Can we talk about the onslaught of advertising on blogs? Am I the only one who finds it incredibly annoying? I can understand wanting to monetize your blog especially if you are very popular, but to the rest of us, it's a bit much. It's pretty bad when I can't even read your entry because a stupid pop-up window will. not. go. away. Seriously?!
I am one of the people who will not stay and peruse your blog when flashing advertisements line blog or when videos automatically start playing. And no, I do not want to participate in a !@#$%^&* survey. If anything, it honestly makes me less interested in whatever the advertisement is for.
And if we're being really honest, it's really hard to accept your glowing review of a product when they send it to you for free. If someone sends you something for free, isn't it a sure thing you'll love it (even if you don't) so more companies will be inclined to send you free stuff?
Maybe I'm just grumpy this week.... ; )
