I have removed the Entrecard widget

from this site. The fact that the Only way to not have paid ads appearing here was to manually decline them, one by one, every day, no matter what my ad settings were was the straw that finally broke my long suffering back. This particular blog exists Only as my personal little soap box and I quite honestly don't care if anyone reads here or not. I kept the widget because I have so many friends who are still using Entrecard that I wanted to be able to continue to drop when I visit them, but it appears to me that Entrecard itself no longer welcomes this more limited use of their service so I am finally out, after being one of the ones who Really promoted this service at the beginning and more lately one of the growing chorus of critics.

Like watching a train wreck, where it's so gory but you just Can't look away, I suspect that I will continue to be an Entrecard observer and critic. And for sure, I will do a post celebrating its demise when Graham finally manages to drive all the way off the cliff. See you at the CMFads forum.

LOL I just signed up over at CMFAds now too and was getting my widget mishaps fixed up on the new theme before letting it go active.

I was thinking about signing up for entrecards but I really didn't know what it was. Thanks for the info.

Ah now I see why you have removed entrecard. Quit worrying about the paying ads. They aren't really an issue. You can still buy ads and get face time that will benefit you. BTW - thanks for joining my discussion group on Blog Catalog.
