As many of you that are/were users of Entrecard know, October 5th marked the reurn of paid ads, this time without the permission of the blog owner. As I've been doing my usual blog surfing and such, I've noticed that many of the blogs that I normally read and drop on have left the service or are getting ready to do so.
There have even been some that have contacted me about the belief that I will be following suit. I have not noticed any paid ads on my blog, yet. Having said that I will be watching the behavior of EC over the next month. They're on thin ice with me, and its getting thinner.
Like many of you, when I joined the site, it was to meet other bloggers, get some traffic to the site, read other blogs, etc. As time has passed, its become more of a chore to drop, and with all the "changes for the better" they've been implementing, it just isn't fun to be an EC member anymore.
The only reason I'm sticking around is becuse of the hard work I put into EC, but make no mistake, it may not be that long before I say the hell with it and leave the service for bigger and better things (which I am currently searching for, if anyone has suggestions). When/if that happenes, I'll give everyone notice in advance. Until then, I hope everyone has a good week/day/morning/night...whatever it is when you're read this.
