Integrate Your Blog’s RSS Feed
After signing up and activating your membership you can add your blog’s RSS feed to your profile so that whenever you post a new entry on your blog it will automatically display on your profile and in our site wide activity page! To do this navigate you “Settings” under “My Account” in the top navigation bar. Then click on “External Blogs” and add your blog’s RSS feed.
Blog Trends™ private messages are helpful in the event you need to connect with one of the Blog Trends™ members privately and you need more than the limited amount of space a Twitter direct message offers. You can send private messages to just one member or multiple members at a time. Compose a message or navigate to a member’s profile and click “send private message”.
Groups & Forums
Join & Create Groups
One of the biggest features the Blog Trends™ members have been looking for is a way to organize themselves into groups by location or interest. Now you can join one of the many groupsthat already exist or create your own.
All of the Blog Trends™ groups have an activity wall and their own forum built in to allow group members to share events and ideas. Every topic created in the forums will also be display in the group’s activity feed.
Each group has the ability to turn on docs. This tool allows each group to collaborate on and share documents with all of the members. This can be useful for organizing local events, brain storming and many other things!
