In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make

When the [Blogshares] site goes live all shares in your portfolio will be deleted as will your transaction history for the beta period. You will only take your cash balance forward. Blogs will have their shares reset to the original 5000 and you will receive 1000 shares in every blog you've claimed ownership of. So be sure to sell your stock early. [link]

Just in case you've missed the above e-mail and / or announcement on the Blogshares website, everything in your portfolio will be deleted on May 1st. You only carry your cash balance and 1000 shares of any blog you've claimed into the non-beta site. So what does this mean? Sell, sell, sell! I've you've gifted me shares (and thank you for doing so!) please don't get your feelings hurt if you see that I've sold them. They won't stay in my account after 5/1 no matter what. Let Black Wednesday begin...

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

I was wondering why I got a couple of LBO notices(or a duplicate of the same one). Thanks for the heads-up.

I've sold off most of my holdings - then hit the glass ceiling of 21 transactions per 24 hour period...

I'm debating whether or not I even want to bother with it once it goes "pay"

Hmmm... it's not going "pay" Don, but he has considered capping the transactions to 20 per day so that there were perks to offer for donations. On a normal day, 20 is fine - but as I've sold everything off, it's a bit low for now.

Glad I sold off all of my high-dollar items before the mad rush began! I hope everything doesn't come crashing down!

I managed to dump most of them...right now I'm only holding Tenth-Muse and my toilet paper...I mean my own blog. Boy, it was rough parting with my shares in this one. :/

Looks like everyone has the same idea as you, website is down again *sigh*

I don't really care anymore. I never quite understood how to play this thing, anyway. I wish they made it easier to remove one's self from the game!

Getting 10 identical e-mails telling me *7 days until the site goes live* does not endear me to them, either!
