OK, the only reason I'm doing this....

I wasn't going to be one of the many Blogs out there advertising Blog Clicker because so many people are doing it now, that the people who don't sign up for it, probably never will.

However, I signed up for it last week, have won what seems like a bajillion credits, and any way you can get traffic to your blog, I'm all for it.

I sent an e-mail to the contact department asking a question, and not only did they respond with an answer within minutes, they were courteous too! If there is one thing people know about me, it is that if I get good service, I'm all up for praising you! So here goes.

Sign up for this! Now!

I also want to tell you that I am so stunned at the following info, that I am almost speechless.

I just saw an advert on TV for the Sylvan Learning Center. The "mom" in the ad says that "Christophers teacher recommended the Learning Center so I thought why not give it a go". I'm sorry, maybe if the teacher had tried a bit harder you wouldn't have to be forking a bunch of money out! In fact, as I'm typing this, another ad is for the same thing. Damn, they have their timing just right. "We start out by identifying your childs distinct needs....". Yeah, I assumed teachers at their school did that but apparently, once again, I'm proven wrong. I'm surprised the teachers know my kids names never mind what their weaknesses are, and you all know how I feel about the spelling B.S.

Sigh, I need to go click on something!

Hi, I've tried Blog Clicker but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Which is why I haven't told anyone. I'm sticking to Blog Explosion.

I fI'd known you were using it I'd have clicked on your button so you could get my referral- next time perhaps!

_I agree, after trying I am in heaven w/ Regarding the ad, that is a way to attract mom's of kid who's problems might be just beyond what a teacher can solve in a classroom; maybe the kid needs more one on one attention. _androidette [via BlogClicker] @

As a teacher those ads always bug me too. I never condone Sylvan, because I have yet to see it be effective. And it's outrageously expensive!

Don't feel sorry on my account. I'm a notorious spoilsport! I didn't like it bcause I kept seeing the same bloig over and over again I kept thinking what if someone else sees mine over and over and is sick of the sight of me (like another face we both know!). But also because there weren't any blogs I don't know. And because I only won credit once on the jackpot thingy- that's always gonna piss me off!
I'll probably give it another try when the visitor has gone home- will tell you what I think then!
