Hi my name is Dave and I am an Entreholic.

There I said it. Isn’t that the first step, admitting to your problem. I am addicted to Entrecard. I drop on average of 190 cards per day.carddrops I have book marked groups of 10 blogs into 19 different folders and open each folder to drop cards. I’m going to step this up some and book mark some more.

sunday 002 I use two monitors so I can open up two browsers and have 20 blogs going at a time. I find if I open up two many tabs Firefox gets to slow and eats up way too much memory.

I spend about an hour each day opening all the blogs that I have book marked and dropping cards on them. So far since starting with Entrecard I have dropped 3924 cards. I guess that’s why when a meme for the top card dropper starts I get tagged by so many blogs. So far 14 blogs have tagged me in their meme.

So not only do I have all these book marks I started to do Stumble search’s for blogs that write about Entrecard. I stumble and drop. And most recently I was reading on someone’s blog how they try and see how far the trail goes when you click on the card displayed on you own blog. So I click the card, drop my card and go on to the next blog. So far I have only gone to five other blogs. The fifth blog was a parked page. Be interesting who far you can go down the trail and the different blogs you would come to.

The problem with my card dropping I’m not providing good traffic to all of your blogs. I will stop and read the occasional post from time to time. Especially when I stop at A Strange Life. But I rarely leave any comments. Maybe I should take more time and read all of the great post that I’m just passing by, or maybe click an ad or two. Maybe that would make me feel better for being an Entreholic.

Blogging is all about sharing opinions. Factors like pay per click and other tactics of online marketing such as newsletters or email marketing are less likely to increase the success of your blog. Right after the step of domain registration, It’s more about quality of writings and frequency of updating your blog that gives you the right place in your niche.

    Awwww, you’re just saying that ’cause I was such a bitch on my blog with that meme thing. Personally, I have 10 folders with 20-30 sites each in them. I do comment or stumble on a number of them, and I run the alexia toolbar to help out with their rank. I’m just as bad an Entreholic as anyone. Just meaner. And bitchier. Thanks for the love sweetie pie.

    Congrats for coming out! I wonder how many more of us there are slinking about in the dark, quiet shadow realm of cyber space;-?

    I'm only a 20-30 card a day dropper. I'm just a baby echolic!

    kexbrown, I am also guilty of this (well, it's my boyfriend, not wife).

    That's impressive Dave. No WONDER you are always on my list!

    @kexbrown and Pam Hoffman, usually do all my entrecarding @ nite after my girlfriend goes to work. It's good that she works the nite shift.

    And to all I promise to start commenting and giving the thumbs up on stumble.

    My name is Ray and I am an Entreholic. I am not as bad as you though, I log in and check my dashboard and basically click on the cards in my dashboard and then follow the chain until the end and then repeat with the next card in my dashboard. I do leave comments and stumble sites that I like and bookmark the ones that especially grab my interest. I think this is what the intent of Entrecard is all about, why bother just clicking on sites and not check them out. You never know what you may find.

    I swear my wife thinks I have another woman upstairs with me. She just doesn’t understand why I have to always be dropping business cards. I tell her I will be down in a minute and two hours later I am still dropping cards. But I can quit at any time. 🙂 LOL.

    I believe I found your blog via Entrecard, so it looks like it is working.

    I just dropped my card.

  12. Allyn Paul Avatar

    Well, in the midst of dropping that card, can you click on a Google Adsense box or 2? LOL
    Actually, I am a blogger, but also a reader too, and have found 8 new blogs that I read daily through subscription, so I’d say Entrecard works well.

    Dave- I had to see for myself who kept dropping on my site. Commenting is good Karma. Maybe we’ll all learn a few new things!

    I just joined Entrecard and already I am neglecting my family. I am trying to take the actual time to comment or at least read the blogs I drop cards on and that takes a lot of time since there are so many great blogs out here. My husband is force feeding me wine at the moment hoping to draw me away from here. Like that’s going to happen!!!!

  18. Periapex Avatar

    Wow you’re hard core. I do have to say, though, that EntreCard dropping has cut into my free time.
