Entrecard Cash-out Regodon

When I applied for the cashout on Entrecard, it showed the status "Cashout application waiting" so I thought it's just normal since they may need to verify some information first. The next day, I was so eager to check if it's already approved or anything but it's still showing the same. The next few days, it still got the same status. I don't think Entrecard is serious enough about this cashout thing and I don't like the idea of waiting and waiting. It would've been better if it was disapproved and you would get a message "please try again or resubmit or try to meet the requirements first... etc...etc.

Since the day I joined Entrecard, it's always a fun for me to type "Entrecard.com" and do my usual dropping of cards, reading new blogs and updates but lately, it's been really dragging. I realized I have lost more credits since the day they introduced the "Paid ads" which got me excited initially since they said it would finance the cashout. I didn't even bother to click the many ads that popped up because I haven't figured out yet the auto-approve option not until the next days. I thought it would be the start of "Happy Entrecard Days" but things aren't going the same lately, they're issuing criteria for those who would be entertained first for cashout and I don't care about the rest.

So, with the pending approval of the cashout, I also rejected the paid ads since I am not getting anything from approving these ads, instead I would approve the usual ads in exchange for credits. I can feel the heat and sympathy now why many are calling for strike about these paid ads. Am now getting curious about adgitize and signed up for it since they also have the option for pay-out. Who wouldn't want to be rewarded? We'll for me, I was planning to cashout some of my 6k credits and I was excited but I guess I just have to be contented of being able buy some ads using my credits. I just hope his cash-out regodon would be over the soon.

Entrecard is now offering cashouts!

Attention Entrecarders!
As promised by Graham, the cashout is now launched. I am not sure how it looks like and how to do it because I haven't tried online cashouts like this before and I just signed up for it today but am sure it would be pretty easy, (Entrecard earned the reputation from me of doing all they can to make it easy for their members). Though I was expecting at least $3 per thousand, a dollar per 1k is a great start and I am sure Entrecard has got lots of plans for it's business and for all of us as well.
As of this time, I have saved almost 6k now after advertising and I don't plan on cashing them out just yet. I think they are also worth more for advertising but I am definitely grateful that they have finally launched the program so I would have a choice to either use my credits for ads or to convert it to cash. They also have priority issues as to who should get the first priority for cashout so I am not even sure if I would be included though am a frequent dropper, I don’t have the time to drop 300 or so, can only manage at most 100 but my usual dropping maximum is around 30 – 50. With regard to the advertisements, they get it all, it’s auto approved so I don’t have a problem with that, (it’s also a hassle to approve each ads since they come in volume). There are also suggestions to prioritize those who hold huge contests and credit giveaways but I don’t think it should be so. It is their decision to hold contests and they’re getting the attention of the bloggers or readers so I think that’s what it’s worth for. Anyways, for more info about their criteria, you can click here.

Happy Easter!

I am a Catholic and I think I can consider myself practicing my faith. We've been observing Easters and Passovers and whenever I am asked about this observance of the Holy Week I fell short of a credible answer so I thought I would research about it.

As I've re-discovered the meaning of lent, let me share to you my findings. This is taken (unedited) from a Christian site called givingananswer.org. Please take some time to read.


What is Easter? And why do Christians celebrate it? What does the Easter Bunny have to do with Easter? And isn’t Easter a Pagan holiday? All of these valid questions should and need to be answered by the Christian Community. After all, Easter is the greatest of all Christian holy days and needs to be properly explained by the Christian so it may be properly understood by the non-Christian. After briefly discussing what Easter is not, we will then answer the much more important question of what Easter is and why Christians celebrate Easter? In answering these questions we will cite the Bible (Taurat, Zabur and Injeel) as well as the Quran and Hadith.


The derivation of the word “Easter” is unsure and has been debated for many years. The word is not found in the Greek biblical texts and so has been borrowed from other cultures and applied to the Christian commemoration of the death, burial and especially the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Historically, there have been many religious and cultural festivals that gravitate towards the vernal equinox in the Spring of the year. There can be little doubt that over many years the traditions of these non-Christian observances have affected the popular observance of Easter today. The Easter Bunny and the giving and hunting for
eggs are cultural traditions that have long existed and been adopted by many who celebrate Easter. Unfortunately, for many in America Easter is equated with Bunnies and eggs. This phenomenon is not unlike the secularization of Christmas. Instead of celebrating Jesus birth, many Americans are celebrating Santa Claus and the Christmas Tree. And yet, there remains a significant minority of the America, those who are true Christians, which have not forgotten the true meaning of these holy days, and they spend them with Godly reverence and prayer.

So then, we see that the popular observance of Easter today which emphasizes these non-Christian elements (i.e. Easter Bunny, dyeing eggs etc.) has virtually nothing to do with the true meaning of Easter which has been celebrated (although not always in that name) since the 1st Century AD. The fact that non-Christian elements have crept in to what is known as the popular observance of Easter in no way nullifies or taints the true meaning and significance of Easter or the event that it commemorates. To disagree with this line of reasoning would imperil the Kabba in Mecca which would need to be discarded since it was the center of prolific idol worship before the time of Muhammad. The Kabba itself held 360 pagan idols but is today the very focal point of the prayers and pilgrimages of Muslims all around the world. No, it would be foolish to assert that the Christian observance of Easter is wrong or tainted by paganism that has influenced its popular observance after its institution, and not say the very same thing or worse about the Kabba which was the center of idol worship before Islam adopted it as there focal point of prayer. So we see then that to discount or denigrate Easter because of how it has been misrepresented or syncretized by the secular world does not deal at all with its true meaning and significance to true Christians the world over. So then, what is the true meaning and significance of Easter to authentic Christianity? We will now endeavor by God’s grace to answer that question for our reader.


To even begin to understand the true meaning of Easter (or “Resurrection Day” as not to confuse you by a title which is disputed) one must understand the history of the Jewish holy time of Passover. We must explain this because Christians believe that Jesus Christ is our Passover and that the original Passover of the Jews was to point directly towards the coming Messiah the true and final Passover (1Corinthians 5:7). It often amazes Christians to learn that Islam, the Quran, the Hadith, and most Muslims know nothing about the Passover ceremony, and more importantly the miraculous event that it commemorates. One can never understand the purpose and meaning for Jesus Christ’s death (and thus Easter) without understanding the meaning and significance of the Passover.

How to Develop a Website?

Lately, I've been interested in creating or developing websites. I wanted to start on my own and manage it well. I am not a programmer but I have some knowledge on computers, it's basic operations and I had also managed to create working programs before, so I thought I would be able to do it.

Somehow along the way, I realized, I don't have the tools needed to execute my plan. I would definitely need to have some sources, Guides and Tutorials, maybe a Free Web How-to's, how to use SEO or any guide to do this. And so I searched the web. I was lucky enough to find out that there are few available sites online that teaches you how to do things, from the very basic. I was lucky enough to find one website that teaches you the basics. It was introduced to my by my co-worker. A lot of interesting and useful information are available on the site, whether you are a newbie who's looking for articles about blogging101 for dummies or a webmaster looking for a smart solution of everyday web development tasks that saves a webmaster from the necessity to “reinvent the wheel”. The complete URL of the site is bravenet.org

With these new discovery, I am positive about the realization of my goal for the year, to be able to jumpstart my blog and bring it to the next level, and hopefully become a webmaster as well.
