BlogGlue was founded in April of 2009. The application was intended to provide bloggers with a total marketing solution for their blogs. The company currently includes the founder, Paul Kenjora, who is also the CTO and CMO as well as CEO Nicholas Aretakis.
BlogGlue gives bloggers a way to market their blog posts quickly and easily. The application takes much of the marketing footwork out of the process for the blogger. The user only has to add the plugin and begin posting to their blog. In less than one to two hours, their blog is linked through partner sites and social networks.
The BlogGlue website has a pleasant, upbeat design that uses a softly blue sky, with dainty white clouds and colorful images that show how a user’s blog can be marketed all over the world through popular online sources. The site manages to remain very neat and organized without breaking away from its colorful, almost cheerful style.
A new user can become a BlogGlue member by clicking the green “Start Free” button near the lower, right hand side of the homepage. The site asks the user for their email address, username, password and a word verification to prevent spam. Two check boxes are automatically selected at the bottom of the page. The top box signs the user up for account update emails and the second box adds the user to the BlogGlue newsletter list. The user must uncheck one or both to opt out of email updates.
BlogGlue gives users three membership options to choose from. The first is a free plan that includes up to five partners and 200 related posts. The Basic plan upgrades to 15 partners and 1,000 related posts for around $10 per month. The Unlimited plan gives the user unlimited partners, up to 5,000 related posts and a featured listing in the BlogGlue search pages.
BlogGlue could be a helpful tool for anyone who is serious about their blog. The service can help users gain readers and increase the popularity of their blogs. The three plans are economically priced so even a small time blogger can easily afford a paid membership if they want one.
