EYB! Status Update - December 29, 2010

Ok, so I left everyone alone over the Christmas season, and was going to for the beginning of the new year, but it is time to "wake up" and talk again. :)

I hope everyone, who celebrates it, had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! I did!

The surfing has been a bit light these past two-two and a half weeks, but I expected that during the Christmas celebrations, and don't expect it to pick up until Monday of next week.

We have had a few new users join us, and with that, there have been a few new blogs added as well. We could still use more users, so remember to put a link in your blog to point people to so that we get more people coming to check us, and your blog, out!

In the new year, there will be some "upgrades" and new things added to the system, and more, and hopefully fun, contesting coming as well!

Keep tuned in!

EYB! Status Update - December 15, 2010

ExposeYourBlog! is pretty much status quo right now. We are holding at about the same number of active members, with surfing down just a bit, which I am attributing to the holiday season. (I pray I'm right here. ;) )

We have found a problem with the verify page software we use to make sure your not a robot surfing, and are working on getting it fixed.

In mid-January expect to see some great changes to the Forums. More on that later!

Surf and Chat is working well, and there are normally at least two people there chatting when I get on, Dirty Butter and Anji, and I would love to see even more people using it!

We are still partnered with Tribal Blogs, in which you can find out more information if you sign up on EYB! and read the newsletters there.

Happy Times!

EYB! Status Update - December 2, 2010

We continue to grow slowly but surely. Having a niche traffic site makes it harder to grow fast as many traffic sites grow, but we are keeping to our promise of keeping the sites focused on blogs. And mostly "clean" blogs! ;)

Our surfing, on average over the past week averages out to 755 blogs seen per day, which is not bad for a new, niche oriented site.

We are being advertised on roughly 4 traffic exchange sites and in several other locations by the text ads, and other ads I've posted.

Now, there does seem to be a problem that I am noticing. People are not sure how to move credits about to banners or texts ads, etc.. So, I will post on that here now!

As you surf on a free account, you earn 3 credits for every 5 sites you visit. As you build up credits, you can convert them into "conversion credits" which you can then convert into Banner Credits or Text Ad Credits, or back to surf credits.

Here is how it works:

Each Surfing Credit becomes 2 Conversion Credits.
4 Conversion Credits makes 3 Banner Credits
6 Conversion Credits makes 5 Text Ad Credits.

You can go back and forth in your conversion process as well. For example you can take 5 text ad credits to create 6 conversion credits, which can then be converted into 3 surfing credits.

You can also use the Conversion Credits as a hold place if you want to slow down the viewing of your blog by others.

Happy Surfing!
