All I Want for Christmas is Your Blog Engage Votes

  • Sharebar

All I Want for Christmas is Your Blog Engage VoteYou might have noticed that I have been talking a lot about the Blog Engage community.  I’m excited about being part of this community because it is just that – a community.

Are you looking to receive more traffic, gain more exposure, and build relationships with other bloggers?  Blog Engage provides an environment to make all of this happen.

You will find that other bloggers will actually go out of their way to help your blog become successful.  That is the purpose for this post.  I need your help to make this happen for some great Go Givers.

How Can I Help?

Don’t worry.  This won’t cost you a dime, but it will take a few minutes of your time.  As a fellow blogger, I guarantee that you will reap greater benefits in return than the effort required to sow this seed.

All that I am asking from you is that you cast a vote for the unpublished blogs of the Go Givers below. It’s a simple process that will take about 30 seconds to 1 minute for most of these bloggers.

Just click on the link I’ve provided to their Blog Engage unpublished stories.  Once there, go down the list and click on the vote icon for each of their blog posts.

Why Didn’t These Posts Get Published?

That’s a great question.  These are all great quality bloggers.  It may be that they submitted at a time when there where many submissions so their post got buried a few pages deep quickly.

I have several submissions that received great comments and response, but did not get enough votes to be published because I didn’t have my vote button displayed.  Some of these blog posts didn’t either.

I think the main reason is that these people are so busy helping others that they forget to promote their own blog posts at times.

Who are These Go Givers?

There are many great bloggers that are Go Givers in the Blog Engage community.  I picked the following five because they had several posts that have 5 or 6 votes already, but just needed a little help to get to the 7 votes required to get published.

brandonacox Brandon Cox (Vote on Brandon’s Unpublished Posts)

WinWith1Win With 1 (Vote on Alison’s Unpublished Posts)

robertbraveryRobert Bravery (Vote on Robert’s Unpublished Posts)

BlazingMindsBlazing Minds (Vote on Karen’s Unpublished Posts)

tycoonbloggerTycoon Blogger (Vote on Dan’s Unpublished Posts)

Note: If you don’t see anything to vote for when you click the link that means others have voted and it has become published.

It should take less than 5 minutes to help all of these bloggers out with your vote.

Thank You for Helping

Thank you for helping out by voting for these posts.  Hopefully, all of these posts will have been published before Christmas.  What a great gift for a blogger!

If you are feeling particularly generous, I have some posts that could use a vote or two.  You can click here to help me out.  Thank you!

Well I did plug my own posts needing help at the end. Do I still qualify? ;)

These are all great bloggers, and I was really shocked when I saw some of their posts stuck at 1 or 2 votes away from being published. Sometimes it's easy to get your post buried when a new person comes along and submits several posts after you.

Holy cow, Brad, what a nice gesture! Thanks for the bump! (Does this count as a real comment? ;) )

OK, so the truth is, I'd already voted on most of those posts, but I did get to bump a dozen or so into The Published Zone. Nice to help out my fellow BE bloggers!

OK, sorry to be like a psycho crazy commenter, but if you look at BE right this second, all but one of the front page published blogs are ones I pushed up there with Brad's links. Woot! Serious fun for blog nerds!

I just voted up a bunch of your posts! :-) One of these days I'll have time to really dig in at BlogEngage and figure out how it all works.

Thanks Karl. There are many more out there who just need one vote to be published, but I didn't want to overwhelm folks.

Brad, I recently started a new blog, and just added to Blog Engage (designed and wrote first 2 articles Saturday, was bored I guess!) I have never used them before but have heard several of you boasting on it, so I did, and have submitted some votes…..

Hi Brad, I voted too. I'm enjoying being part of the BE community. So much valuable information.

Thanks Rita. I wanted to add you to the list above too, but your avatar from Blog Engage was distorted when I tried to put it in my post so I decided it was best not to include it. There have been a few more Christian entrepreneurs that have joined Blog Engage in the past month. I set up a group for us, and hopefully we can share these type posts with each other there.

Thank you, Brad for thinking of me. I don't know why my avatar was distorted, but thank you for trying. I will check out your group for us over at BE. May you and your family have a blessed and joyous Christmas.

No problem Rita. Your image seemed to be smaller than all the rest of the icons I was able to grab from Blog Engage for this post. When I set the icon size to the standard 30×30 size, yours would not fill the box. I'm not sure what the issue was with it. Every attempt to have it fill the box distorted it.
