Hundreds... Thousands... Millions...

Last week the folks at entrecard emailed a notice that they had uploaded a post to their blog inviting members to "guest blog" about the program.

I've shared many of my EC experiences with you here on this little blog of mine.

The entrecard society is a "world within a world" which has its own particular set of rules. For example, there are blogs you can spend a thousand or more EC's to advertise on, while there are blogs you can place an advert on for 64EC or 8Ec or even 2EC...

EACH of the two blogs shown in the screengrab carries a "PR 3" - here are real-time SEO stats (PR, Google info,
Yahoo info, Msn info, Alexa ranking, Today Unique visitor, Today Page view, Yesterday Unique visitor, Yesterday Page view, Total Unique visitor, Total Page Views and Users Online)

SEO Stats powered by MyPagerank.NetSEO Stats powered by MyPagerank.Net

Which one is the better one to advertise on? (OK to leave your thougts in 'comments' below!)

My advice: enjoy entrecard, accept it for what it is with all of its nuances, idosyncracies and limitations. Should you grow tired of dropping EC's --- STOP! Leave the widget and whenever you run into an EC onanother blog, "drop." It won't hurt to take a "vacation" from dropping once in awhile! Here'sthe email EC sent me:

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
