Hallelujah, Hallelujah - this blog is OUT of GAS !

can you join me in a collective Hallelujah !

I have finally made a concrete positive decision on how to deal with Entrecard. it took just one comment to make that happen; and voila today it happens.

this is the comment left on the previous post, which was all about the ec drop and roll problem.

I can't believe you think of this as "racism"....FYI, dropping by is "normal".....and dropping EC is normal.That's what you get for being an EC member. Entrecard really promotes traffic but produces high bounce rate---meaning, droppers just drop cards and spend 3 seconds in ur blog, never read and never comment. So what? That's the way it works. If you don't want this, you might as well get out of EC .
Another thing is , no one is obligated to leave a comment nor read a blog post. You can never force anyone who drops by at your blog to spend his time reading. If he does not care, so what?
You , as a blogger, should have the responsibility to improve your content and devise ways to make anyone drop by ---not just drop by but read your content and leave comment.
There is no blogging rule that exists in this world that says "everyone who drops by should leave a comment".
Bloggers have different purposes why they blog. So if one just wants to make money, he may never care to read ur blog. If he just wants reciprocal traffic, he may never leave a comment. If he wants commenters, he may comment in other blogs to encourage commenting on his blog.
As I've said, there are no blogging rules. Each one to his own.
But I tell you, if you just want everybody who drops by at your blog ---either get out of EC or either strive hard to encourage commenting.
Just like me, if I drop an EC on a blog and the blog post caught my attention, I would read . If I have something to say, I comment. If not, I don't. If I don't have the time to comment I don't. I only comment on blog posts that interest me, relevant to me or something where I am interested to comment on. If not , then I don't.
So don't feel upset about it. It's just the way it is. If you don't like the way it is, then don't blog.

Now First thing I noticed is that this writer begins his post with the accusation of racism. Hmmmm ? where did I read that before,
My blogger Vhing had sent me a message about this Bad Guy writing harsh words and racist comments about my entrecard drops. I was fuming mad when I read your post. You just wrote insensible and irrational method as a blogger and maybe, you don't understand what is EC all about.

If you want a blog purely for your friends, then keep it private and remove your EC card badge in your blog for your peace of mind. This is because you hate people who just drop their cards and without leaving comments. That is a very silly, immature behaviour. In my opinion, I don't care people not leaving comments and there are reasons for that either they don't like the contents and have no time to leave a comment. But I returned a comment only if they left a message. But if not, it doesn't bother me at all and I will be thankful for their time in dropping a card or passing by.

I'm a top commenter to blogs that I like to comment and the contents that would interest me.

And also, you also left harsh comments to all Filipinos. You said you are not a PINAY (of course because pinay is a female term) and you love pinays (do you gf's?), I don't think so. You did the same to others. This is not all about blogging but you are downgrading us and racist.

(end of clipping)

This false claim of Racism made me so mad, that i decided I had to seperate myself from people who would lie and play with my reputation in this silly and very immature manner. So if you missed anything, let me sum it up in a simple sentence - Droppers Have a Ball.


I Love My Visitors, The Folks Who Appreciate MY BLOG, and Realize that This is a TWO WAY Communication Vehicle; Not a place where people invent half truths to blow their own heads up.

Good Morning..I am here...I will be back:) is a good thing to spread around :)

When most people hear or see the word racist, their heads start spinning out of control and it conjures of feelings, images and thoughts that often have absolutely NOTHING to do with the issue at hand. Before you know it, a steam roller comes through plowing down the character of others based on half-truths. I think 'racist' is too strong of a word to use in this situation.

Many people who visit your blog know that you are a person who's not SHY when it comes to expressing your OWN opinions. And in my OPINION...there's nothing wrong with that.

Racists, racism, racist attitudes. . .are just stinking words and symbols which are used to separate the human race. Since we live on the SAME planet and breathe the SAME air, it seems we'd be further along by now.

In my business, I've gotten several emails from folks accusing me of being a racist. But when people see what I do, they only see HALF of the story.

In closing, it should not be a crime to ASK for what you want, NOR is it racist to ASK for what you want, AND I wouldn't let a few people disturb my peace of mind by calling me one when I know otherwise.

Keep doing your thing!

Err! I just spent 20 minutes o n your sites reading your declaration of war,lol, and you took off the name/url option of commenting. Now I have to use my google account blog and not the real blog.

Shelly said...

