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.
