THE NEXT LEVEL - UPDATE


One week to go to Launch Day on Monday lst June and your support just continues to grow and grow. It has been a pleasure to visit your blogs over the weekend and to see the logo banners and blog candy really prominently displayed and as a result of you all spreading the word we now have over 600 Followers!!!!!

We are now in the final stages of completing the editorial for the launch issue with features that we think will have you dipping in and out of The Next Level several times during the week - and that is how we have designed it to be - something more than just a Challenge blog. We have also now closed the applications for Design Team members, with over 200 applicants you can imagine what a difficult choice it will be to select the first Guest Design Team. An announcement of the new team will appear on the lst June and their first contributions will appear in the 8th June issue.

A quick hint and tip for those of you who are experiencing the Blogger issue at the moment connected with Internet Explorer in that you are sometimes unables to access blog pages. Whilst Blogger are searching for a solution, to enable you still to get around blogland, after the blog page has loaded and you get the error message 'Internet Explorer cannot open the web site... Operation aborted' - Click ok, then when you have the white screen, click the back button on your browser and this should re-load the page for you. You may sometimes have to do this a couple of times, but doing this very often does allow you to access the blog page eventually and enable you to move around as normal.

Thanks again everyone for your fantastic continued support - we are seeing in the comments section you are all excited and waiting for next Monday - it will soon be here!!! In the meantime if you are visiting The Next Level for the first time please scroll down to see what we are all about and how you are still in with a chance to win the fantastic blog candy on offer.

  8. Thanks for the tip girls, I don't seem to have the problem that everyone else is describing.It's just uber slow to upload on some blogs and not on others, so the slow ones I just end up cancelling unfortunately.
    I'll be coming back to keep up to date on the goings on until the launch day.

  14. Only a week away, I can't wait. I just wanted to say that I'm so glad you wrote something about the internet explorer error message. I thought it was just me, I checked my computer for viruses, and tried downloading the newest IE. Still didn't fix it, I then decided to switch to Firefox, and haven't had a single error. That error DRIVE ME NUTS! I had even gone back and let the page re-load but it didn't always work. So finally I switched to firefox....
