So Long, Farewell.....

I quit!
Yep, stick me with a fork, I'm done!

After almost a year of click, click, clicking, I have canceled my account with Entrecard. So, to all you good people who actually stopped, dropped, read and commented - I thank you! I do hope you will continue to visit me and I promise I'll visit you as well. But, to those of you that just stopped, dropped and rolled on out of here - see ya!

What a load off my shoulders, not to mention my wrist. This will now free me up an hour and a half each and every day. This is time that will be much better spent visiting blogs and commenting. Look out, here I come!

  1. I never did Entrecard, but have read the many comments about how disappointed bloggers are with it.

    I'm glad you have set yourself free! Another hour and a half? That's the equivalent of one and a half Law & Order eppies!

    I'm soooo happy for you! *dun, dun*

  2. FREEDOM ROCKS!

    During that 1.5 hour, you can exercise, clean your house, file your paperwork, prepare a lavish meal.....

    Sorry. I got carried away.

  3. Maybe that extra time will be better spent reading my 500+ post. You know you want to. Now you can!

  4. i have also been thinking about dropping entrecard. i usually only visit my blogroll and rarely use entrecard. i haven't advertised on anyones blog for a long time now and probably won't. i much rather spend my time reading and commenting on all of my favorites than just dropping a card on a blog i don't care to read.

    have an awesome day...hugz!

  5. Hi MeMe - Well you know how I am - I didn't know what that was in the first place - but whatever it is - and the fact that you are no longer doing it - whatever it is - I'm thrilled you feel so free! I also like your comment about whoever has dropped, rolled out of here, see ya - I'm so with you on that! I no longer go to blogs of bloggers who don't visit/comment on mine! Let me tell you, a HUGE time saver!!!!

  6. @ Quirky - Free at last, free at last!

    @ Geek girl - That's not exactly how I thought I spend this extra time I have now, but thanks for the suggestions.

    @ Don - Are you offering up a challenge? Let me think about it, I'll get back to ya later.

    @ PJ - Oh, I hear ya. I have met some new friends through EC; but, honestly, it was just too much time out of my day.

    @ suZen - EC was great when I first started blogging for driving traffic to my blog. I'm with you - this will be a huge time saver.

    @ Christiejolu - That's okay, go to entrecard.com if you are interested in learning more.

  7. A wise choice. I found it was all so time-consuming for little in return. And half the time it would screw up technically. I think blogrolls are far more productive. Or dinner rolls.

  8. What's an "Entrecard"? I thought I'd experienced every addiction there is, but must've missed that one. Anyway, kudos for kicking the habit - or whatever it was. (wink)

  9. @ Dufus - Yeah, I should have bailed within the first 90 days, but I kinnda became addicted. Pass the rolls, please.

    @ Marvin - Oh, thanks. Entrcard is a bit addictive, but without reward. Go figure.

  10. I'll add you to my list & check in ever so often, I like reading your blog.

  11. Entrecard is a tribute to the poetry of Charles (Hungry Chuck) Bukowski whose epitaph reads: Time was made to be wasted. Or if it doesn't, it does now.

    If I didn't have Entrecard, I'd probably already be blind.

  12. I hear you. I only drop about 30 cards per day, an many are on my blogroll anyway. I may be removing that little widget soon too. All the best. Tina

  13. I do and I have left it before. I get bored and can't remember where everyone is so I go back to it. I really need to use a reader. Enjoy your freedom.

  14. @ Valdese Blogger - Thanks, I really apperciate that.

    @ Faustroll - You quote Bukowski? LOL! Really, I am a fan of his.

    @ Tina - Thanks, Tina, I'll see you around.

    @ Jen - LOL, yeah, a reader would be good. I'm wondering just how long it will be before I end up back there.

  15. I agree and visiting blogs can really be fun.

  16. @ Gayle - Yes, I do.

    @ Dorothy - Amen!

  17. Thank you and either way...I'll be here for my daily read anyway. Don't forget your friends!

  18. I really have no idea what this means.

    But hey, yeah for freedom! :D

  19. @ Buggys - You are most welcome. I knew I could count on you.

    @ adrienzgirl - You are not alone.

  20. Looks like the comments are running 50/50 50% never heard of EC the other 50% agreeing with you. I think everyone makes a choice how to first build up readership for a new blog. Well that is people who learn why to build a readership in the first place :-)

    But you're right EC is good as are the other two main traffic sites (I won't mention them) for one main reason and that is to build traffic and get to meet some really nice people when you first start out.

    You did that and you have an absolutely wonderful blog, that has gained it's following and I believe will continue to grow.

    Yes that time saved can be put to new uses and can see the passion you have for blogging, so it definitely won't go to waste. You can count on me as being a regular, regardless what widgets you have.

    Enjoy your new found free time and your weekend.

  21. I don't even know what it is, but congratulations! I'm truly happy for you, I guess.

  22. Thanks for the heads-up. One less mistake for me to have to make and learn from myself. Maybe I should just follow you around for the rest of my life.