Love it! I also wondered about the emergence of Joro blogs. They came out of nowhere and I will get 5 or 6 drops back-to-back in my inbox (not sure how that is done). I dropped back the first couple days and then would just pick one. I drop for 3 blogs and only drop 100 for each and sometimes on the same blogs, but mine never show up back-to-back in my inbox (I've dropped on myself just to see, lol). Anyway. Sorry all this crap had to happen to you. I think you're doing the right thing in dropping from favs.

Good for you for taking a stand!

Daisy Bookworm said...

Wow. Those messages that you put in here from those other bloggers were pretty harsh. I wish I could say that I can't believe people would do this, but unfortunately that's not true. I've had way too many experiences with people being mean just so they can start things that they later don't want to deal with.

Brava for your decision to take the initiative with this matter and change the way that you blog. EC has some major problems but it is a great way to test the waters of getting new readers.

Your blog is very interesting and engaging and I'm terribly sorry that I haven't commented before to let you know that I thought so.

As someone who is still relatively new to EC I'm reading these posts about drop & runs with great interest. I've been dropping from my inbox because I felt rude not returning drops.

I have met so many wonderful bloggers that have high quality blogs and regularly comment. At the other extreme are the poor quality blogs, which to be honest I don't know how they get into EC since I was under the impression that each blog was screened before it was approved.

I'm especially concerned about people with 6 blogs (even if the content were not the same) no one can properly visit blogs while dropping if they are dropping for so many blogs. I think that the EC approval process needs to get better, and should be especially strict for each additional blog that a blogger submits.

You've given me a lot to think about, and I won't feel guilty over not returning every drop from now on. Thanks, Tina

Hmmm, sounds like Anonymous had a burr under the saddle for sure. Why can't people just play nice?! And that's gutless to leave such comments as "Anonymous" - for Pete's sake, if you're going to go to the trouble to type it you might as well OWN it!

RE Ausetkmt said...

Brenda, you know you right girl.
some folks have no manners at all, even in the cyber world. it's such a shame that ec has been reduced to this type of character. we will never have to be regarded that way, thank god.

huggies to the Llama Posse'
thanks for the comment

RE Ausetkmt said...

Tina, you know anytime somebody has six blogs, they are cashing in ec's. why else would they do it ? did you ever take a look at his blogs ?
all I can say is, not like any I've ever seen.
and why would he make those false claims against me when all I asked him to do is pick one card to drop, instead of milking me like a goat.

I hope this taught you a thing or two sweets.

thanks for the comment, and nice to meet you - yes I'll be visiting you real soon - count on it.

RE Ausetkmt said...

Thank You Susan. somebody had to put their foot down, and I guess it was just my time. LOL

RE Ausetkmt said...

@Daisy Bookworm, you know you're right. it was mean of them. but then again, that just goes to show you what kinda people you are dealing with; on the other side of the screen, sometimes.

everybody is not nice, and most people will pretend; to get away with what they want. that appears to be the case here, that made him scream so madly at me. I took away his ec milk.

somefolks need to learn how to get a fricken job instead of pimpin other peoples blogs, for their beer. it's the Vhing connection that most puzzles me. why would she do such a vile thing ? she has scarred her reputation with this and she has four blogs - she is also a Blog Milker.

if the truth were to be told I could say very honest things about them that may sound mean; but I will hold my self to a higher standard and tell them to get away, because if they dont' I will take care of them. never doubt that. I have the resources to reach out and put them right back in touch with reality, if I choose to.

they should be glad that I have decided to be done with them, instead.

take this as a lesson sweety, never put a new puppy in your lap, or they will lick your mouth.

thanks for the very nice comment, and I'll be seeing you very soon - for sure. and please don't be a stranger.

RE Ausetkmt said...

@Shelly, Yes you are Right - they did come out of the woodwork suddenly; which is why everybody is scratching their heads trying to figure out who this joro is.

and let me ask you a question - what MAN do you know that has Six Blogs about Stuffed Animals ?

and to think I thought I was a bitch.. ohhh never baby. go see the pics for yourself, so you know I am not lying, or making any false claims about him.

thanks for your comments, and please come anytime you are welcomed here always.

RE Ausetkmt said...

@Hey Mr Dilema, you know you a mess. I had to change the setting to be able to moderate it. the annonymous comment came when I had no moderation so you know I Had to Add it.

so what did you think of the declaration of war ? is it worthy of a Blues Blog ? do you think I pitched woo in the right key ? or should I have gotten a little grittier like say, Koko Taylor on they asses - Real EEEEEEVILLLL...

Thanks for the Comment, and hey come more often as you know you see me all the time up in ya business.

say what did you do about the Amp ? the blond one ?

RE Ausetkmt said...
