My Color and A Not So Hot Summer

I did a little quiz that I found on Melissas Homeschool Blog. She's a regular read of mine. You should check it out. Here are my results:


You are very perceptive and smart. You are clear and to the point and have a great sense of humor. You are always learning and searching for understanding.

Try it yourself. It's not too long. I have to say with my dad being sick this summer and all that still being so uncertain and my neighbor's son dying this week among so many other things I am feeling a bit down today. My daughter Mikayla is drinking this huge container of some horrible medicine to try and clear her out if you know what I mean. She is seeing the GI doc and we are hoping to get this whole thing with her taken care of. I have other personal things going on in my life and any given day I may just be feeling bummed. It all adds up. Today is a bummed day! I need to cheer up and honestly sometimes it seems practically impossible. We all get overwhelmed. I have to study for my finals.

Oh and you know for you Entrecarders out there can I ask a question? Do you comment and participate on every single blog you advertise on? I know I do not. I joined Entrecard to help others promote their blogs and to promote my own. I drop as many cards as I can though I used to always drop 300 on each blog every day. I don't have this time anymore. Regardless I can say without any doubt many who advertise on my blog do not comment and I do not care. I think you should comment and participate only if you feel the need to. I don't want a bunch of forced comments but rather true interest and really I started this blog to share my story. My point is there are some blogs I read but do not feel I have much to say in a comment. I was recently denied an advertisement by one of these sites that I DO read and visit on occasion because I do not comment or contribute. I just want to say that I will now never read, comment OR contribute in any way at all to this site. I found it to be rude, mean and wrong. If anything all this site did was ensure they definitely lost at least ONE reader. I wondered if anything similar has happened to other entrecarders? I found it to be shocking to say the least.

You give your love and friendship unconditionally. You enjoy long, thoughtful conversations rich in philosophy and spirituality. You are very loyal and intuitive.

That was fun.

As for Entrecard, I don't comment on every blog. I will say I've a lot of new friends because of Entrecard. I drop 300 a day so it would be very difficult to comment on each and every blog. My advertisers I don't either. I probably should though.

Have a better day Sandi. :)

Hi Sandi i have had that happen to me before also. I dont give them any attention because if you let them get to you then they think they have won. I will have to try this test maybe my color would be blue with purple dots LOL. Happy Wednesday my dear friend. I am waiting for you next video. I want to hear that great voice of yours.

Really fun! Thanks for sharing!!

Thanks for taking the color test, and sorry your life is so stressful right now. There are several blogs on Entrecard I will no longer visit for various reasons. I try to visit those that purchase advertising from me, and that I purchase from. I refuse to leave comments, when I either have no useful knowledge of the topic, or two they only approve comments that agree with them anyway. Why waste my time.

I don't comment on every blog either. I haven't been returning drops as much as usual, and tonight I thought I'd catch up. Your blog #198 at the moment (I'm returning a month's worth), and honestly at least 100 of those blogs is a blur. I have read a good many, but even the ones I read I don't always comment on because I can't relate. For instance, I read a funny post tonight from someone who went to BlogHer. I didn't go so I really couldn't add anything other than I'm glad you had fun. I didn't want to do that--kind of seems like I'm begging for a link back--so I said nothing at all. Ditto on a funny post from a homeschool mom's blog. I enjoyed it, but unless I wanted to make a joke about homeschooling my dogs, I didn't have anything to add.

So far, I haven't had anyone reject me that rudely, but honestly, I haven't bought that many ads either. I'm sure it's only a matter of time though before it happens.

If EC does implement that whole algorithm thing, I'm afraid everyone is going to see the kind of comments they don't want, the spammy, "Nice blog. Have a good day," kind of things. They're the blog equivalent of "Have a nice summer. See you next year," that people used to write in your yearbooks.

Anyway, don't let the blogger who rejected you bother you too much. It's their loss, not yours.

Hi Sandi! Thank you for placing you EC ads on my site. W/ regards to that refusal of your EC ads , I think I have seen one site who really declines ads if it doesn't give any comment on her/his post. I don't think you should be offended. Not that she/he doesn't like you personally, but maybe that's what she thinks is right for her site. Don't be annoyed! It will only lessen the beauty in you!

Feeling down sometimes is just but normal to everyone. Fight the gloom! Smile! And stay sweet!

I stopped the Entrecard thing...just no time at all. I was into it for a while...but never dropped any where near 300 a day. My max was 50 I think. I feel bad for the tried and true who visited mine...but life just got a little busier. I'm rambling. Still visit your's though...
