Blog Village Entrecarders?

If you are member of the Blog Village Top List and also a member of Entrecard, you may be interested in this:

If you wish to be listed on the Blog Village Entrecarders, please leave your blog name and URL in a comment to this post. I will collate and post blogroll on this blog. Also, if there is enough interest, I will add a symbol to your blog profile so that Blog Village members will know who is an Entrecard member.

If you are not a member of Entrecard, I would recommend you take the tour and see if you might like to at least try this viral marketing tool.

If you are interested, please read this post on CoolAdzine for Marketers about common mistakes made by Entrecarders.

You will need a 125x125 pixel ad. Marie has been kind enough to set up a gallery of free pixel ads. You will just need to add your blog name using a text editor on the site.

Here is a getting started guide.

This is just a possible way to increase your readership. I have no ulterior motive to recommending Entrecard as there is no referral program.

You must be a member in good standing to be a member of Blog Village Entrecarders

* Warning * Reset * Warning *

Hello, y'all. The next reset is 8/2/2008. Please remember to click in from your blog. Last month, I know that I clicked at least 2 times for each blog before they showed up. If it happens to you this month, please leave a comment here rather than sending me an email. I will check with the Top List Admin and see what is going on.

I have decided to be more relaxed about blogs not clicking in. I will purge the list about every six months for people who have not clicked in for two months. I will still be checking for the voting link periodically, as time allows.

To your success!

Update on Serena : She Passed 7/12/2008

Serena is a 3 year old child with neuroblastomaS E R E N A


Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

Edna St. Vincent Millay


This is one blogger who wishes she could have done more. Many bloggers tried, but the funds raised were minuscule compared to the need! Go with God, Serena.

Update on List and Admin

Just so y'all know, there has been a deluge of spam blogs (SPLOGS) applying for membership. Also, brand new blogs with 51 posts on one day and none of them original content, blogs in foreign languages, and blogs just not meeting the requirements.

Here are the requirements as they stand when people join:

Rules Only ENGLISH language blogs may join. Your blog should be an established blog that is updated frequently with original content.

No blog titles or post titles containing profanity, no pictures of a sexual or suggestive nature, no popunders, popovers or redirects allowed. No duplicate content, illegal downloads, outdated content or spyware.

We do require a GRAPHIC voting link back to us from the blog that you are submitting. Install the BlogVillage voting graphic on your blog. You must vote for your blog by clicking on the GRAPHIC voting link on your blog--at the first of each month--to keep your blog active.

There have been some great blogs apply, but then they do not put the voting banner on their blog. I have a limited amount of time to help these new people. Is there anyone who would volunteer to help the newbies? I would just shoot the newbies blog URL and email to you and you could follow up? If not, I will struggle through as best I can. I am having a major health problem and will not be around as much as I have been. Until I have been on the medication, I do not know what to expect. Any help you could give would be great.

Top List Will Reset Tonight

Next Reset of the Blog Village Top List is Tonight!

Any questions, please leave them here in comment form or check the blog archives for an answer. I will be checking in on this blog this evening.

I sent a message to everyone who had not disabled ADMIN mail and was not showing any clicks in for June with a reminder and the July 5 deadline.

Between July 5 and July 8, I will delete all blogs that have no clicks in for July unless I have been contacted by the blog owners.

To a smooth reset and a better month ahead.
