Yes, that's right, I'm giving myself a gift. It's long over due and it's high time I did it.
No the snow men aren't my gift. I just thought that since I was going to ramble on tonight I should throw in a couple of pictures for your entertainment.
For some time now I have had a love hate relationship with Entrecard. I love it because of the exposure it gave my blog and all the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hate it because it's eating up every second of free time I have and taking away all other things I enjoy doing. I've been telling myself that I was going to cut back, yet every night I've felt compelled to do the dropping. First there was the list of favorites to visit and comment on. Then there was the reciprocal drops and after that just filling in with who ever to get to my 300. Even though I was no longer enjoying it I felt like I had to. But why?
Well earlier today when I started my daily ritual I was on Lin's blog Duck and wheel with string
Her post today said exactly what I have been feeling. Here I am doing all these drops on a bunch of blogs that don't even bother to post. I've been on a couple that haven't added a new post since October.
As I continued on with my dropping I finally said enough is enough and I quit right there. I'm going to put a post up on my blog (I still enjoy doing that) then I'm going to spend some time on a few craft projects and maybe do a little on line Christmas shopping. That is my gift. I'm going to burn my fingers with hot glue, spend some money on the people I love and visit the blogs that I enjoy. I'm not giving up Entrecard completely, I'm hanging on to it. I'll drop, just not like I was. Maybe on those long boring winter weekend when there is nothing to do I'll sit and drop away but during the week, after a long day of work, I'm doing something I enjoy.
