I'm Going as Fast as I Can!

I've got my little advertising card running on four blogs right now. How did I do that? Well, I know how; I just click that little green button with the check mark on it as I visit blogs and like what I see. I just don't pay attention to the calendar and actually plan when ads run, fool that I am. Now I have an overflowing Inbox and way too many good things to read!

Thanks to Jean's Musings, who is lamenting the loss of time to blog what with all the Christmas stuff going on;  Uncommon Photographers, who is also lamenting, but this time it's because he's now looking at snow instead of bikini beaches; Functional Shmunctional, who put me on the floor right away with "'Tis the season to lose reason! Fa-la-la La-la la-la La La Pass the drinks and screw the season! Fa-la-la La-la la-la La La;" and the All Arkie Army, who is trumpetting on about a new football coach. Yes, thanks for my very flat ass today!

Did I tell you I like these blogs? Yes, I do. They are great. I do my best to visit them every day to see what they are up to.

Well, these days, I do very little fast. About the only time I can remotely be accused of going fast is when Mother Nature is screaming while I'm driving home. (There's a roll of toilet paper with my name on it! Get there now!) Needless to say, I don't even try to visit 300 blogs a day. Um, not in this lifetime. I get caught up in reading, leaving comments, enjoying the photos and forget that I'm supposed to be doing this quickly. Nah, it wouldn't be fun that way.

I about fell off my chair once again when I ran into a Crotchety Old Man ranting about blogs with so many ads and widgets that no one cares about only to find very little else there (I'm being kinder than he was, heh). Let me add to that those huge snow flakes that fall and crash my browser at most or prevent the Entrecard widget from responding at best. And, that's when I lose my focus altogether and completely forget about getting to all the blogs that visited me today.

So, yep, I started dropping last night at 11 p.m. when the day rolled over to the new one, and yep, I'm still sitting here at 6:30 p.m. today. I'll be here until the day rolls over to a new one too. Hey, you can't accuse me of blowing your pagerank!

Thanks for stopping by today and for visiting some my favorite blogs that brought you here. Take a second or two to notice that the widgets I have here are ones that promote people who read and leave comments and widgets that link to my favorite blogs. Visit some of those blogs and the one on my E widget if you're also not worried about dropping cards and running off. You'll enjoy them all!

Time to take a break and let my cheeks return to their natural form a bit. I'll be back in a little while.

7:45 p.m. - I just had to laugh once again! I was just on a blog reading away when I looked over at the sidebar to see "Click my fish tank." No way! It didn't look like fish - it looked like swimming sperm! No thank you!


  1. Hey thanks for the linkage lovin'! I'm glad you liked my lymric (sp?).

    I know what you mean with the snow thing. UGH!

    I don't even worry about 300. I think the most cards I've ever dropped was MAYBE 200?

  2. HA! Sometimes I even comment and forget to drop my card!! ;)

  3. Hi Theresa,

    I wish you Yuletide Joy and A Blessed New Year together with your family.

    Happy Holidays!

  4. Theresa now you know why I stopped dropping EC!

  5. Entrecard! The joys and the irritations! I've found a lot of wonderful blogs -- too many! -- but also have waded through the sludge of ad-driven drivel. But I'm addicted to the stats and love the connections I've made!

  6. Grandy - It's always a hoot to visit your blog! Oh, I've done the same, comment and forget to drop....

    Fool - Thanks for the holiday wishes, and I return them!

    Mike - I know. I understand. I'm also really glad that you're still coming around.

    Jennifer - You hit the nail on the head. That's why I'm still doing it!

  7. I'm trying to return all the drops and see my faves for both sites every day so it's taking an absurd amount of time.

    I love it, don't get me wrong... but wow. I've added a nice number of sites that I found through entrecard to my feed reader, so that's a nice bonus. ;)

  8. That just might be the thing to do to bypass "the system" without losing touch with good blogs...
