Welcome to the /t/BES tribe! What exactly is this place?
Welcome to the official /t/BES blogging (and vlogging/podcasting) community. It is just one of thousands of user-run communities on the Snapzu platform.
Here you will find QUALITY user-submitted news, links, articles, opinions, advice, tutorials, strategies, and musings on all types of relevant topics such as blogging, vlogging, podcasting, writing, social media, networking, creativity, motivation, productivity, and other common interests among content creators. We also welcome any text posts, such as questions, suggestions, opinions, strategies, and experiences. As bloggers ourselves, our main goal is to create the best and most robust community (and knowledge base) of its kind.
Here's a quick (tl;dr) summary of how this platform works:
Anyone can run a community, and it's completely free. If you run a blog, vlog, or podcast, a community can extremely beneficial for its growth and engagement and here's why.
An up/down voting system is used for quality control and to collectively self-moderate as a community. Popular, quality, and overall good posts stand out, while poor quality posts and spam get obliterated.
Top posts work their way up with more up votes and eventually end up on the Front Page of Snapzu. This is where we showcase the best content from all communities.
There's (obviously) a lot more, but to keep things short and to the point, here's a great short video review segment by the “This Week in Technology” crew from just a while ago.
A call to action:
