Internet Marketing July 16th, 2014
Crowdsource your content ideas! How cool is that? Yes, this is what MyBlogU all about. MyBlogU is the innovative community of writers and bloggers who are eager to exchange their case studies, digital assets, expertise and knowledge to help each and get help in return!
Ann Smarty should be able to leverage the massive following she has to make MyBlogU a huge success. It may take some time, but already it’s proving to be a great resource for content creators and those willing to share their expertise.
Also on TechWyse:
We have many SEO communities which offers high value to marketers. Communities like Inbound.org and GrowthHackers.com allow marketers to share, discuss and promote their content. So the question is what is the difference between MyBlogU and these communities?
and much more!

When I heard about this medium, I was very excited to test this out and once I did that I was very satisfied and really amazed by the concept. I then thought to share my experience and guide other marketers to try this platform.
In this blog, I have explained the major features and step by step process to use this platform. So let’s get into it. It’s simple and easy, you can register via Twitter, Facebook or by filling a simple form. Confirm your email address and once you did that login to the dashboard
***Updating your profile after you’ve logged into the system with your Facebook, Twitter and G+ profile ids and is mandatory.
Add Your Sites
You can add your site and or the sites in which you are contributing. Once added, you can select whether this has to be shown publicly or private.
If you are owner of the blog, uncheck the option “I am not the owner, just a contributor” then verify your site by following shown methods. The easy way is email verification, where you need to send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brainstorming is the section where you can add your own projects to ask the community for help. You can ask for ideas or resources for your topic. This is an excellent place where you can project idea and request for more ideas from fellow community members.
This is the place where you can meet new people, their assets, idea and their their experience.
This is really cool section that has become my personal favourite. At TechWyse, I do interviews with well known marketers and I think this section is going to add more value for self branding and also for finding new prospects. I see many opportunities in this section, taking part in others interview and getting mention/link in others blog will definitely increase personal authority in industry.
The Twitter sign-in, in the title of the topic indicates that “This interview will have public Twitter chat and all the contributors will be invited! Great way to get additional exposure and new followers!”
You can even do a group interview which is a great way to create unique content all while getting experts opinions. So start building your authorty in your industry and start building relationships.
This section contains visual assets created by community members. You can find infographics, cheat sheets and other graphics and you can offer your blog to publish these visual assets. Also there is an option to upload your own visual assets and you can get referenced when the asset is published.
To sort the request in each of the three main sections, MyBlogU has categories depending upon the major industries. This easily allows users to find specific requests under different industries.
This section allows you to sort request and post new requests. The options are “All Request,” “My Ideas,”“My Request,” “Archive” and “Submit New Project – Free!” I hope they will make it paid soon 🙂
The and are help and search option.
Are you an expert?, contribute your ideas
The question here is will Matt Cutts penalize a community where people exchange their ideas? The answers is: no. If that is the case then there are various communities which should have been penalized by now.
MyBlogU is a community where marketers share their ideas, thoughts, build relationships and moreover help each other to grow.
“An entity cannot just penalize group of people sharing ideas!”
