BlogCatalog September Newsletter

Last week we rolled out several of the updates we have been quietly working on the past month and got a great response from the community. It was so great that we wanted to quickly go through and explain what's new in BlogCatalog.

Updates include:

Updated Blog Listings

We've cleaned up the blog detail pages to put more focus on your blog's content, what your blog is about, and similar blogs.

Neighborhoods are now Favorites

Since the creation of blog neighborhoods there has always been some confusion over just what that means, since your neighborhoods are basically just your favorites, it made sense for us to make the terminology match. Like a blog? Tag it and add it to your Favorites so you can keep up with the latest posts and easily find it later.

Manage Your Blogs

We have updated the Manage Blogs page to give you more information about the status of your blog as well as the ability to sort the order they appear on your profile should you have more than one Blog. Simply drag and drop your blogs and the order will be updated instantly. It's that easy!

BlogCatalog Mobile

did you know there was an iPhone version of BlogCatalog?! If you are an iPhone junkie like we are visit to learn more.

Discussion Editing

If you have ever started a BlogCatalog Discussion and realized after posting you made a mistake in the title or tags, you should appreciate that we've finally added the ability to edit the title and tags for a discussion you have created.

Default Thumbshot Images

We've created a graphic for those thumbshots that we just haven't gotten to yet for one reason or another. No more mysterious blank white boxes.

So there you have it. Take a look around and then let us know what you think about the updates. love them? hate them? let us know in the discussions:

Until next time,
