MyBlogGuest Sept 2012 Google+ Hangout: Take-AwaysTuesday, October 9, 2012 21:11
Another informative Google+ Hangout in September, featuring helpful hints, as well as an announcement of Viral Content Buzz, by Gerald Weber. Ann and Gerald have been researching and putting together VCB to meet the needs that they identified in the social media and blogging community.
***Please note: The next MyBlogGuest Google+ Hangout is scheduled for October 27, 2012 at 3pm GMT (4pm BST / 11am EDT / 10am CDT / 8am PDT).***
Ann’s note: Here’s the full video of the last month’s hangout. Also, our very own Social media strategist Deborah Anderson was awesome enough to create takeaways video for us:
Article Quality Guidelines
Phil, MyBlogGuest’s own Editor-In-Chief, shared about quality guidelines in the article gallery and what he looks for when reviewing submitted articles. Here is Phil’s checklist:
Guest Blogging Etiquette
Gerald shared an anecdotal example to teach us about “Guest Blogger Etiquette” and being conscious of the blog owner’s interests.
The MyBlogGuest Community
The MyBlogGuest Community was described as helpful and a lot of sharing. This sharing goes on in the forums, as well as the opportunity, now, with ViralContentBuzz.com.
MBG WordPress Plugin
Viral Content Buzz
Gerald and Ann have put together a sharing site that focuses on quality of articles and the “no obligation” sharing, as well as rewarding those who have more social influence while still allowing those who have less social influence or authority to participate. This sharing site is built to appeal to bloggers, no matter where they are at in their blogging path. Also, Gerald mentioned that for those with limited time availability, there will be an option to pay for credits, in the future. That said, Viral Content Buzz will always be *free* just like MyBlogGuest is free.
