Entrecard What A Shame

First I want to say that I had a great Easter although the weather could have cooperated better.

I have been gone for awhile and since I have gone there have been changes with Entrecard. I have read and watched what other people had to say about it and I have to say that I agree with some of them.

I have all these paid ads to be approved or rejected and the sad thing is that I have never seen them before. They don't drop on your site. I will not approve of paid ads on my sites unless they pay with credits like it is was when it first started out.

What I am tempted to do is make my own list of sites that I like to visit and drop Entrecard altogether but the thing about that is that I would never get to see the great new ones coming up. I would like to hear your opinion on this. I loved Entrecard when it first started because it was a great way to see all these great blogs that I would never known existed before.

Well I guess I am done with my ranting so I guess I am going for now.
I think it is a shame that what started out so great is turning out to be just like any other paid advertising site.

I'm basically in agreement with you. When Entrecard first started it was a great way to be introduced to new sites. The system worked and it wasn't broken. As you said, many of these sites have never dropped in on your blogs before.

I'm not accepting paid ads. What is going on now is a shame. I am compiling a list of sites that don't accept paid ads and are dropper friendly.

i can't say i blame them for needing to try and earn some money, but if you aren't accepting paid ads, then that should be your choice. i don't accept them but they are still running them on my blog and i noticed that when i came here you had one in the widget too. that's what i don't think is right.

I am not accepting paid ads either. You can change your settings on the entrecard site. I am posting a list of site not accepting paid ads on my blog.
