A new look for Travel Photo Blogging

Today I made a few changes to the template. I like the layout of the template just the way it is, so I didn't go changing it.

This is the first visual makeover of this blog since its birth. I would dare to say it is not the last.

So how do you like it? Do you have a suggestion for an even better blog?

An example of the worst possible timing

In my previous post I tried to promote BE (BlogExplosion) - it's a great way to boost your blog traffic and have fun in the process.

However - I chose to do that in a worst moment possible. As my blog post was published, at BE they have decided to move to new servers (the very same day!). Of course this meant their homepage was inaccessible for the day and nobody interested could check the BE page.

I am trying to console myself that the reason I haven't given away any credits yet was unavailability of BE webpage.

However, the be webpage is up again and my offer still stands - 50 credits for the first three of you signing up.
You can read more on the subject in this post or go to BE homepage by clicking on the banner below.

Explode your blog traffic - join BlogExplosion

Have you heard of BlogExplosion yet?

I believe most of you have. It is one of those blog traffic generating tools.
But it's more than just that. Even if you are using it I am pretty sure, you haven't tried all of what it has to offer (I am also not exploiting all of the traffic generating tools yet). Keep reading this post and you might even get a new idea or two!

Its primary idea is surfing other blogs to earn credits. You can spend those credits for bringing traffic to your blog (1 credit = 1 visit to your blog).

The fact is that BE (BlogExplosion) has much more to offer besides just that:

  • You can battle other member's blogs. And by doing that you can see how good your blog really is (and generate traffic in the process). Do you dare?

  • You can play various games (Sudoku, Scratch Cards, Arcade games etc). Most of them give you a chance to earn credits.

  • There is a vast community of active bloggers. They can help you solve your problems (blog related and others), review your blog and advise you on possible improvements. You can earn credits for helping others in the same way.

  • Another way of drawing traffic to your blog is through banner advertising. Once they are at your blog, you just have to persuade them that it's worth coming back. How hard can that be?

  • You can also listen to a really good BE Radio and earn credits just by doing that. If you use your computer most of the day like I am, you can earn a hundred credits as a daily average.

These are just some of the things BE has to offer. There is much more to explore.

Some sources say that the quality of traffic generated by sources similar to BlogExplosion is really low, but that is not entirely true.
From my own experience I can tell you that unfortunately most of the traffic generated this way doesn't come from future regular readers.
But after a couple of days of not using BlogExplosion, I have noticed, that quite a few BE members are still visiting my blog. Of course a lot depends on the quality of the blog itself. You have a blog worth visiting, right?

Why would you believe me? You shouldn't. You should try it out yourself!
You have nothing to loose. But you can win a lot (of traffic) and have loads of fun in the process. :)

To help you make the right decision, I will transfer 50 credits to the BlogExplosion accounts of the first three of you who decide to join by clicking on the add below.
You have to send me an email so that I can make the transfer. Please include the part of confirmation mail from BE where your username and the date of joining can be seen. Send the email to msinkovec*hotmail.com (replace * with @).
