Funny Ha-ha

I was lying when I said I had nothing to report earlier. I got an email from Blog Explosion today. Blog Explosion is (is supposed to be) a community that helps get your blog seen and out there. When I first started my blog back in the spring, I read about the site and signed up. They said my account would be activated after my blog was moderated, which would usually take a couple of days. Ahem.

Over a week later, with no change on the status of my account, I sent an email to the admins. No response. Wondering what was going on I went to the forums to find a large number of people complaining about the site's recent change for the worse, with people (much like myself) waiting forever for their sites to be approved. It was there that I read a post from someone advertising an alternative. I checked it out and found that it was a burgeoning blog promotion community of refreshingly real and friendly people. I signed up and I'm sure a lot of the traffic I get to my blog I owe to them. So thank you Expose Your Blog!.

Anyway, this morning I got an email from Blog Explosion, who I'd almost entirely forgotten about. It said, merely,


Your site looks great, but must be in a blog format.


Just what about my site isn't blog format?

In all likelihood, the cowboys who apparently run Blog Explosion didn't even look at my blog. Their loss!

That does surprise me. I've been approving blogs for BlogExplosion for nearly 3 years now. I thought I was the only one left, but it seems there is someone else. I cant see why it was refused. BTW, the waiting time is 6 months there.

The reason why ExposeYourBlog! was created was because a band of us were disgusted with the way the owners had abandoned BE. We're determined to give much better service - I think that you'll agree, we're doing fine so far.
