Slow drops, missing comments

Keeping up with everything can be difficult as a woman (whether you're single, married, etc.) and I've come to realize something: I can't always keep up with all of the dropping and commenting I want to do.

I try to comment on every blog I visit when I'm dropping, which means I don't always get to the 300 goal of a serious dropper. It also means I sometimes don't get to my favorite blogs, my followers, my regular readers or those who visit me.

How do you prioritize which ones you drop on and which ones you comment on? Do you try to always do both?

Well, it seems like my heart-felt necessity is causing me to lose commentors. I think. But, on a good note, I'm making new friends. So, I hope that my old friends are still coming by and forgive me for not always getting to their blogs. I also hope my new friends will stick it out with me.

Want I want to convey to you all is: I really appreciate every single one of you.


  1. It is so hard, I know! I have stopped dropping 300 a day for my own sanity! I hate getting up and thinking I must do this or else!! So I slowed way down! Some days I drop 150 other days it is a wopping 10-50! I just don't force myself any more! Besides, I am in full photographer mode lately and my week days are spent editing photos and talking to clients! This winter I will become a dropaholic once again! LOL!

  2. Well I'm not a blogger but I think that everyone can understand that you've got to do what you have to do. I'd rather see you slow down the commenting and such and keep the high quality of your blog (cause losing focus on your family is not an option) then stressing over doing it all. At some point the balance will come where everything works out just keep faith in your instincts. From where im sitting they are very good!

  3. Thx for the comment on my guest post over at Kingdom First Mom.

    I am still getting the hang of entrecard dropping and trying to make time to read more blogs as well as comment. You are right, life keeps you busy!

  4. I'm trading in the dropping for visiting only the quality blogs. If I make it to only 50 a day, so be it--I just don't want to resent having to visit 300 blogs for points that are pretty much useless. I'm slowly easing out of EC I think, I've had some problems that they will not address for the last 2 months, so I guess I'd like to move on.

    I think, like you, I'm not at everyone's blogs everyday, but that doesn't mean we aren't tried and true readers. We do what we can!! And you'll know that I'm always here! :)

  5. I visit and read. If the content brings me to have something to say, I will comment. If not, I move on.

    If the blog hasn't been updated since my last visit, then I move on.

    I don't really have a goal in mind each day. It just depends on my mood and how things are going with the girls. I do check my dashboard for each of my blogs every day so that I can approve any pending ads.

    As for my favorite blogs, I generally visit those once a week to do some in depth reading - even if I've dropped on them every single day.

    I loved you long before Entrecard.

    (psst - I left a hidden message for you just a few minutes ago. You should come see...)

  6. I comment if I have something to say...or if I lurve the blog. I have several that I actively stalk and if someone comments on mine, I definitely follow them and comment back. That, and there are so many lovely people out there, it's great to meet them!

  7. I'm still here! Or back -- I was at Scout camp all week.

    I'm pulling back on the dropping, too. It's taking too much time and I have books inside me that need to be written!


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
