Blog Engage has undergone it’s first major redesign in 4 years and the new version of the site puts users front and center. Featured users and showcasing members are key in the new version of Blog Engage.
The members voted and the new blue color scheme replaces the former green one for buttons and highlights. The slider is a great attention grabber that showcases the featured members articles and spotlights. This is a great reward and incentive to become a Blog Engage business member too so you can have featured spotlights that are attention grabbing right there on the homepage.
As you scroll down from the homepage a little you will see the top commentators, top voters and hot upcoming news (articles that are nearing publication to the homepage). This is a great way to instantly find what is new and upcoming at a glance.
Right under that section you have your homepage published articles in a format that is quite appealing. You will see that there are no Vote Down buttons anymore on Blog Engage, Blog Engage is about sharing and promoting articles you think provide value but not snubbing an article and penalizing a member. If you think an article doesn’t make the cut, don’t vote for it, but there was really no reason to vote down articles specifically.
Blog Engage is an awesome article directory that not only helps promote and showcase your articles but your identity as a blogger. You get to network and meet other bloggers and engage in a community focused on helping each other. For a new blogger this is about a good a directory to start with and gain an immediate boost in traffic, backlinks and attention from other bloggers in your niche.
