Updates and FAQ

Well, we're coming up on almost two years since our first few members started the Indianapolis Bloggers. The numbers are quickly and steadily climbing, which is great. There are a few things to remember and a few things you may not know if you're new, so I thought it would be a good time to share.

If you would like to join the Indianapolis Bloggers, please click any of the "join" links on the right-hand side bar. Then follow the instructions. It's really easy. If you ever have any questions, just email me and I'll help (art3dp at yahoo dot com).

If you have already followed those steps and have not received your membership, make sure that you have the proper links set up on your homepage. Also, make sure you have been blogging frequently for the past few months. We've had to tighten up our requirements, due to the large number of bloggers wanting to join.

If you've done that and you still think you deserve your membership, email me and we will look into it and let you know what the delay is. Remember that we are looking for quality blogs and we reserve the right to deny your blog for whatever reason we pull out of our... heads.

Current Members
Ringsurf (which powers the actual ring portion of Indianapolis Bloggers) has gone through a massive overhaul. They've made a lot of changes, which means you can too. I believe you no longer need to have links to the "Prev, Next, Join, etc." As long as there is a link to this webpage and to Ringsurf, you should be okay. You can also delete the text that currently shows up next to "Powered by Ringsurf." If you ever have any questions about this, just let me know.

Also remember that if you want a small picture to be posted next to your blog's link (left hand side bar), you need to email the url to me and we'll get that set up. If you have no idea what I mean by that, but you're still interested, email me and we can walk you through it.

If I've forgotten anything, feel free to ask. Thanks for being a part of the Indianapolis Bloggers and be sure to spread the word.
