I get a lot of traffic via entrecard and blog catalog. I only implemented these services about a week or two ago. I was only on mybloglog but now i rarely sign in mybloglog. It doesn’t hurt signing up for new services or site. If you find that you don’t like it, you can always remove the code or ad. But if you don’t put it up, you’ll never reap the potential benefits.
I spend a lot of time just thinking about my next post. Instead of looking at a blank computer screen, start joining sites that you put off. It’s detrimental to keep moving and doing stuff with your blog. Don’t think that you have to have quality content before monetizing your site. Put it up in the beginning. Don’t think to the same traffic generating strategies, try new things.
Don’t be a perfectionist cause it will only slow your progress. The internet moves fast and if you wait until you have a perfect version to launch your product or service, it will most likely be too late. Some other guy with a less then perfect idea already launched it. I think in the internet game, it’s more important to be first then to be the best.
