Entrecard… Is This The End??

Yes! For me this is the end of my Entrecard dealings. It was fun while it lasted. I met a lot of interesting people and viewed hundreds of great and not so great blogs.

I got to share the beautiful picture of my grand baby with many Entrecard users! And yes the Little Princess became the poster child for this blog!
Entrecard as a social networking tool did not really work because the goal was to meet new people and see new blogs but after a while the goal became to drop 300 cards a day. If you are dropping 300 cards a day you do not have the time to actually read all the blogs you come across.

Dropping cards became very time consuming and difficult to do. It became a burden and a chore and all of the fun over time drained away. There were sites that would crash my computer, sites that took forever to load, often requiring a refresh and another wait. There were sites that had the drop box below the fold or hidden between blog post, or buried between numerous side bar advertisements. It all became too much.
With being back in school my 300 cards a day addiction shriveled to 300 per week. Then It slowed to 30 cards per week, then maybe 3 cards a week. If I visit a blog and I happen to see the Entrecard box then I might drop a card if I think about it but more often than not I just bypass it!
Last week I removed the Entrecard drop box from my blog page. I still have a few credits left that I will use up and then I will be done with Entrecard!
To all of those bloggers that I met via Entrecard, if you don’t see me again don’t take it personal because it is not about you! Happy blogging and blessings to you!

Good Bye Entrecard!! It’s been real!

    I am removing mine as well. It became so hard to do the drops daily, and I started feeling guilty not being able to get back to folks like I wanted to. I prefer blog catalog. I am able to get to view more blogs and have met some cool folks. Your grand baby..simply gorgeous

    You are right on time with this. I was contemplating this a few weeks ago. I’m tired of trying to drop on people who have their cards at the bottom of the page or not at all. Don’t be shocked when mine fades to black also. 🙂

    I always wondered what that site was about. Thanks for the heads up; I won't even get started with them. By the way, I'm enjoying my book! Thank you sooo much for hosting the contest.

    Good for you!Sometimes saying Goodbye is necessary for our sanity. When something that was once fun becomes a chore, it's a sign.Time is precious!
