I thought it was a good read and stated many valid points. I can't stand a blog that is loaded with ads or asks you to register in just to read something.
Personally, I am also getting tired of being inundated with SEO/How to make money blogging/Increase web traffic blogs that keep asking me to follow and vote for them. To me, there are just too many of them that are all covering the same topics, saying the same thing, and are honesty kind of boring. I do like a few that I follow and have helped me out as I am a newbie blogger but I have no need for 100 blogs that cover the same subject.
There is a saying that goes something like this, a person will not change what is wrong if they don't know they are wrong. So for me, in order for me to change, then I need to know where my problem lies and it is helpful having examples. I am new at blogging and for me, it was all about open conversations about anything anyone wanted to talk about. Dusten, if you have read my blog, could you show me what I am doing wrong ? It would be greatly appreciated. Ted
I completely agree with you, popups are a pain and I alsway close site with popups. I agree with other things also, One more thing I like to add is some bloggers activate comments with word verification, I think no one has patience now a days to copy the clumsy words and give also give a comments. That is also a big turnoff
I won't read a post if there are Google ads right at the beginning of the post. It comes off tacky and there is another appropriate place for those ads: your side bar. I want to see your content, not banner ads.
