Why Blogspot Sucks (And Free Blogs In General)

Ok, so blogspot/blogger pulled my blog after 6 YEARS of being online because they deemed it “spam” because there were a handful of affiliate links in it. Relatively speaking it was quite low and certainly not a “splog”, as you can tell by my posts here, as I genuinely dislike programs so I’m not one to post referral links everywhere. There were maybe 5 or 6 affiiate links out of 135 posts and 6 years of writing. That shows you how stupid their reviewers are, in my opinion.

Anyway, here I am with a new wordpress installation, and a warning to anyone reading that this is what you should do in the first place and, yes I do know better. It’s just that back in 2007 when I started this blog I really didn’t know better then and assumed that, if it’s owned by Google, then it’s the way to go, right? I mean they can’t be bad ALL the time…oh, how times have changed! Now Google is “Big Brother” and everything they touch turns to suck.

So, if you read any old posts and see some broken stuff just blame it on blogspot, and my early naive days online. I’m MUCH more internet savvy now. Over the next few days I’ll be adding a pretty template and all that jazz, so hang in there until then. Thanks!!

Lesson to be learned: DON’T USE FREE HOSTED BLOGS! Own your content!!

    Wow, was wondering what happened to you. I have been following you and reading all your great posts since you first started. Google is a big disappointment now a days. For some odd reason they have made webmasters their enemies. Sorry to hear they pulled your original site. Sad, sad on googles part.
    Don’t let them get you down…I’m still a big fan of the ” Great Asmo” and adegreeofsuccess!

      Yes, I don’t understand their hostility toward webmasters either (including the ones who use Adsense), and even affiliate marketers who are the same people who put large chunks of their advertising dollars into Adwords.

      Call me paranoid, but the internet appears to becoming less about freedom of information and more about the manipulation of our personal data by a handful of big companies (Google, Facebook…) who sell off our data to the highest bidder. Some of the crap they pull just makes me want to throw up. I rarely use Facebook anymore because the first thing I see now is some sponsored post about dish liquid or cars, and I switched to Bing from Google after they shitcanned all those affiliate sites, which says THEY can earn money online, but we can’t.

      I’m a huge advocate of fairness in all aspects of life, but the internet has been such a maze of crap lately that I almost gave up. Yet another thing that was good once, until big corporations got involved and ruined it.

      Thank you for being so supportive over the years. Miss Moneybottom Rocks!!!
