Rate my Blog

First we had rate my

Rate my blog! with avatars and there is no special .dll or installation just cut and paste the code into your blog template then you are good to go :)

The widget can be customized via CSS so you could do something like this...

margin: 5px auto;
padding: 2px;
background: #ddd;
color: #fff;
border: 1px solid #000;

The header text in this case "Rate My Blog!" sits outside the widget giving you control over the text.
Unlike the post rating widget your readers will need a account to vote. Which makes sense right!
Because without an account their avatar will not be displayed and link back to their account.

How do you get it? Login go to the accounts page and click the widgets tab.
There you will find all the blogarate widgets in one location.

Enjoy :)

Automated Email Alerts

We've just released an beta version of Blogarate Alerts.

You can save an alert for every new vote or when a post receives more than a certain number of vote...say more then 5 or 20 for example.

Check em out and tell us how you feel about them.
There is also an area to manage your alerts in the account sections.

A piece of functionality that you think should work another way perhaps, or maybe you just want to report a bug!
