Many of the other blogger are giving away EntreCard Credits (EC). (For those of you who have never heard of EntreCard, here is the condensed version of what its all about.)
It's your internet business card. It's a way for you to advertise your blog on other members sites for free by using a digital business card. Advertising is bought using credits which you have to earn. They can be earned by visiting other members sites and "sending them" your digital business card. You also earn credits when people visit your site and send you their business card. CLICK HERE to find out more about Entrecards
