My Entrecard Statistics Report

Entrecard Statistics
This chart shows the number of cards that I dropped on other peoples blogs in the last 30 days. Is it good, isn't it? I really want to boost my visibility by dropping my card in the blog inbox, as well as gaining my credits. What I did was, visit more blogs and drop whenever I see the drop yours button. Am I deserve to get 'A drop master (Deeply committed - Deadly serious)' rank?

I have tried to drop almost all categories in Entrecard, from the 'Art' category to 'Writing and Literature' category, from the most expensive to the cheapest ones. This way, I thought I would get reciprocal drops in my inbox, but the number of cards that were dropped on my blog each day didn't show a good number of drops as well as my advertising price and my position in the Campaign listings.
My widget is on the first page on my blog, and it is easily visible to Entrecard-enabled visitors. The way I have done before was wrong. Why? Because I didn't get a good number of reciprocal drops in my inbox. So, from now I have decided to have an experience by dropping only cards that were dropped in my inbox and see what will happen next.

You might already knew the tips and tricks on how to drop your card quickly. But here, I just want to share what tools I use to drop my card. I use Firefox 3 with ImgLikeOpera add-ons and Entrebar 0.9.1 Beta version. I think, these were great tools.

For your information, if you want to advertise on my blog through your Entrecard, my blog is open. I decided not to decline any pending ads, because I know how it feel. See my blog profile for details.

I hope you enjoy reading this. Feel free to give advices or share your thoughts by leaving your comments below.

It's Time To Check My Blog List

Blog List
As we all know, people like to exchange links. It's a good way to stay connected to each other. Most blogs I've visited have a Link List, Blog List or BlogRoll in their sidebar or blog post (it depend on how they name it). As I know, this link exchange will improve the Google PageRank and Alexa Traffic Rank (if they visit each other regularly). The problem is, when people have a link on other blog, sometimes they don't give a link back without notice. I don't know what they think. I mean this to be fair.

Today, I will check my Blog List. If I don't see my link there (in very first page), then I will remove it from the list. However, if you still want to have your link here, there are several ways:
  • You can join my Magical Links. You don't need to register. All you have to do is: add your name and your link. It's easy, isn't it? And it's free.
  • Be my Top Commenters. Feel free to leave your comments in my post. But please, do not spam, because I hate spam!
  • Do you have a blog on Blogger / Blogspot or a Google account? If the answer is yes, you can put your profile through my Followers widget. This widget is on the right footer on my blog. Simply click on the Follow this blog link and it will immediately display image of your profile.
  • For my visitors Entrecard enabled, please drop your card here regularly. The benefit is: your link will be displayed at my Top Droppers list. Accidentally, when Google crawl my blog at the same time you drop your card here, your link will also be counted because I have put the Recent Droppers widget on my blog. This widget is in the right footer above the Followers widget.
As I mentioned before, my blog is NOFOLLOW FREE. This means that my blog is a DOFOLLOW Blog. Any comments will also be followed. So, your link will be counted in the Google search.

It is not hard to have your link here, right?

Feedjit Live Traffic Map

Feedjit's live traffic map shows the geographic locations of the last 100 visitors to your blog or website on a small map. If you move your mouse over any point on the map the city and country for that visitor will be displayed.

The map is updated in real-time and a new point will appear on it as visitors arrive on your blog. The live traffic map only shows the city your visitors are in.

The small map shows the 100 most recent visitors to your website. The large map shows the 1000 most recent visitors. They designed it this way because the small map is too crowded with more than 100 points and the data becomes meaningless.

The larger map has more space so they made the limit 1000 to give you more data.

FriendFeed To Keep Up To Date

FriendFeed enables you to keep up-to-date on the web pages, photos, videos and music that your friends and family are sharing. It offers a unique way to discover and discuss information among friends.

Sign up for FriendFeed, invite some friends, and get a customized feed made up of the content that your friends shared — from news articles to family photos to interesting links and videos. FriendFeed automatically imports shared stuff from sites across the web, so if your friend favorites a video on YouTube, you get a link and a thumbnail of the video in your feed.
And if your friend likes a news story on Digg, you get a link in your feed. FriendFeed makes all the sites you already use a little more social.

It’s also fast and easy to start discussions around shared items. On FriendFeed, you and your friends contribute to a shared stream of information — information that you care about, because it's from the people that you care about.

You don't need to install anything to use FriendFeed. But if you already use Facebook, you can add their Facebook application to connect your Facebook profile to all the other products you use around the web. You can also view your FriendFeed in your iGoogle homepage or read it in a feed reader. If you make your FriendFeed publicly visible (kind of like a blog that writes itself), you can embed your feed in your home page or blog.

Check their FAQ for more information. You can get continuous updates from the FriendFeed team on the FriendFeed blog.

I Have Been Tagged

When I read my shoutbox, I was surprised. I have been tagged by Bryan in his blog post. Thank you Bryan! It's kind of homework for me but this is a good way to share a little bit about me.

The rules are:

* Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
* Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
* Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
* Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I will not break the rules. So, let's start:

1. I wear earring in my left ear.
2. I love black and dark. I feel comfort in the dark.
3. I have a dark past, but I wish to have a better life in the future.
4. Sometimes I play drums, bass or guitar, but I'm not a pro.
5. I usually listen to Death Metal music before I go to sleep. Obituary is my favorite band.
6. I am afraid of ghosts, but I like to watch horror or ghost movies.
7. I can not swim. So help me if I'm drowning, OK.

That's it. Now, it's time to tag the next 7 blogs:
