Before I went into my two-month hiatus, I read about the launching of a new social network for bloggers called “Entrecard“. I forgot where I first read about it but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to know or learn more about it. Finally, when I got back online, I was able to read some reviews and posts about this new social network. I liked the idea and it caught my interest so I decided to sign up like two weeks ago.
For the benefit of those who don’t know what Entrecard is, here’s a little info about this new social blog network:
Entrecard is a social network of bloggers that is based on the concept of community, sharing and helping out each other. Entrecard is the brainchild of 22-year old Internet Entrepreneur Graham Langdon. It was launched November of 2007 during the Blog World Expo. Entrecards are 125×125 cards or banners that blogger’s digital business cards which they use for networking and promoting themselves in the community.
It took me more than a week before I found time to install the code and display Entrecard into my sidebar. If you can see, it’s located in the left sidebar of the index page under the name “Featured Blog“. After installing it, I started familiarizing myself with Entrecard’s dashboard and figured out how the stuff works. I also spent some time visiting blogs with Entrecards and dropping my cards so I could earn points. A few minutes later, I received my dropped card and advertisement offer. I also edited my profile photo to make it look more presentable. I’m having fun visiting other blogs and dropping off my card. It is a fun and cool way of networking and promoting your blog.
If you’re a Pinoy blogger who has Entrecard and would like to network with other Pinoy bloggers, check out PinoyBlogero’s list of Pinoy blogs in Entrecard.
