Hey there friends. So I joined a new community not too long ago where you create your own business card and "drop" it off on other blogs that are also members. As you can see on the top right of my page, I have a "blog of the day" with a "drop" sign underneath it. So far, I think it's a great tool to not only check out other blogs but also to expose your blog to others as well. There's also a business sense to it, since this is your business card. Once you join you have the option to promote other blogs on your site and you can promote yours on others. You gain credits by dropping your card and by promoting other blogs. You can then use those credits to buy a spot on another blog to advertise yours.
So far, it's been working great for me. I drop off on sites I think are cool and I'll promote those I think are worthwhile. I've read some negativity regarding this, though. From what I've read, there are people out there that drop away until you've reached your daily limit. I don't think that necessarily bad but if you're just dropping cards for the hell of it, then it's kinda defeating the whole purpose, you know.
I just left a post on their forum for some feedback. Hopefully, I'll get a good grasp on how this works and how I can optimize it's potential. Later!
