On January 11, I joined Entrecard and put the "Drop Yours" widget on my sidebar.
This site is only a couple months old, and it is quickly becoming a thriving social network.
It is a great tool for beginning bloggers, and seasoned bloggers can also benefit by the added exposure it can bring.
The object of the program is to visit other members blogs, and "drop" your card onto their widget. You earn credits which you can use to buy ad space on other member's blog for a 24 hour block.
You also earn credits when members visit your site and drop their card. When they buy ad space from you, you earn more credits.
You are in complete control of who advertises on your site and with whom you advertise.
I have had many new visitors these last couple of weeks, and I have also discovered many new blogs with great information on many different topics.
I extend a big Welcome to all the new visitors that Entrecard has brought me and I thank you for the comments and recommendations that you have given me.
