Thursday Two Questions Meme - Entrecard & Adgitize
There is going to be a rant along with two questions.
You'd think I would know better by now. I recently created Collectibles Mercantile which I made to help spread the word on my new eBay store of the same name. It has been quite a while that I've had to use any of these promotional sites to advertise a blog. I no longer use any of these on Poetic Shutterbug. Since my Collectibles Mercantile is so new, I thought why not try Entrecard again. I was obviously having a memory lapse and warped sense of judgment when I had that thought.
I opened an account there again and started dropping. Lo and behold first 15 minutes of dropping and I get a virus - a trojan horse which closed my browser, redirected me to other sites and basically caused complete havoc on my computer. Luckily I have virus protection and was able to clean it up. Harsh memories of the EC virus infested blogs surfaced and I thought to myself, it just isn't worth the stress. I transferred the credits I had to a friend and canceled the account with Entrecard. I am using Adgitize on Collectibles Mercantile but am being very careful as to where I drop. Adgitize is much more safe than any of the other sites I've seen.
By the way, check out my new blog and follow if you so choose. We'll be having a giveaway soon.
So here are my two questions:
1. When trying to promote a new blog which free promotion sites do you use?
2. Which ones work for you?
