The first time that I heard about BlogEngage.com was while visiting Karen Woodham's Blazing Minds blog. I kept seeing these advertisements for Blog Engage on her site and the phrase, "Blog Engage," alone, caught my attention. I like to engage, and to engage with other bloggers? I was curious.
Soon after, Karen had a contest and the prize was a Blog Engage account. Ok, I was game. I mean, all I had to do was a few tweets and shares per day, right? Silly me was new to raffles and didn't realize it was a drawing. So, after I had ensured that I was ahead, by all the points I garnered, sure that I would win, I was sad to find out I didn't win the Blog Engage membership.
I would daily visit BlogEngage.com and try to figure out what it was all about. It wasn't clear to me at the time, as I felt like I was peering through the windows, like a child looking at a candy store.
