Entrecard Bloggers NOT Accepting EC Paid Ads



I am fairly new to entrecard. I like it because I have found alot of great blogs, and I got more followers by putting my card on different sites. But now there is a new system of paid ads that has caused quite a stir. I want to control who advertises on my site. Also I feel that anyone who advertises on my site should get the full ad exposure. Therefore, I only accept ads bought with entrecard credits.

The author at Inspired Political Discourse made a list of blogs that don't accept EC paid ads. I found several others that posted the same thing. Most of the blogs clearly posted it, but some posted on other sites that they don't accept EC paid ads. Some didn't have an EC slot. So this is the current list I have. If you have a blog that does not accept EC paid ads that you want listed, please let me know. If your blog is listed, and you feel it belongs in a different category, leave me a comment. Or if anyone finds a blog on this list that is accepting paid ads, I will remove them.

  4. You have one of my sites listed http://mylinuxtoday.blogspot.com/ But I am not accepting paid ad's on my other as well,http://electriciannotes.blogspot.com/ My beliefs are much the same if I display someones badge from credits they earned by sitting here doing much the same as me clicking away I feel they deserve the display of the ad not the person whom paid EC.

  5. Thanks Donna, we are certainly appreciative of your listing us on your list. we have decided it's worth it to have the respect and clicks instead of the fake ranking. we have 10 days of ads on our widget right now and our price was dropped to 258 credits; incredible break for any of the folks who like BadGalsRadio.
    hit it now because May 1. we're out of entrecard.

  7. Hi Donna. Can you include my blog? I just made the decision and have cancelled all paid ads on my blog. http://silversachet.blogspot.com and it can be in either fashion or jewelry category. I appreciate this!

    Thank you!

  10. Hi A Trivita Mom. I added your site. You can change your EC preferences. On your dashboard click the "Advert settings" and check the "Allow paid ads only if explicitly approved by you". That has worked for me. Thanks.

  11. Hi Sparky. I added your other blog. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Proudly not accepting ads. You know, if they had every inch of the dashboard bombarded with ads I would have supported them. But my ads are my own.

    My blogs (if you feel like adding them to the list):

    A Blogger and a Father--Parenting.

    Politicartoons.com--Politics.

    Insane Baltimore--News and Media.

    All the BS--mixed.

  18. Great to see so many people refusing to accept paid ads at Entrecard! I am also rejecting all paid ads at my arts blog http://paulbaines.co.uk/category/blog and my fashion blog at http://buy-tees.net

    What's more I have read that Gregory Mathews - a long term member of Entrecard is writing a new script to provide a credit based alternative to Entrecard.com - yippee! Take a look at what he said at

  23. Hi Donna - I'd be thrilled if you would please consider adding my blog to your list (either under arts or mixed bag). I'm bummed about this whole thing and hope I don't have to leave EC because of it...but we'll see. Thanks for doing this!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you for adding me. I just saw their new Forum rules. These guys are getting more confrontational and angry. I'm afraid I don't see a future for EC as soon as something new comes out.

  25. I'm working my way through the list and added bookmarks for everyone but, am surprised at how many don't have the yellow duck in any form on their page. My question is, how are we to know they don't accept ads if they don't have that showing on their page? Guess I thought they were to ad that, you would check then add them to the list?

    Just want to be sure I understand.
    Sandy
    Thanks and have a great wkend

  26. Had some blog issues for awhile, just now getting back to working through. Under Music, New Delema sends error message address can't be found. Just thought you might want to check into it.
    Thanks

  27. Me again. Sorry, under News and Media, Bad Girls Radio doesn't have EC, they announced a few days ago it was being deleted. PUss and Reboots doesn't either.

    Wonder if the muscles in my right arm and hand are getting stronger from all the clicking. lol

  28. One more time...then really I'm done. Under photograph, Memories of You has a PAID ad on the blog. I ran my mouse over it...on the picture part and it says paid. It's one I've seen a ton today. Not the big boob one, the girl sitting on a sofa ad.

    Thanks

  33. HI!

    I just started a new list myself as a database, trying to help everyone consolidate EVERYONE'S list, I know its a big task ahead of me, so were all not going to 1,000 sites and start a MAIN DATABASE that will be posted forever of non EC paid ad's list that ANYONE can come to ANYTIME!

    I hope you will add this to your list / blog about it and Join my list :)

    [category: religion & spirituality]
    and

    a malaysian abroadhttp://amalaysianabroad.today.com/

  37. I also don't accept EC paid ads because it lessens the value of the ec credits we pay for the ads we buy
