I Love to Entrecard!

I really love Entrecard. I learn new things everyday. I learn things I didn't even know I wanted to learn! I try to be faithful about my drops. To be truthful, my drops border on addiction. Yesterday I had my very first 300 drop day! ( Insert " Happy Dance" Here) That is almost impossible in my world because, you see, I like to actually look at and read other people's blogs! I am not a drop and run entrecarder. I can hardly live a day without visiting Daisy the Curly Cat and her brother Harley. If you you haven't been to this blog and you love cats it's a must see! Makes me smile everyday. Of course I love to drop in on all the talented jewelry makers, crafters and hobbiests! There are some amazing artisians out there. So many great contests and givaways to find too!

One of the things that really helped me with the speed of my drops is simply this. I ditched Internet Explorer. I use Foxfire now. I love Foxfire. It's faster and more dependable. More secure too. I don't like change and I have used IE for years. When I found Entrecard, IE started giving me more than my usual problems when doing drops. I had heard great things about Foxfire so I decided, what the heck, I'll give it a try and I have not looked back since. It takes me 1/2 the time to do my drops with out all the IE crashes. So if you are hedging and him hawing about switching, don't be scared. Just do it! Still keep your IE, but just use Firefox as your browser. (My techie geek friend told me this) He also told me that Safari is great too!
Happy Entrecarding and a BIGThank You to all of you who drop in to visit me!

I like to read, too. Makes the 300 tough, but you'll find it gets faster as so many bloggers don't update very often.

I did the same thing and made my first 300 drop day recently too. IE is useless!

You didn't mention whether you use Entrebar in Firefox. If you don't, get it from EC. Your drops will go even faster. Da Old Man is right. I get through 300 drops every single day because I have about 200 people in my favorites and I can tell right away whether they've updated posts. If not, then that's a drop and run until the next day.

I just discovered that as well!~ I have foxfire and flock. I've been using flock mainly but it shut down the other day so I opened up foxfire and discovered it was much faster to drop from there. yahoo.
Truthfully I'm a runner but if something catches my eye I stop to read...Nice blog btw!
