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 postings throughout the blogosphere, and design updates. BlogUpp! is automatically following all those, so that to deliver them fresh to its community.

Now you can force BlogUpp! update your promoted blog image in real-time, should you change your blog template and design. Just re-enter your blog URL at blogupp.com, press Enter and you are done! And you don't have to replace the widget code on your blog with each new update.

Having in mind that blog thumbnails are re-created by us to better represent your blogs, it is advised that you first check your blog in blog directory before you intend to re-generate your blog thumbnail. 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. Depending on how your blog was submitted initially, www prefix might also be part of blog directory address.

Note that thumbnail update operation is limited to 1 per day per blog. The snapshot is taken based on the view generated in Internet Explorer at 1024x1124 resolution. For security reasons, while making a new snapshot of your blog there are disabled some browser's components, such as scripting and ActiveX (including video embeds).

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 old one, stored in your cache. Consider clearing it, and try again.

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!
