You know, if you don’t have a blog and have been thinking about starting one, or if you are blogging somewhere else and getting few (or no) hits, I highly recommend joining Blogivists. It’s easy to sign up, fun to choose your design template, and a breeze to start posting.
Blogivists offers four things you won’t find on a lot of other blog sites:
Instant Audience – If a blog post falls in the forest but nobody hears it, does it make a difference? Blogging can be a lonely pursuit when you first begin, but with Blogivists your blog will be added to the group directory on Day One. Also, the most recent Blogivists posts are jumped to the front page for all to see. Right from the start, my E!! blog got hits and comments galore – thanks to the support of the Blogivists community.
Instant Search Rankings – Because Blogivists is already ranked in Google and other search engines as well as on Technorati and other blog ranking sites, your blog will catch the attention of the web spiders and other bloggers. This means you’ll be elevated up the rankings much faster than if you’re operating alone. Every time your latest post pops up on the Blogivists front page or another Blogivist links to your blog, you earn rank and authority points.
For example, when I started my E!! blog in June 2008 I was ranked #5 million or so among active blogs on Technorati, yet today I am ranked at 220,559 which is top 5%. Also, if you Google “Elizabeth Crum” or “Nevada conservative blogs” my blog now comes up #1 on page one. Pretty amazing for someone who’s been blogging for less than 5 months!
Support – The Blogivists IT team is nice and very helpful. It’s easy to fill out an online support ticket, and you’ll get personal attention whenever you have questions or issues. Also there are Help pages and webinars to guide you along as you learn the blogropes.
Awards – Besides the $250 Blogivist of the Month award, there are the Sammies and other prizes available for bloggers who want to shoot for something big. It’s motivation to stay passionate and keep at it, which is really what it’s all about.
A reader reminds me: “Don’t forget about the email alerts, too. I wouldn’t have known about your blog had I of not been a subscriber to Blogivists.”
