I’m sure by now everyone who uses Entrecard has seen the new changes. Now people can pay to put ads on your widget.
At first, I thought nothing of it. I approved ads and only rejected the ones with half-naked women or something else repulsive on them.
Then, I read a thread on the Mom Blogger’s Club about all of this. It made me wonder if sticking with Entrecard is the right decision. Entrecard has always been a fun way to find great blogs. But, now with these paid ads, people who use their credits to advertise for a day on my blog are having their time replaced by someone who many not even be a blogger. I don’t like that.
Lately, I’ve noticed ads that I did not approve or have never even seen appearing on this blog and on Buy By Mom’s blog. I’ve contacted Entrecard about it, but they haven’t responded. I honestly wonder if they will. My guess is that they’ll have some lame excuse about a “glitch” in the system.
As of right now, I only approve paid ads that are from bloggers – and only those in my category. If Entrecard doesn’t rethink things, I’ll be pulling out. I’ll spend my last few Entrecard credits and be on my merry way.
