titled 50 Social Bookmarking Sites. What Are The Top 5-10 Most Popular? The intention of the post was to get the commentators opinion on the subject, so that the author could make up his mind as to which ones to include when he installs his latest social bookmarking plugin.

I was the only one that mentioned Blog Engage and I find that quite surprising. You see, there is one thing that sets Blog Engage apart from most of the other bookmarking sites. Let me quote you an important portion of the Blog Engage FAQ.

Blog Engage, allows you to submit your Blog Article(s) that will be reviewed by all and will be promoted, based on popularity, to the main page. When a user submits a new Blog Article(s) it will be placed in the “upcoming blog ” area until it gains sufficient votes to be promoted to the main page.

The ideal of Blog Engage is to promote interaction between bloggers by “Engaging” with each other’s blogs. Interaction that builds up quality comments and interactive discussions!

Can you see the main difference? Most of the other popular sites actually frown on you submitting your own post! Some will even penalize you or cancel your account, I know because I had it done to me. Not Blog Engage as Brian, the owner, wants you to submit those posts that you think are worthy to be appraised by your blogging peers. Naturally you can also submit posts from other bloggers that you want to share with the rest of the blogosphere.

Out of all the sites that I am a member of I can honestly say that Blog Engage is my favorite and the one that I use over and above all the others put together. I have even installed the WordPress plugin so that I can display it’s voting button on all my posts.

Another important point is that Brian is constantly scrutinizing the site to make sure that all submitted content is of of good quality and that no-one spams the site. Don’t be surprised if he actually votes on your post either or if he actually visits your blog and leaves a comment as he is well known for leaving his personal touch.

Not a member yet? It’s really easy to join, just vote on this post.

  1. Blog Engage is a great Digglike. The incredible effort and time the owner is giving into his project shows and makes Blog Engage alive and fun to use.
    There are many great bloggers i discovered at this place. +1 Brian

    It’s nice to see others like and appreciate Blog Engage the way I do.

  2. Thanks Pablo. I figured that after all the good work Brian has put into Blog Engage the very least I could do to show my appreciation is to do a post about it.

  3. With the exception of StumbleUpon, Blog Engage is the only “Digg-like” site I use daily.

    Geoserv´s Last blog post..NewsDots and FAQPAL get overhauled

    1. Yup.. I second that.

  4. I don’t even use Stumbleupon daily, and I reckon as Blog Engage get’s bigger, it can only get better.


  5. Twitter:
    First, Sire, you also now have that Tweet My Blog thing at the very top of your blog; how wild! It must do that automatically; I’m going to have to think about that one for a bit.

    Second, I’m going to have to check out this Blog Engage thing, because it sounds pretty good. Delicious allows you to post your own blogs also, though, so I already do it there, but I’ve always wondered how anyone finds it. But where on here is it showing, or is that the stars rating thing you have?

    1. I have the Blog Engage badge displayed at the top left of my post but you can configure it to display in various positions of your post.

      As for Tweet My Blog Thing all I can say is I TOLD YOU SO! It has to be related to the actual plugin. Gee, you would have thought that they could have told us about it.


      1. Twitter:
        For sure. It’s not always there, as it’s not there right now, but that’s really freaky and odd. Course, I’m wondering how I’ll get paid; guess I’ll need to go to the site to check it out.

      2. Twitter:
        First, I don’t see the Tweet My Blog banner; it must be a random thing.

        Second, I have to say that Blog Engage confused me, and I don’t confuse easily. I wasn’t sure what to do. I clicked on one of your posts, but after that I just didn’t get it.

        1. What’s to get? Once a member you just submit your posts and the site takes care of the rest. I also browse some of the other submissions which have lead me to some pretty interesting articles.

          As for the Tweet MY Blog, I agree it does only come up sporadically.

          1. No Biggie Mitch, you just click on the ‘Submit Tab’ at the top of the site and then it takes you through step by step.

          2. Once you submit your post it goes into the up and coming section for all to see. It doesn’t become published until you have received 4 or five votes, not sure which, which gives it even more exposure.

          3. That’s it, in a nutshell. Which post/blog did you submit?

          5. Twitter:
            Ah, I see, so it’s not up to me to publish, it’s up to visitors who click on the arrows whether it gets published. Well, I hope some of those folks take the time to peruse them.

          6. I think I commented on that post. I will head on over to Blog Engage and look for it.

  6. Sire,

    How can I say thank you enough! Not only are you an active member at blog engage but you’re also always looking for ways to help and today it was via a promotional article at your own blog!

    I send a big thank you for everything you have done to help make blog engage a success! I’ve been following you as a blogger now for almost a year and your knowledge has grown tremendously. I’m talking when you were starting over at a loadofbullsht and now to the new wassupblog.

    I think the coolest thing about blog engage is the new friends I made! Sure some don’t turn into friends but the majority do and become friends like you and I.

    It’s a pleasure knowing you and let us both be successful in what we do in life and enjoy every minute of it!

    Thanks again,

    Brian

    P.S Stumbled, Engaged, Dugg, and Buzzed… on my way now!

    bbrian017´s Last blog post..Increase your blog traffic, Increase your comments

  7. Think nothing of it Brian as I get so much out of Blog Engage this post is the least I could do to show my appreciation. I just hope it leads to some new members for you.

  8. Too right John, too bad more people are not making use of it.

  9. Blog Engage seems like a great site to get quality feedback and discussion on your blog. No spamming is a breath of fresh air.
