I've been to several blogs that also have c-boxes similar to mine, and in nearly every single one I find a "Check out my blog!" with a click-able name leading to theirs.
As you may have noticed, my c-box includes stuff similar to this. As I must say, it is exceedingly annoying! This is MY blog about MY life, sims, the sims community, and MY thoughts. NOT an advertising billboard for extremely random blogs I have absolutely NO involvement in AT ALL. I know that they want more followers and viewers, but may I please ask advertisers to GTFO of my blog! It's ENOUGH that we have to deal with that with nearly EVER SINGLE thing in the world! But this place isn't for it! If you want to advertise on MY blog, you'll have to pay money like in the real world. It's fine with me if it's a post from a simmer asking me to check out their newest story or something, but having COMPLETELY RANDOM people advertising is almost as annoying as a pop-up or telemarketers! You just DON'T WANT THEM!
Anyways, there's my rant for the day >_<
btw, I'd like to thank the people who replied to my earlier post concerning the craziness with Coffeefreak, I really appreciate it and it made me certainly feel better :)
