Purely Blogging

Pure Blogging is a blog that I often visit. I like participating in their posts as well as getting a few weekend links.

First impression

Pure BloggingMy very first impression was that it was a great domain name and clean theme. Not heavily monetized, but the regular google ads. After reading a bit, I was kind of lost. I saw several authors on the sidebar, but no way to join, or even mention about it. I would definitely be interested in guest blogging if I knew how (and if I was welcome).

Pure Blogging Give Back to Their Readers

I took a few days before completing this review, and I am glad that I did. Just as we have our Comment Friday, Pure Blogging does it a bit different.

“Every Friday, I reward the active members of this community by featuring an interesting post from the top commentators.”

Not only do you get a free link, but he also stumbles your post! Weekend Links are a great idea.

Popular Posts

Pure Blogging is obviously about blogging. If you want some blogging tips I definitely suggest you start at the June Roundup where the most popular posts for June are posted. There also is a Top Posts section that is the most popular posts including different categories, very well organized.

What’s Their Incentive?

A good blog gives the reader incentive to participate and read their blog. Not only should you be active at pure blogging for “free links” but there is a contest.

200$ Cash Giveaway!

The person who leaves the 1000th comment will win 100$ cash by PayPal. Pretty easy right? Good luck.

The second part to that is linking back to the contest. One lucky person who blogs about the contest will be win, lottery style.

The contest will end when the 1000th comment is received, which is projected to be in the next few days. If you enter make sure to post that you saw this on BAYB.

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for the review! Very nice.

    You’re right about the guest author thing. I should make it more more obvious and provide a link to get more information. I made one post about it in May… got several offers and then never got around to really publicizing it on the site. I’ll work on that.

    And of course you’re welcome… we would love to have you.
