Increase Traffic To Your Blog: How To Make The Most of Your Entrecard

Photo:Courtesy of Entrecard

I have discovered this through trial and error, and I want to share this short pointers with whoever is interested:

1. Make your “Drop In Box” the basis of what blogs to drop on. Start backwards from the last going to the first dropper.

I usually start with page no.5. Then click on the “cards you haven’t dropped on”, when I proceed to pages 4,3,2, and then 1.

I find this very effective because I receive more drops, than when I started with page 1. ( of course, using the Entrebar will facilitate dropping.)

2. If you have several blogs. Don’t drop all the 300 cards on one blog and forgo dropping cards for the rest of your blogs.
Instead, drop at least 50 -100 cards per blog , making sure that all of your blogs have at least 50-100 drops/day.

3. Invite guest bloggers and watch your links increase. It is also one way of strengthening friendships .

4. Be generous in helping other people. It wouldn’t hurt you if you extend a helping hand.
In helping others, in the long run, this will come back to you too.
GIGO- "Garbage In –Garbage Out".
I started with 4 readers in my Gewgaw Writings and now it is a lot more.

5. Stop and comment on posts you find interesting . You could not contribute anything worthwhile if you just comment for the sake of it. Sincerely commenting on other blogs will surely gain you some good friends and - of course - readers too.

6. Always reply to your readers ( I know this have been emphasized by no less than Graham himself). It’s like acknowledging them and showing them some respect.

7. If you have more time , then you can venture on the “Campaign Bar” and visit new blogs to add more to your favorites.

8. Buy advertisement spaces from other entrecarders. This will increase the visits and of course readership of your posts.

I'm still learning and experimenting on the various activities.
I'll let you know if I discover something again.
Happy blogging!

The Tempting Arm of Morpheus - Should you be seduced?

Sleep is defined by Webster as "the natural periodic suspension of consciousness during which the powers of the body are restored."

Sleep is defined by philosophers as being in the Arms of Morpheus (The Greek God of Dreams) and therefore being temporarily dead. We are rendered "unconscious." It is in this state that we recoup whatever energy that we have lost during the busy hours of the day.
When we sleep, our body cells are energized and rejuvenated. This is done when certain cells in the brain and in the central nervous system are allowed to rest and are repaired by specific agents inside our body, like enzymes.

A person who is deprived of long hours of sleep will be lethargic, will lack muscle coordination, will have poor memory and concentration and will be irritable.

The longer a person is deprived of sleep the more his brain cells are stressed out. This will cause them to secrete substances which are harmful to the body.

In extreme cases where there is longer deprivation of sleep, a person becomes incoherent and could be driven "insane."

For young persons, at least 10 hours of sleep is needed to enhance secretion of the growth hormone , a hormone responsible for growth of all cells in the body.

So don't be afraid to be seduced by the Arms of Morpheus. Give in graciously and get your much needed sleep to rejuvenate your body cells.

MyLot Site - A Good Forum Site Where You Can Earn Too.

I was surfing earlier when I came upon the MyLot site. I was pleasantly surprised to notice that it was a forum where they pay you to interact with other users/readers all over the globe. You are allowed to express your opinions ask questions you want the answers to - AND THEY PAY YOU!

I had once participated in a similar question and answer forum and I did so with fervor and dedication, but got no monetary reward from it.

I know money is not everything but, who does not need extra cash in these hard times?

So I registered FOR FREE and the topics were interesting ranging from money, to blogging, to health, etc.

You could also add your blog there and that would be additional exposure for you.

What more you'll receive 25 % of the earnings of all persons you refer to the site.

I just started one day ago, so I still did not yet receive any pay outs.

Well, I hope when I do, it would be something substantial as I wanted to be an active member.
