Having a bla.st
Boost Your bla.st
Given that I am cheap with my money, I opted to go with the free card (I like free) but the generous folks at bla.st have a current promotion where they will add value to your account simply by providing a link to their site or a review of the site (ahem, that is one reason why I am writing this post).
After spending a couple of minutes to create an image for my card, I created my account and had my card configured and uploaded in just a few minutes. The site is very easy to use and navigate and seems pretty cool. It is nice right now without too many cards because I am getting pretty good listings without having to pay anything. Eventually, I will drop off the main pages as other people opt to pay for their cards and my cheapness will push me down the list.
As I poked around, I seem to have found one flaw with the cards but I am not complaining. When editing your card options, you can assign your card to categories or tags. According to the instructions, you are limited to 10 categories/tags but the site seems to allow you to enter more. As I said, I am not complaining as it can be beneficial to be listed in more places but it does seem to be a flaw given the note on the site.
