Attention Entrecard friends: due to the recent advertising changes, I believe that EC is no longer the place for me. I simply used the service to find other blogs, and have ‘met’ and read many nice people and blogs in my year there.
Since the announcement to change the advertising system so that paid outside ads take precedence, and the fact that I would have to pay credits every time I refused one, I feel that I would not have appropriate control over what could be displayed on my blog.
Therefore, I am currently buying up ads for my final week, and will not be accepting any further ads here after today. Thank you to everyone who has dropped and commented via this system – I really hope the bloggers that I’ve met will continue to visit, as I will continue to visit them regardless of this change.
Important update: it is good news that the payment for refusing the paid outside ads idea has now been revoked, and users will not be penalised. I have decided to stand by my decision to leave however, as I have been thinking for some time that my useage of EC was coming to a natural end. I will still be visiting those blogs that I have found though!
