If you’re dropping in fromand looking for my widget, it’s not here any longer. After much thought, I have decided to withdraw all of my from Entrecard.
I don’t think the dust has settled yet on the whole paidthing. I’ve been reading many posts on some of my favorite blogs, ironically, which I had discovered through Entrecard.
Members have been dropping out, basically because we now had to monitor and babysit our dashboards virtually 24 hours a day.
Initially I accepted a few paid ads, but primarily from my favorite droppers. I’ve noticed that my favorite bloggers were dropping less frequently, and that the rates to advertise on my blogs had gone down.
At first, I put up a banner saying I was “Dropper Friendly” and would only accept advertising from those who paid by credits earned via dropping ECs.
Always a fair-minded person, I wanted to make sure that those who do advertise on my blog are getting 100% visibility, 100% of the time.
As an alternative, I now offer reasonable advertising for those who would like to display their banners on my blog, along with advertising options available from Project Wonderful, CMF ads, Adgitize Me, 123 Traffic Exchange and Moms Ad Exchange and CinnamonHollow.
I’ve been introduced to many wonderful blogs I wouldn’t have discovered otherwise, and have bookmarked many for further reading.
I hope that thosewho still use Entrecard will Bookmark my blogs, subscribe in a reader subscribe via Newsletter.
