Several changes will be coming to Splashpress Media now that we have left the summer months behind and are well into Autumn.
At the crossroads where old school journalism and new media stickiness collide is where you will find Mel. Using over 15 years of online experience, Mel manages communities with thousands of members who have grown to appreciate his tenacity, reliability, dynamism and wit.
Mel has been working as a blogger for several years now and has had writing stints at Splashpress Media blogs such as Forevergeek in the past. He has now rejoined us as a full time team member and will be covering a variety of blogs in the tech and entertianment channles such as Apple Gazette, 901am, Celebrific and Filmsy. He will also be account manager for our MyBlogGuest profile and responsible for all guest posts on SPM properties.
We have decided to revamp our network page and give it a new look. The network will now consist of 6 main channels:
Several sites within these channels will be redesigned and re-launched in the next 6 months so stay tuned to this blog for updates!
During September we have been moving forwards with our partnership with ManageWP. This allows one to manage multiple wordpress sites from a central location. This is a must have for all publishers operating multiple blogs as it has time saving functions such as upgrading plugins and themes with a single click. The entire umbrella of Splashpress Media covers well over 700 blogs so this will a crucial time saver for us!
Some of the features include:
Automatic blog upgrades to the latest version of WordPress
Centralised plugin and theme upgrades.
Bulk installations on multiple blogs.
Add new content
Managing categories and tags

We are currently working on a brand new forum for our tech/geek site Forevergeek. This will be a board to bring together our readers in one place where they can share their geeky finds on the web, argue over who would win in a fight between Spiderman and Batman and moan about George Lucas’ latest edits to the Star Wars saga.
The forum will be launched in early October with a competition and some great prizes for the readers that create the best new threads, stay tuned to the site!
Blog Search Engine has been running with a paid membership model for around 18 months now and we are going to be revamping its design and also announcing some new packages for bloggers to get even more exposure for their blogs. Expect to see this launched around the first week of October.
