The Adlandpro Friday news Roundup talks about the blogging community, the credit builder, the Adlandpro wall and as always something to inspire you!
The Adlandpro Friday focus seems to have been changed to the Adlandpro Friday (news) roundup – personally I like it lol.
As you can see from the above image, Mark Dewey has been having fun creating new pages and other creative ways to show off the membership. Thanks Mark and looking forward to what else you will create.
Adlandpro Roundup News Announcements
A warm congratulations to Hafiz who has won this months Credit builder contest. Hafiz is one of those people who challenges people to think about different topics,ask questions and is a very personable, friendly member of Adlandpro. I invite you to go and congratulate him as well as the other members who have also been active in their sharing on Adlandpro.
The credit builder has been a great success and we are attracting many new people to this community. We have also attracted users who are possibly working in “teams” to help each other. As a result I have made changes in the Credit builder one of them building “intelligence” into the system which will make sure that all credits are being earned by legitimate means. The purpose of the Credit builder is to earn credits by sharing good content,engaging with others and to provide a good incentive for those who bring in new members.
As of now the changes for earning credits are
- Increasing credits from 10 to 20 credits for every new person you bring to the membership. You can accomplish this in a variety of ways from sharing of the great content that is being generated on Adlandpro or through the promoting of the splash pages and banners found on the Adlandpro affiliate page
- Responding to posts is now 5 credits
- Likes are worth 1 credit
I am working on developing earning credits for writing good articles on the Adlandpro Blogging community – Look for the announcement coming soon.
The Adlandpro Blogging community is starting to get some very interesting and varied posts and kudos to the authors as well as to the new Admin/editor of the community Diane Bjorling. This has been a learning curve for Diane as she has to keep up with me and the changes I am making on the system. As you are all aware this is not a WordPress or blogger system and my programmers and I have been working everyday to make the blogging system more sociable and easy to navigate. For example, you now have the chance to add a profile (resource box) that will be seen every time you write a post as well as adding your social profiles. I highly recommend that you update your profile on the blogging community as soon as possible so that people will see you as a person rather than a username or a number.
I am turning this part of the Friday over to Diane for a moment so that she can let you know how everything is going
Hi everyone and what a week it has been getting to know my way around the blogging community, reading some very awesome posts and figuring out how best to help everyone.
First off I have been over the guidelines and yes indeed some of them seem very rigid, but then after checking around similar style sites, I realized that these guidelines are in keeping with any community that have high standards. I am talking to different people about the issue of having an affiliate link on a post, so I hope you will bear with me, while I keep checking into the issue and I hope to come up with a solution that will be workable for everyone. The biggest concern has been is that opening the door to allow these kinds of links will encourage articles that are “sales” or advertising style posts, which is prohibited on the Blogging community.
There has also been posts created that are “duplicates” of articles done elsewhere ( another blog post or article that a person has written elsewhere). I can certainly understand the allure of wanting to “write” these kinds of posts, but the fact remains they are repurposed content. I would suggest that you curate your article so that it will come across as fresh and original.
I have created a FAQ to help you with your most common questions about the Adlandpro Blogging Community, which I hope will be of help to you. Just click on Adlandpro blogging community FAQs and if you can think of other questions, please private message me and I will see what I can do to help.
You may wonder what I am really doing as an admin, which is a fair question. Apart from answering questions and at times I have to ask Bogdan to get me the answers lol, I review all the posts that are being submitted. I check for originality of the posts, I help with such things as correcting spelling or grammar and at times if a person needs extra help making their thoughts clearly, then I do that also.
As you may have noticed at times there are glitches and then I have to figure out the problems and make them better.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your support and your messages that help me keep myself grounded and doing the best job I can do to make this blogging community a success. Thanks Bogdan for letting me say something on your Friday news roundup
If you are looking for a good read, I encourage you to read these great blogs from the Adlandpro blogging community
A very special lady is having her birthday soon and I wanted to say Happy birthday to Jo Matthias
The Adlandpro Wall is an amazing place to be! The discussions are lively, the images inspire and make you laugh and what you say is “real” and at times gritty. I want to thank each of you for your contributions, they mean something to everyone and as some have said, this is “home” for them. That is quite an honor! Even though there may be times when we disagree or topics get heated, the one thing that we all share is respect for each other. This list is by no means complete, but a shout out to
Well its time to close this Adlandpro Friday Roundup, it was a rather long post, but I feel many points have been covered. Make sure your subscribe to this blog to keep up with the news of Adlandpro and other topics that will help you with your marketing efforts.
I wish to express my condolences from myself and the Adlandpro family to Jovanka who just lost her mother. Our thoughts and prayers go to her and her family at this time.
I would like to share a post that I read by Sandee Righton
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO SUCCEED
Truth isn’t a matter of your personal viewpoint. Learn to see things as they really are, not as you imagine they are.
Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or who says it. No matter what you believe, it never changes the facts. If they are there, the facts always speak for themselves.
The truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of people. If sixty million people say a foolish thing, it’s still a foolish thing.
The sky is no less blue because the blind man does not see it.
If you are having trouble believing in yourself, watch this a few times
