B-bye Entrecard

I will be leaving Entrecard May 5th. Please become a follower and bookmark my site so you don't miss out on anything at Lola's Diner.

Why am I leaving? Too many of my blog pals have been getting hit with Trojans and Viruses while visiting sites through Entrecard to drop. I don't think I even have that many blog pals, and when I'm hearing it this often amongst a small group, that means the danger is too much to ignore. Entrecard is ignoring the problem, so it's time to leave.

Yes, I will miss the traffic, but it hasn't been that much lately anyway. Time to cut the apron strings and be free.

The other 2 blogs I own will also be leaving Entrecard, so please visit them, follow them and bookmark them so you don't miss out.

You are NOT going to miss the traffic, Lola. The only traffic I lost in the transition was the quick droppers and that was it! Wait until you see how liberating it is to be free of all that dropping.

I never fully quit EC--I kept the account open out of curiosity to see what would happen. I took off my widget on 3/1 and I am averaging at least 20 drops a day on my blog--STILL!!! Tell me there isn't something fishy if the same folks are dropping on a widget that doesn't exist. It's a freaking scam.

I am with you on the whole EC thing! I really don't drop anymore and the traffic from there is minimal and I am fine with just hanging with my boggy pals!!

I hope you are all well! Maybe this summer I will come up to visit some of you all!

I am thinking of taking it off my site, too. I don't really get any traffic from it, and the blogs I used to consistently drop on I just visit on my own. Not worth the hassle of having it on my page anymore!

Hi,
It has been awhile since I visited many blogs.
Decided to do a quick visit to say hello to as many blogs as possible tonight..
Nice to visit your blog its been ages, I am sure it will not be so long again especially now my life is getting better.
I went out this afternoon for the first time since 19 August 2009 and it was brilliant.
Lovely to feel my world getting bigger again after all this time in bed.
Have a good evening and a pleasant day tomorrow.
Love,
Herrad

You won't miss it at all! I stopped it about a month ago. Love not dropping 300 blogs a day. I can actually focus on finding goodies to post on my blog, and do reviews. Oh and play more FB games.

Enjoy the freedom that is coming up!

How funny, I just dropped it last night, too! BOTH of my computers crashed while doing it and I spent all day today trying to get them going again. I also found it funny that my post for Saturday says almost the exact same thing as you. Freaky...it's like one scary brain we are sharing, my friend!

today was my first Ecard-less day and it was so weird to NOT be clicking and dropping. but very freeing!

I stopped regularly dropping months ago. I've left the wiget up and maybe drop 50-100 ecs a week. You get so much time back in your day. haven't decided to quit altogether but if this virus stuff keeps up I will.

Of course now you will have more time to spend over at Tribal Blogs. Our toolbar doesn't have those kinds of blogs in it so it's safe. Plus it's so much fun over there. You need to visit more often, you are missing a lot of great stuff.

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

I think I'm leaving too. In just one week, I've had two malware warnings pop up, which is weird because I usually stuck to only the blogs I know are safe. The warnings came from blogs I'd favorited in the past, so I'm not sure what's up with that.

I don't get as much traffic as I used to, due to my dropping a lot less cards these days.

I think it's bye-bye EC for me.

Funny, I read this when I was dropping and guess what happened on the next batch..malware alert! I had to force quit- twice.

My theory is that the 12 year olds who are now running Landon's pride and joy are NOT dropping and don't really give a crud. I've had several encounters with them that just left me questioning if there are any IQ's above 70 over there.

Yesterday I had one big time. had to close down the internet link and do a complete scan. I have noticed my droppers are mostly sales sites. I am not dropping that much and when I did, the amount I received back did not measure up to my hard work. I really do not use entercard site for dropping any more. I use the Adgitize site mostly and the CMF Spikes. I also noticed the amount of visitors from ad placements on EC are not that great either. I have tried to place ads on the new site but they never approve them , it just sits in the que! So I am rethinking My options also.
