The Entrecard Toolbar Rocks!

Mozilla FirefoxImage via WikipediaHi all…

I’ve been using Entrecard for quite a while now. And on my main blog, I think I’ve met some great new friends and blogs via their service. But one of the things I’ve always struggled with is getting a number of “drops” per day.

Yes, there are some options…

  • You can bookmark 100s of Entrecard sites and open up multiple pages in Firefox or IE and go through them a chunk at a time.¬† I have about 150 blogs marked this way and was lucky to get through 50-100 a day.
  • You can use the EntreCard Browser from CreateIf. But it gets tiring hitting 100-300 blogs one at a time via this tool.
  • And now we have the Entrecard Toolbar from Entrecard itself! Yay!

Entrecard Toolbar

This cool new tool¬† does a number of things that I had to go through the Entrecard dashboard to do before…

  • Allows me to switch between my blogs MUCH easier
  • Allows me to [gasp] see how many drops I’ve done
  • Allows me to grab 10 Entrecard sites at a time from a number of categories, including the favorite sites I’ve marked in my Entrecard profile
  • Allows me to buy ads on sites
  • Allows me to add new favorites to my Entrecard profile…

Get the picture? This thing does everything BUT actually do the drops for you.

I’m a big fan. Thanks Entrecard guys!

You can read more about it and download it from the Entrecard blog here.

StumbleUpon

Hey all…

If you haven’t “stumbled” upon StumbleUpon.com and need another way to fill your days with interesting websites, this is the place to go… Check out http://www.stumbleupon.com or StumbleUpon My StumbleUpon Page

When you install their Firefox toolbar, you immediately can bounce, or “stumble,” into a series of websites in categories you choose for your profile. There’s more categories than you can shake a stick at and you always end up somewhere interesting. I did see a few duplicates, but that’s to be expected when everyone on the web is finding cool resources. There’s bound to be a few dupes.

I think I got sucked into the internet for a good couple of hours today and found a variety of topics — some funny, some thought provoking, some cool — and there were also some where I was left scratching my head or just moving on to the next one without much of a look.

So check it out and let me know what you think!
