Attention Entrecard Users!!!

I am cancelling my Entrecard account. Why? For a few reasons but mostly because they are starting a new thing where businesses can put paid advertisements on your EC widget. I really don’t like that. Nothing on this blog has ever been paid advertising, paid blogging, paid anything (except for a very brief stint with Google Adsense that didn’t get me one red cent.) and I’m not starting now.  Not that there’s anything wrong with earning money with your blog, it’s just not my cup of tea. At least not on this blog but that’s a whole other topic.

ANYWHO!!!! I have 2,460 EC credits that I am giving away to the first blogger that asks me for them. I also tweeted this on Twitter so if a comment here beats a Twitterer’s @ reply to me there, you’ll get the credits and vice versa.

So LEAVE ME A COMMENT telling me you want my credits and if you’re first, you get them!!

Hurry up! If I don’t get any replies, I’m deleting my account and they’ll just be gone.


  1. why not just give us a try? we've built in really friendly controls that easily lets you reject all the paid ads if you don't want to run them...

  2. and if you don't wanna keep trying us here at EC, i'd be glad to relieve you of those credits!

    though i think you should stay, because you can turn those ads off easily

  3. @RevOxley~~What do you mean by "us"?

  4. Hello Trish, I just want to wish you good luck on your biz. :o)

  5. Thanks Babette. That's very nice of you to say so.

  6. I can't blame you - I was about to leave too but then decided to join in the protest against the changes - it's community that built Entrecard not Graham - without full support EC will fail. I've also hear a new alternative system without paid ads is coming out in a month, can't wait!


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
