As you know, I am very new to this blogging thing. I did not know any of the ‘lingo’ when I first started my blog. I learned very quickly that there are tools out there and huge communities of people…just like me.
So I decided to sign up for as many communities I could find. As you can see on my sidebar, there are several different blog communities I belong to, but I have to say that BlogCatalog is my favorite.
Why? Well, several reasons. First, since I am new to this whole thing…I need something easy. BlogCatalog makes it so easy! The site is extremely user friendly…even I can figure it out. Being a social person, I enjoy the fact that this community has a discussion forum. You can actually talk right to your fellow bloggers, without going to each and every blog. You can post messages and reach tons of bloggers all at once. Great networking idea….I also like the fact that with the tools on BlogCatalog, it makes it possible for a member to organize an event like the one I am participating in today! The idea was Monwea’s and it’s called a MassBuzz!
Many of us are participating today by joining together and writing about Blogcatalog. Not only does this help BlogCatalog, but it helps get others interested in new blogs! The fact that BlogCatalog also has many tags and catagories andhas so many members in one spot means that I can find so many other like minded bloggers all in one place. It makes it easy to correspond and find new blogs to follow. I know that if it’s easy for me to do that, than for new people searching for certain types of blogs to read…it has to be easy for them too. I love the "snapshot’ of each blog that appears on the overview page…gives you a preview of what the blog looks like. I also appreciate the fact took 2 months to decline my membership. Other’s can charge fees for their listings..this one is free! I am proud and excited to belong to such a great community of bloggers.
Won’t you log on to BlogCatalog today and read some of the marvelous, creative and informative blogs you have been missing!
