    When I have more time - I'll try and do a detailed reply - but for now I'd say stay well clear. Apart from the huge cost of the product itself - you'll have to have a $200/month server to run it on - plus it does not do what it says on the tin. Support was woefull too.

      Its now almost a year since your last post and would very much like to get your scoop on Bloggingmaster. There doesn't seem to be much out there available. Almost implying that no one bought into the system.

    I purchased blogging master and it was an outright disaster. I have never made a negative post to date (not my style) but I just had to speak up:

    The guy out and out ripped me off. I am very reasonable and patient in my dealings and this guy kept stringing me along for weeks, always promising, never ever delivering anything functional. Finally when I insisted on a refund - which his site says is offered - he completely ignored my request. Finally after feeling ready to rip my hair out, I attempt to pursue a refund through paypal.

    He won the chargeback because paypal said it was the sale of an intangible thus proof of delivery could not be established.

    If you have any desire not to get ripped off, avoid this vendor with every fiber of your being. This is from my first hand experience.

    Again I've never written a negative post here on the forum until today but I wanted to warn those of you what you could expect if you get blogging master.

      Just FYI, even if you used PayPal, but the funds originated from your credit card, you can still dispute the charge via your credit card company or bank, and you would most likely win it.
      Had a somewhat similar experience where i was actually past the 60 days paypal time limit for disputes, yet my bank reversed the charge

      regards

      Can you be more specific as to why it was a disaster? Did you get your server with the script installed?

        For future purchases...if you take a screen shot of the refund offer on their sales page, it helps speed up a refund from your credit card company. It's not your word against theirs anymore. I have never gotten good help through Pay Pal.

          Got my server with the BloggingMaster script. So far, I'm a happy camper. :-)

          Now for the hard part.....

          I will keep you all updated.....

      I have just paid $475 with another $475 due in four weeks. I am also a little skeptical as I already have had dealings with Steve Porter and the customer support is miserable....but, I have to say the scripts and training material/videos are first class. Better still, I am actually making money from his Buildablogstore product.

      If I can at least get my BloggingMaster server handed over (its now been five days) and provided I don't need any assistance then I will be on a winner.

      Its a huge risk so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

        I'm looking to pull the trigger on this one too. So I'm very interested to hear how you get on.

        Hi Bert,

        How did it work out for you with BloggingMaster in the end? I signed on with the program before finding these forum entries. Paid up front but my server is doesn't post. Plus the system has been throttled back in terms of how many blogs it will post per market. I'd be grateful if you would advise...
        Thanks in advance

        Hey Bert,

        I am interested in using Buildablogstore. Can you give me some info please.

        1) Are you still using Buildablogstore and you still getting results (i.e. Making money)?

        2) Have you had issues getting support/help for the product?

        3) Your overall option of the product to date?

            The sales page for buildablogstore has lots of affiliate networks CJ, Linkshare, Amazon, etc... But in the video demo it indicated on the setup options only eBay & Amazon. Does it have and obtain products from all the networks shown on the sales page?

              Buildablogstore fails to deliver on most of the promises in the sales letter page. Like BloggingMaster, Buildablogstore or BABS, is severely flawed. I set up 50 BABS sites on .com domains with custom (non footprint) themes, each domain on a seperate IP and all domains spread across 20 C- Blocks.

              End result...I made no money! Nada! Seems the coding associated with BABS needs some serious work before it becomes a viable product. All I did was lose a lot of time and money.

    I was a member of blogging master in 2007. Then, it was run by two guys, John Caviani and Peter Bresko (spelling might be off).

    John was awesome and really really knew his stuff. Peter was the technical person. Things were good for a while, but then something happened and John left. From that time onward, Blogging master was not a good experience. There was problems with new updates, my server was not working right.

    I do not know who Steve Porter is. Unfortunately, after 6+ months and lots of money spent, it did not work out for me. I cannot recomend it to anybody and I would say buyer beware.

    Well, its been three weeks now and not a single blog has been created on my server. I can get the interface up and running (albeit with a range of issues) but it wont post.

    Support is atrocious! It takes on average 12 hours to get a single response to the most minor of questions and then the response is never technical and never resolves the issues.

    Now after three weeks I am told the script needs to be re-installed on my server because my Twitter accounts had an underscore in the username!!!!! I was told it would happen ASAP, but I have not had a response in two days!!

    Its all unfortunate as the concept seems awesome. I will persist.

    The most horrendous most disgraceful blogging tool ever launched on the market. Steve Porter (fake name) who is really Peter Bresko is a shameless conman who has ripped off hundreds of people with this product and the many versions (disguises of it). Blogging Master has never worked. To-date, I have lost $2,400 and after all the promises of refunds, this sham operation has never refunded anything. I am now left with a $400/monthly server expenses and nothing to show for it.

    Peter Bresko offers no support at all. He never answers emails and on the rare occassion when he does, he is rude, obnoxious and arrogant beyond compreshension.

    Peter Bresko (alias Steve Porter) also offers BABS or Buildablogstore which suffers the same problems and the same shameful worthless support.

    This is a person whom needs to be locked up.

      @BertTassoni - Hi Bert. I gather from your most recent entries that BloggingMaster is dead in the water. Can you tell my why you think BloggingMaster sounds like a good idea? To me it sounds like a pure spam generator creating hundreds of blogs that nobody, including the SEs will ever look at. Am I missing something?

        Yes, it does create hundreds of blogs and I can assure you that both the SE (especially Google) does look at them and the blogs convert nicely for EPN and Amazon. Concept works on the theory that if one such blog generates $20 each month (and they do) what will 2,000 such blogs generate? :-)

        Its not white hat by a long shot so if you prefer to stay on the straight and narrow, this is not for you. And, if it is don't look at BloggingMaster or BABS as you will be very disappointed and out of pocket.
