Reach by Gloria Estefan

If you came from Entrecard, you would have realised that the Entrecard’s widget was removed from this site. It is time to bid farewell and to move on. Let us reach higher!

Reach written by Diane Eve Warren, Gloria Estefan

Some dreams live on in time, forever
Those dreams, you want with all your heart
And I’ll do whatever it takes
Follow through with the promise I made
Put it all on the line
What I hoped for at last would be mine

If I could reach, higher
Just for one moment touch the sky
From that one moment in my life
I’m gonna be stronger
Know that I’ve tried my very best
Put my spirit to the test
If I could reach

Some days are meant to be remembered
Those days we rise above the stars
So I’ll go the distance this time
Seeing more the higher I climb
That the more I believe
All the more that this dream will be mine

If I could reach, higher
Just for one moment touch the sky
From that one moment in my life
I’m gonna be stronger
Know that I’ve tried my very best
I’d put my spirit to the test
If I could reach

If I could reach, higher
Just for one moment touch the sky
From that one moment in my life
I’m gonna be stronger
I’m gonna be so much stronger yes I am
I’ve tried my very best
I’d put my spirit to the test

If I could reach
If I could, If I could
If I could reach
Reach, I’d reach, I’d reach
I’d reach’, I’d reach so much higher
Be stronger, higher, higher

Stalk me
Share the joy

    Yeah, yeah, I see that you don’t have the EC widget now. Sad, because I won’t be able to drop my card any longer. Anyhow, I still will visit you here if I get the chance in the coming days.

    Take care!

      @ Recel, thank you and ingat ka dyan din. 🙂

      @ Sasha, somehow EC should be able to survive. Although there are a lot of unhappiness about the sponsored ad, most will still continue to stay around. Keep in touch. 🙂

      @ John, thank you for dropping by. I have enjoyed dropping over at English Wilderness because of the new photo that appears almost everyday. All the best to you. 🙂

      @ Jan, sorry for the inconvenience caused. If you have read the latest post, at least the first few lines, you would have realised that I have taken off the widget and wouldn’t be looking all around for it. And yes, I dropped in your box for the last time so as to save you the trouble of having to come back after reading that I have removed the widget.

      @ Jude, thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment. It is very much appreciated.

      @ Fitness Diva, indeed there are still a lot of goodness about EC and it makes it easier to go from blog to blog. However, I couldn’t buy into the latest change and so it was goodbye. 🙂

    I am also thinking of removing my ec widgets in some of my blogs and will retain only a few. It’s sad how they tried to pull this one over us. EC will lose a lot of its members now that they brought back this paid ads.

    Keep in touch 😉

    I noticed you disabled ads and now the widget has disappeared 🙂 It’s a shame Entrecard doesn’t care about the community.

    I’m not going to allow anything I object to to be advertised on my blog. I’ve already taken Entrecard off my programming blogs and if I see anything I don’t like, it’ll be off English Wilderness too.

    I also noticed your widget has vanished. This is very inconsiderate of you, because we try to reciprocate drops and there is no widget. So we waste a lot of time looking for it. You were in my inbox today, how can that be?
    Just remember EntreCard still generates a lot of traffic and the sponsor ads will only appear 15% of the time. At present there are only two, both in-house ads, and you can reject either one of them. So what’s the problem.

    I saw, but thanks for still dropping!
    This EC thing is crazy right now. I’m going to keep mine on for now….I really don’t pay that much attention to it, and I still get paid sponsors for my own ad boxes, anyway.
    It’s easier for me to read everyone’s blogs that I like from the EC platform, so at least it’s good for something! 😉

    It’s a sad, sad state of being over there right now.

    They closed the forums about an hour ago. I have NO idea what this new owner is thinking. This type of behavior only adds fuel to the fire of anger and distrust.

    He did not provide the moderators with a reason other than the support staff could better deal with the angry users. He also did not give us a reopen date.

    It’s very frustrating for me because I really enjoy the conversations within the forum setting.

    @ Mom, they are probably making it a little harder for people to feedback and to group together against their favour. Eventually when people get used to the new change, they will open up the forum again.

    @ Mike, yes, perhaps they would wake up one day. However, nevertheless, they are better in listening to the feedbacks from the communities this time; they air sponsored ad 15% and they created the option of sponsored ad free at $50 a year (originally and now they allow payment at $5/month). So I guess they do listen to the communities. So why did I leave? If I could comfortably pay the $50 a year, I might just stay around. In anyway, life goes on. 🙂

    @ Jan, it’s alright, no harm done. I understood the frustration of it as I have been through it myself.

    @ Sue, I should be seeing you around if you are still posting Wordless Wednesday. I have missed several rounds of it as I do not have any good photos to share at the moment. 🙂

    BK, you were one of the first blogs on EC way back when I joined two years ago to drop on my widget and leave a comment on my blog. I greatly respect what you have created here and that you give so much of your time each day to other bloggers. I left EC too, had to. It was a culmination of lack of time to make the system work, and frustration with their antics. But, I will keep in touch here and with all my favorites!

    Theresa, your blog is also one of the blog which I have enjoyed reading. I love especially the positiveness in your writing. In many ways, I could relate to what you had written and a lot of times I felt that your writings were something I would very much like to express but I couldn’t say it better than you. Thank you for keeping in touch.
