Print your WordPress blog!

WordPress is a must-have and very popular blogging platform. Obviously, BlookUp supports the creation of blog books from a WordPress blog.

It’s easy and simple.

What are the elements that we import from your WordPress blog?

BlookUp will import your posts in their entirety (title, text, photo, etc.) so that the blog book is as representative as possible of your online post.

We also import the category, date, tags to allow you to organize your blook according to the most relevant criteria.

BlookUp has developed an innovative technology that will fetch complete information directly from the heart of your WordPress blog system (API). This is why you need to enter your login credentials for this to work.

Once we have imported all the necessary data, you can use it to produce your blog book by personalizing it.

BlookUp: Blog, Medias, frequency, news and THANK YOU!

At the end of 2016, we gave you informations about BlookUp‘s blogging and social networking activities. Today, we – already- have to update you on the situation!

THANK YOU !

thanks-follow-blog

In the first place (yes, we start the article by the last element of our title, like some kind of blog punks), we would like to thank you from the bottom of our heart for your growing support, your shares, your commitment…

In 2017, significant subscriptions goals have been reached for all our communication platforms, and that is obviously thanks to you!

The blog is still there, in French (here) and in English (here. Like, no, really, no need to click, you’re already there 😉 ), but as some have noticed, our publication rhythm has kind of declined; No more publications on Tuesdays and Fridays but don’t panic, we explain why!

The first reason to this is simply our desire to propose a unique rendez-vous, every Wednesday, in order to make every article more  like a weekly celebrity coming to sign autographs at a given time. Punctuality is key!

The second reason is also quite simple, and that’s…

Tumblr is the latest active network of BlookUp. This microblogging platform will be ideal to share with you the daily life of our startup!

Our Tumblr will be more like a Facebook page, a Twitter or an Instagram account, with a freer and more casual tone. The publications are to be short but more numerous, and this is why WordPress articles, longer and therefore more demanding in terms of research and writing, will be posted once a week to ensure their quality!

That being said, if you have a Tumblr account (or if you are just curious!), Subscribe to this new blog and enter the daily BlookUp life, joys, pains, environment, team… And much more!

There are also some changes on the social networks side, which regularly relay each publication from the WordPress blog (and soon Tumblr), and had a fairly fixed number of publications per day… Now we blow up the locks, get free, and we post, we share, we react live!

We are as well increasing the emphasis on mages… For the pure pleasure of the eyes!

Meeting with Frank, a basket lover and a blooker!

  • Tell us about yourself

Passionate about basket but also about writing, I opened Hoop Diary 7 years ago. First, it was a blog hosted on the website basketsession, and it was one of the “star blogs”. Then, the website was closed and I’ve created Hoop Diary on WordPress, to save all my writings.

I’m still very invested in the basket’s world, as a trainer after being Development Director for a minor ligue.

  • What is your blog about?

The first posts was really about my experience as a player and as a trainer, and my thoughts about it. My blog also contains videos of my trainings, it allows me to keep them somewhere.

Then, I’ve wanted to share stories around Toulouse’s basket, before they were forgotten. Finally, Hoop Diary became the website for all the pyrenean basket, some of my posts were shared on other websites.

At last, there are many categories on my blog, including “les routards du basket” (I retrace the steps of big players), “Hoop” (where I highlight picturest grounds). This last category gave birth to my Instagram account.

  • Why did you decide to print your  basketball blog?

I’ve always been fascinated by books, in general. A furnished library is the most valuable thing in my house! Print my blog was the chance for me to keep a paper track of my writings and give body to them thanks to the book. I also intend to publish my own book one day, about the pyrenean basket’s history.

  • How did you know BlookUp?

Thanks to a Valentine’s Day gift! My wife printed my Instagram account, and then I had my blog printed. She’s a blogger too, that’s how she discovered BlookUp.

  • What are the positive points?

The possibility to sort, organize the posts. It’s very easy.

  • How can we improve our service?

More choices for the covers (colors, photos…). Some posts were in two different categories, so it was a little hard to classify them.

  • What do you think of your basketball blook?

The result is good, with quality paper. Regarding the Instagram blook, I think it’s perfect!

  • What does your family think about your basketball blook?

The feedbacks are very positive, it gives a new life to my blog and allows them to dive into the posts again!

  • Would your recommend BlookUp?

Yes I would recommend BlookUp, and I will certainly make another blook in a while!

Let’s start !

1-Choose the subject of your blog

Before launching your blog, you definitely have to know what it will be about. Subjects are everywhere : travels, food, fashion, cars, fitness, animals, cinema… If you are passionated about what you are blogging, then your readers will be passionated too.

3- Create a blog you love

This is your own space. It has to correspond to your personality, to who you are and to what you love. It means choosing a nice name of blog, finding your own way of writing your articles, using your photos. The more your blog will correspond to you, the more you will enjoy writing articles… and the more your readers will love it !

4- Focus on quality content

Every single article must be written rigorously. For instance, incorrect spellings will make the reader loose the meaning of the text. He will only be focusing on these mistakes. If you know this is one of your weakness, then work on it ! And do not hesitate to read your post again and again before publishing it 😉

5- Talk with your readers

To create a relationship with your readers is something you have to keep in mind. In one word, blogging means sharing. If you share with them, then you will receive a lot (followers, comments, likes). So do not forget to answer their comments and questions as much as you can (even if it is not always easy when you have a lot of followers), talk to them, offer giveaways…etc.
