My blog was recently approved and listed in the Blog Explosion Blog Directory. It has been great to surf other member's blog and at the same time, generate free traffic to my blog too. The feedback was overwhelming. It's a good start for a newbie like me who has just started to join the blogging community last week.
In BE, the general rule is you need to surf member blogs for 30 seconds to earn credits and click the number indicated on the top left display. The great part of BE is that it randomly gives away Mystery Credits (bonus traffic) when you are surfing other member blogs too. There was one time I earned 50 bonus credits while surfing.
I've also discovered that one of the most popular services of BE is the pinging service. With one-click over at Ping My blog, your blog is updated on multiple search engines.
I'm having so much fun exploring the world of blogosphere. If you haven't sign up with BE, get started. I'm sure you'll love it as much I do.
