How many recommends is needed for blogs to appear on front page?

Is it three recommends, four? I am just curious

Hello Jason 😊

It is currently 3. That can change though.

I see from your Profile Page, that you have 3 recommends already, so here are the other requirements to get your blogs on the Front Page.

At least 1 photo in the blog, that has been uploaded within 10 days prior to publishing the blog.
At least 400 words in the blog.

These requirements are also subject to change. To ensure that you get to be and remain a Front Page blogger, make your presence felt to get more recommends. People who are most visible generally get more recommends.
To make your presence felt you could do some of the following.
Post on the forums
Comment on the blogs of others
Recommend other bloggers
Get as many blogs as possible on the Front Page while you fulfill the current recommends requirement. Note: Only one of your blogs can be on the Front Page at a time, so wait until one drops off the queue, before posting the next, to maximise the number of viewings each blog gets.

But please also note that the intention of the front page is to highlight bloggers who produce good writing and photography, rather than people who are adept at social networking! Reply to this

I see one of your blogs on the Front Page now, Jason. Your first Featured Blog, I presume. Excellent photos! I didnt read the blog yet, but hope to get around to it soon. 😊 Reply to this

Jason, I read your personal page and it seems like you are well on your way to completing your goal of reaching 100 countries. You may be interested in doing some research on a group called Travelers Century Club.

We move around the world much slower than you so you will meet that goal far sooner than we will. We like to spend extended periods of time in each country. To spend time talking with the locals and gain an understanding of their life and the issues they face each day--- understand their religion, politics and health care. It is good to see the games the children play as they grow up and understand what their educational experiences are like.

In response to: Msg #160957 The blog in question is posted. New Blogs are a tab on the front page, but they are replaced by other new blogs so don't stay there very long. Reply to this
