Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

You would think after years of typing that I would get better and faster... but no... seems I get slower and make more mistakes that I have to go back and correct. I never was good at typing... I blame it on my fingers (my wild heart has nothing to do with it... that's a Stevie Nicks reference in case you didn't get it)... they are dyslexic... I gave up years ago on typing the correct way because my fingers never would go where they were supposed to anyway... so I'm one of those that just lets them go to the keys at random... whichever finger wants to hit it hits it. I made an A in typing class in college... even though I was slow and made lots of mistakes.... I still made 100's on the written exams and all of the other stuff... so I got an A... strange huh?.... I should have barely passed that class.

Last week I was using some EC credits to advertise on other blogs... sometimes my ad gets declined... it usually doesn't bother me... I just think "whatever" and go on about my business. Have you ever had your ad declined? Here are a few of the reasons the decliners gave.... "Not appropriate".... Hmmm I didn't realize that my button or my blog had inappropriate things on them..... "Design clash"..... I also didn't realize that my design had to match the blog I'm advertising on..... "Not relevant".... ok... so now I'm irrelevant. This is the one that bothered me... why???.... because this was from a blog I have been following since I first joined EC... I've dropped on that blog... and I even had her button on my blog!.... oh well whatever.... I have lots of wonderful bloggy friends :) Have you ever declined an EC ad... I don't mean a paid one... just an ad from a regular EC user...

I just got out of a nice cool shower.... and I'm dripping in sweat already... it's 85 degrees in here! Our air is messed up (again) today.... we have soooo much trouble with our unit... it drives me insane. Adrian was supposed to be off today... but of course he had to go take care of some issues... off the clock of course... not that it matters he doesn't get paid by the hour anyway... but still... he's suposed to be off. He went to work yesterday at 3:00 am and got home last night at 10:30 pm.... at least he didn't have to go in for anything on Sunday. When he gets home he's supposed to fix the air.... when he gets home... so for now I have my own personal sauna.... I don't like saunas... they're too hot... this is the south... it's hot enough without saunas.

Oh wait! He just called... he's on his way home! I'll have air soon! And we'll find something fun to do! I can stop rambling now!

I declined one ad because there was a lot of racy (not nude but racy) photos on the blog and I didn't think it was appropriate. Besides that, I've never declined. I got declined for irrelevancy as well.

I've declined a couple for my mommy blog because they didn't seem appropriate for a blog about a toddler. But otherwise, no. I've been declined as well but I'm usually too lazy to find out why ;)

Being declined or turned down for anything is always tough. Who died and made them the god of relevance? LOL

I've had a lot declined for not appropriate or design clash, I guess my blog title is offensive to some. lol Most were fellow mommy/women's bloggers, so I sulked for awhile... I'm just not in the cool crowd I guess, LOL

I admit I do decline some, but they are either full of the paid to post junk, or they have absolutely nothing in common with my blog - like cars or whatever. I always explain why though!

(You know you can advertise on my blog any time!!)

I have had mine declined for reasons I don't ever pay attention to LOL. I have the attention span of a gnat. I have only refused three, in the long time I have been there, and only on my homeschool blog, not my jewelry. One was showing too much cleavage, I do have kids visit my blog, the other had a word I find offensive in their title, and the other sent me to an attack site when I clicked it. That is it the rest have been approved.

I, too, have declined some ads - mostly because they were very political content which is nothing at all like my blog. But interestingly enough, I've never even bothered to check if I was declined or why? Where is my head at??

Stacie said...

Honestly I don't think I have ever been declined maybe because I haven't advertised on blogs I don't think. I just drop. Yikes on it being hot it's only been in the 60's here.

My other blog, kidsofqueers.com gets declined so much that I rarely try to advertise on EC with it. I suspect it has something to do with the word queer in the title, obviously they never read it since it is a family oriented blog. Oh well, you can't please them all of the time. Feel free to advertise on any of my sites, I don't reject ads unless there is nudity on them.
