How Participating Bloggers Can Help Get More Blogs to join Up

All participants can help promote Blog Jog day by inviting their networking friends to join in.

Things you can do to help promote Blog Jog Day:
*Post an “upcoming” announcement on your Blog inviting other Bloggers to join.
*Post a Blog about the event on your Ning membership sites.
*Post a notice on your Facebook Page and Twitter.
*E-mail all your friends and family Bloggers to let them know about Blog Jog Day.

Most of you know me or have worked with me online to promote books. I am very efficient in my promotional efforts. My Blog, "A Book Inside" reached a Page Rank 4 in just 6 months online! Together we can be even better!

When I first promoted my Ning site, I used a similar method to get initial visitors. I had over 500 hits and nearly 300 new subscribers on the first day! I accomplished that by notifying just my own social networking friends. Then, after asking my new members to notify all their social networking friends, our membership grew tenfold! Imagine what we could do as a networking team??

Finally, about one day before Blog Jog Day:
*Send a reminder note to all your friends on your social networks, e-mail, mailing lists, Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, etc. and ask them to jog on Blog Jog Day.
*If you have an Entrecard, drop, drop, drop on May 9!
*Join in the jog on Blog Jog Day! We too can jog on that day to visit other interesting Blogs in the circle!

F.A.Q. About Blog Jog Day

Q. I have more than one Blog. Can I include all of them on Blog Jog Day?
A. Yes, it’s $2.00 per Blog, no limit!

Q. My Blog is not yet highly ranked by Google or Yahoo. Can I still participate on Blog Jog Day?
A. The best thing about Blog Jog Day is that it is beneficial to everyone, regardless of the popularity of your Blog. Everyone is encouraged to participate.

A. No. All Blogs on any topic or subject matter are welcome and encouraged to participate. We would like Blog Jog Day to be an adventure for all visitors.

Q. I live in a different country but would like to include my Blog, can I do that?

A. Sorry, it would be too difficult to connect specific links but if you submit your links together, they should be connected. Jog on May 9 to find your link!

Q. Why Sunday May 9? Do I have to be available?
A. Sunday was chosen because research showed it was the most active Blogging day. Although it would be best for all of us to join in the Blog, it is not necessary for you to be "available" on Blog Jog Day as long as your post is pre-set to appear on time.

Q. I don’t have a PayPal account. How else can I pay the $2.00?
