So, What's The Fuss About?

Take a look at the comics below, on how the stock market works (click to enlarge it).

Is it far from a real scene? Think about it.
Especially if it happens you work in the field, and are fond of blogging about it.

Generally speaking, word of mouth is a powerful instrument, and being a blogger is responsible. Objectivity should be a priority while blogging, and gathering facts before writing on a topic, will help you be referred as a trustworthy and reliable source by your audience.

May your blogging be successful and enjoyable!

New Blog Design? Shout It Out

BlogUpp Thumbnail DesignBlogging is a dynamic process. There are constantly new blog posts throughout the blogosphere and design updates. BlogUpp is automatically following all those, so that to deliver them fresh to our blogger community.

Now you can update your promoted blog image in real-time, should you changed your blog design or added a catchy image to your latest blog post. Just re-submit your blog at blogupp.com and you are done. Note that the widget doesn't have to be replaced with each new update.

As part of our blog curation process, blog snapshots are re-created by us to better represent your blogs. It is advised that you check your blog in blog directory before you intend to update your blog snapshot. Note that http://www.blogupp.com/directory/blog/Blog-URL stores your blog page in the directory, where Blog-URL is your blog address without http:// prefix (www in the URL might be needed as well, if you entered it when submitting your blog initially with us).

Blog snapshot update is limited to one per day per blog, taken at a resolution of 1024x1124. For security reasons, there are disabled some browser's components, such as scripting and ActiveX, while taking your blog snapshot.

Note that periodically we do review updated snapshots, and re-generate them when appropriate, to best represent your blogs. Should you notice that your blog thumbnail is not refreshed in the widget upon request, it might be that you are still viewing the previous one, stored in your computer's cache.

Terms and Policies. Not the Least Important to Consider

BlogUpp! Terms We've published the Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy related to BlogUpp! service. These are not the kind of terms you wouldn't want to read. They contain important considerations, and possibly the answers to some of your questions.

In there you'll find out:
• why blogs get approved, while others don't;
• what might delay the approval, and
• what could even lead to disapproval;
• informs on what private data we do collect;
• additional notes for Asian bloggers.

We've also made available a special section for advertisers willing to advertise within BlogUpp community. Advertising will appear in the widget at a 1:10 ratio, i.e. for each 10 impressions, only 1 will represent paid advertising - as per earlier announced mutual promotion exchange ratio of 10:9. Advertisers will pass the same filtering criteria as the blogs that get free promotion, so that we don't end advertising questionable content resources. As you understand, advertising is meant to support the day-to-day operations, such as servers, web traffic, etc., so that you finally can make full use of the service, completely cost free.

Till next time. Enjoy your blogging!
