Hey guys, Lonrem here, Anook's Community Manager Nerd fellow!

Wanted to drop a couple suggestions and hints to make the most out of the website. While you are welcome to ignore any or all of these suggestions and it won't hurt my feelings, I'd love to see you all continue to use this site after the event ends and this will hopefully help you get the broadest reach possible!

  • Tag thine post with a related game! Yes, I know some of you guys post and talk about more than one game, that's totally cool! I'd suggest just tagging the game that the post is most about. By tagging the post, it'll show up on the game page where anybody visiting the page will be able to see your post!
  • Share to nooks! Look are the site and see if there are nooks related to your content. These are the player made groups with various focuses so you've got League of Legends groups of friends, or the ESO faction pages. When you post to nooks, anybody following that group will see your post in their feed, regardless if they're following the game or you.
  • If you have questions, just ask! I am literally here at all times of the day and happy to help you out with any problems or if you want to do something and don't know how! :D Just make a post on your wall and tag me like you might on Twitter. (@Lonrem)
  • I'll update this if more stuff comes up!

I'll also announce here that Anook is going to support Blaugust with a special prize! I'm going to tally up the Hearts that each blog post gets for each blogger (Blaugger?) and award the top blog with a game code. I'm going to see if I can round up other prizes from some of our friends and partners as well, no promises there! This does give a bit of an incentive to post regularly, start on the first of August, but also to share the link to your blog on Anook! If you've got any questions, let me know!

Cheers and Happy Blogging!

I am still having the problem I saw last year where, if I do a blog post to the Blaugust Nook, the post does not pick up the external link I insert (http or https) unless I post and then edit and save again. It also does not pick up a thumbnail from my post.

This is different behavior from when I just post to "Share what's on your mind" on the main page, which always works on the first shot and always picks up a picture and turns it into a thumbnail.
