Did you know that there is an easy way to show support to your fellow Bloggers EVERYday? It only takes a Click-A-Day on a few buttons that are probably already familiar to you from some of your favorites sites but do you know what they are all about? Let me take a minute and give you a bit of info…
These buttons are Voter or Endorsement based and by giving them a Click-A-Day you can help support your favorite Blogger friends and their sites. Each click can help their site gain rank, increase their influence, earn points and at times even become eligible for Authorship and Review Opportunities plus Giveaways. How great is that? Plus if you have any of the same buttons on your Blog giving support often times leads to receiving support.
In using the term ‘Click-A-Day‘ I am simply referring to a site which allows a Visitor to vote Once A Day for a Blog they are visiting. To Click takes almost no time and the buttons are usually set as “target-blank” which allows them to open in a new window upon being clicked. This lets your Reader keep their place on your site and still vote for you in a new tab or window. These sites require no further information or entry from the Voter. Merely Click and a Vote is entered for that site.
