Is BlogJob finally accepting new users again? The answer is, I’m not sure.
I had seen several new users registered as of yesterday. And I also received my first friend request from a new BlogJob user. So I think the site must have decided to open up to new members again. That was really exciting news, because I know a lot of folks had been reading my blog posts here, and were hoping to join the site. They’d been waiting it out for several months, while BlogJob has been closed to new users.
It looks like the change might be linked to BlogJob’s successful migration to a faster server, which I’m thinking would accommodate more traffic from more users. But I tell you this news very cautiously, as there’s been no official announcement. There may also be a cap on how many can join in a given time period: when I sent my daughter a referral link and she tried to use it, she was told the site is closed to new users.
I suspect this is because the admin is trying to control the flow of new users, so upon advice from a friend who has seen the access open and close a few times, I’ve told my daughter to keep trying. I have a forum question out to the admin to confirm, but in the meantime I’ll offer the same advice here: assume the site is open, but be prepared to try again if you can’t sign up the first time.
Referring New Members to BlogJob
Referring a new user to BlogJob helps a member earn 50 points, which is huge compared to other earning opportunities here. So if you are reading this and you want to join the site, use somebody’s referral link!
Please try to remember this, whenever you’re able to join the site. It makes a big difference for your friends. You can use mine, but if you have another friend here whose link you’d like to use that’s great too. I’d just like to see one of the current members get the credit, if you heard about BlogJob from a current user.
For those who would like to refer a friend, you can find your referral link on your BlogJob profile page. Mouseover your username at the top right of a page, and look for “profile” in the menu, then click on “View.” your referral link will display on the page, just under “General” in the main view tab.
I look forward to seeing more new faces on BlogJob. I hope you’ll all like the site as much as I do!
