Blogfrog community, and why I think it rules!
Ok, raise your hands if you have not seen the Blogfrog community box on my blog over there on my sidebars? (Ya know below my follower gadget?)
Well take another look then.
Now you've seen it.
Now you know what it looks like. :))
@rustinb. That's his Twitter handle. Something about how his wife had a blog and her followers would leave comments and she would respond back to those comments and Rustin thought, "Wouldn't it be cool if you could interact with your readers all the time?" That's essentially what Blogfrog is about. Interacting in your OWN community with your followers on things you'd like to discuss, from current events to what is your favorite flavor of ice-cream?
Rustin joined up with Holly, and away they went with Blogfrog. I got to meet them both at a blogger conference. Cool huh? I thought so.
So that's what Blogfrog is.
Here's why I Cluttered Brain, think it is SO COOL.
Top 10 reasons why I Blogfrog and why you should too!
10- You can share your awesome blogfrog discussions with your Twitter pals as well. (And Twitter is so cool, we all know that.)
9- Blogfrog helps promote your own little blog. (It does, Honest. People come from all over to respond to your discussions and BAM, they can also see your blog posts as well.)
8- Cool contests. (Blogfrog recently had a 4th of July contest where you could challenge yourself by setting blogfrog goals...and if you met your goals, you'd win some prizes. Cool huh?)
7- Connecting with others. (You all know how I LOVE to talk, well, blogfrog helps foster that communication by allowing me to create discussions NOT only in my community but in other communities as well.)

5- They owners of Blogfrog, Holly and Rustin, have the BEST tips about blogging and SEO and they host sweet contests. (I might win one of their contests one day if I'm lucky.)
4- I heart Twitter! Any website that allows me to share discussions on Twitter is da bomb! 'Cause I love my Twitter pals as well!
3- Blogfrog is cool cause I like frogs! Blogfrog has been known to give away really cute stuffed animal frogs to winners! :))
2- I get awesome tweets from @rustinb himself for telling others I'm gonna write a blog post about his community. (I mean who doesn't wanna receive a tweet from rustinb himself?)
1- And the number one reason I use Blogfrog, and YOU should too, is because you like me. You watch me dance here on my blog, why not talk to me over on Blogfrog as well?
