- I see a distinct change in the blogging world. Now mostly dominated by those with commercial interests, I lament the amateur blogger, the one who wants to advance the art of quilting without selling something. The one who is thrilled to learn new techniques without spending $100.00 for new templates and rulers.
- There are a large number who started as artists sharing their work or writers working on technique and developing their skill who lean so strongly to one political agenda or another that the work, the skill, the message is lost. And with it my readership.
- While I do not object to strategically placed sidebar ads in many Lifestyle blogs, the constant and incessant pop-ups that block text or black out content is infuriating. I am sure that these generate more income but it will not be from me. Your pretty porch and pumpkin displays are not that interesting.
- My summary, and my opinion is the one expressed here, is really simple. I am culling my reading list. My news feed is my first read and I try to keep diverse opinion in context. My entertainment news feed will be different and in some ways I am sad to delete some favorite blogs but there is a limit. And I have reached it. 39 pop up ads in one post? really? Goodbye and have a nice life.
