Only one concern about the contest. AS there will be tons of blogs, many from the "lesser" members, those who aren't that well known here may have their blogs looked over sometimes. Like people like the Moderators and The Three Amigos will get plenty of views of course, but new members that haven't really made a name for themselves may not get quite as many views. How will that work out in the contest?

Good point dark helmet. I myself am a generally quiet member and was thinking about this.

How to get people to look at your blog. Think marketing. What is the most important thing your blog will have that can grab people's attention?

Still thinking?

It is your title. Your title will either grab them or loose them. First you have to know what your going to be talking about. Think about a particular topic, and then create your title from your topic.

For example: If my blog dealt with UFO's, a fairly good title would be UFO facts vs. myth instead of Mystery Lady's Corner. Or if you were dealing with the Illuminiti you could put something like Illuminiti's Secert Plans in action. Other titles specific to blogs could be End Times in the News, The mystery of the AntiChrist, or Searching for Ghosts. In all about you, if you were in a war why not a title such as my experience in Vietnam.

The more specific you get in your title, the more attention your blog will get. A good title can bring in members who normally don't read blogs.

An analogy would be to think about this as trying to sell an item on Ebay. The more specific you are with the title, the better your chances you will have selling that item. The better your blog title is, the better of your chance of catching someone's interest.

Staff aren't in the contest. This is a competition though... You have to be the BEST to win. That's all there is to it.

Do the people who have "risen to the top" on ATS with quality work have an edge? YOU BET, and they earned it too.

ANYONE can "earn it" here. All the "better known Members" started out just like everyone else, a new Member.

The Member above has good point, it is marketing and your title is your "first impression".

This is true to a point, a very short one. New members are joining ATS everyday (heck, all of us were a new member once)... Some, through hard work and effort become more recognizable. Some members make a name for themselves in short order, while others take longer. It's a matter of style, post quality, and of course, post volume. I would look at the blogs as another avenue, much like the Podcast Forum for certain members to rise into prominence (if you think back through the development of ATS, I think you'll see this is the case).

So instead of worrying about new members being overlooked, we should be handicapping the next "ATS Star."

As has been stated... Staff isn't part of the competition.

Blog Monkeys, not just for a day in the life of this simian anymore...

What if we wanted to use 1000 of our own points to buy a fellow member their own blog?
I think that JackofBlades is a good bloke, and I'd like to hook him up with a blog.

Who can do that / Can it be done?

Oh, I know that the Staff are not eligible, they were just the best example in my mind of Members that everyone knows. Not necessarily saying they were part of the contest. Also, I'm not worried about blog views for myself, but more for those that may have their own concern. I'm just that person that asked the question since noone else had. But thanks for the feedback, and good luck with the blogs everyone

I'm assuimng you can buy one, and then U2U him the username and password? But if your unable to purchase more than one blog under the same SN, then the Staff may have to deal with this one.

any word about whether we can have sound files and such on the page?



posted on Jun, 1 2006 @ 10:29 AM

I dunno about sound permanately on your blogs home page, but you could insert a music code into a blog, which results in the music playing when they open the page. Then you could just re-post the blog once it exits your main page of recent blogs. I'm considering doing that until something pops up for permanent sound.

i was going more along the lines of a GIF banner with sound. Thats what i was currently working on for an intro.

Is it easy to learn how to customize the blog? I have never had a blog before, so I was curious if it would be easy to learn how to make one.
