If you have quality content on your blog, you no need to fear about Google updates. Make sure your blog posts answer each and every question about the topic you’re covering. Publish very in-depth posts that are better than any other article on a similar topic, and resort from black hat strategies.
If you ask me, BloggingX is not affected considerably even a single time, mainly due to the quality of content and good link profile.
