I haven't had a blog for long, but I got Entrecard immediately. It was pretty and I had a vague notion that it would bring traffic to my blog, which seemed like a Good Thing.
Someone old me that they weren't sure of the traffic's quality but that made no sense to me at first. Then I figured out that folks who read the blog were high quality and folks who spend .5 seconds on the blog to drop their entrecard were slightly lower quality traffic (can you hear the pc oozing from my pores?) and folks that read and comment once in awhile are the creme de la creme of the blogosphere! (My webspeak improves hourly.)
So then today I get this email that Entrecard has paired up with SezWho to get folks commenting. As I gather, it's a rating system to reward commenters with Entrecard points and thoughtful commenters with more Entrecard points.
Well, we'll see how it works.
We all love comments don't we? Anything to combat that blogging in a vacuum feeling? The only thing worse than a commentless blog is a spammed blog. It's just rude. And disheartening. And kind of icky in a mashed up smelly meat covered in slime and a tin can way.
But just as blogging is a learned behavior, commenting is a learned behavior. I look forward to learning how to do a better job of it myself!
One more thing. I'm having a time getting it installed though it seems like the easiest thing in the world. On the plus side the SezWho support team is quick and professional. Thank you SezWho.
And thank you, each one of you who read this and other posts and comment once in awhile!
