What are blogs?
Blogs are web logs that are updated regularly, usually on a daily basis. They contain information related to a specific topic. In some cases blogs are used as daily diaries about people's personal lives, political views, or even as social commentaries. The truth of the matter is that blogs can be shaped into whatever the author wants them to be. N-V-N only allows members to blog by request.

How do I know when my blog has been approved/rejected?
You will only be notified via email if your blog has been rejected, otherwise your blog will stay active in our directory.
Does my blog meet the approval requirements?
If the site you submit is a blog (see What are blogs?) or a blog resource (e.g. blog hosting) and the site does not contain illegal content, then it should have no problem getting approved. However, we frown upon submissions that lead to splash/welcome pages, site under construction pages, password protected blogs, spam blogs containing self-promoting links and blogs which contain very little content. The editors have the final decision on approval/rejection of a submission.
How do I edit my blog listing?
After you have logged in, go to "my sites". Here you can make changes to you site listing on.
What is the "score" and what does it mean?
The "score" that you see next to each listing indicates the listings overall score. Scores play a part in determining a listings rank in search results. A listing will increase/decrease it's score depending on users ratings, incoming traffic and outgoing traffic amongst other variables. Basically, a high score is a good score!
