At Melissas Homeschool, you can win a membership for cool Christmas and New Years to print. There is Bingo, Trivia, Trivial Pursuit plus tons more and they can be for family night, parties, or group activities. It is free to enter and one lucky person will win it. At Melissas Jewelry you can win a Pink Tourmaline ring in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. They are free to enter, and you don't have to stand on your head and spit nickels to enter.

Now how about some Linky Love for this blog. Anyone who leaves me a comment with their link will be included in the exchange. You must agree to put a link to this blog on your site. If you don't intend to do it, please don't join in. This is for this blog only, not my others. Anyone who is willing to participate can join.

How about a commenter exchange too? If anyone is interested just leave me a comment and I will add a section for Comment Love. If you want to join in the Comment Love section, you must agree to visiting other members in the Comment Love section and leaving comments, at least once a week.

Advertise Your Blog With Adgitize

I used to be a member at Adgitize, but I just don't have time for all of the sites I used to use. This site is different in that they actually pay you to be a member and support other bloggers. Payout is ten dollars with Paypal. It is easy to do, and if you upgrade you can actually make better money. Like I said I do not use this site anymore, but I was a free member, and made several ten dollar payouts before I stopped using it. If you have a blog, and you need to drive traffic to your site, check out Adgitize. Be sure to read all their FAQ's and terms before signing up, so you know the ins and outs.

Free Traffic To Your Blog With Entrecard

So you got a blog. You did get a blog right? If you didn't, you need to. You can make money from blogging. If you use a free blog like blogger there are not as many options, but there are still a lot of them. Before you can even begin to worry about making money from your blog, you really need to drive some traffic to it first. A flow of steady traffic is best. I will be sharing some of the ones I use, and some I don't, in the coming weeks. You can of course buy traffic if you don't have the time to do the free traffic exchanges. If you use Google Adsense on your blog be sure to read their rules so you don't get yourself into any trouble. Basically you can not pay people to click your Google ads. They need to click them free and clear of their own choice, and interest. So now to Entrecard. Entrecard is a free traffic exchange system. No one is required to view your blog, leave comments, or click ads. If they do click on your blog you have the choice to view theirs back, hence the traffic exchange. You will get a Entrecard widget that you upload to your blog for others to drop on. Once you have earned some Entrecard credits you can use those credits to advertise your blog on other peoples blogs. I have been using Entrecard for two years on all of my blogs, and I have not been given any reason to stop. So click the banner below and start getting yourself some free traffic now.
