Yes monetized blogs are a turn off to me because you never know if you are getting a real opinion or a compensated one. And a lot of bloggers do NOT make that clear.
It’s like paying for a platform that already exists on free blogging platforms meets another kind of social media platform.
How many of those do we need? And why should we pay for it? Sorry, I think I will stick to being an individual, not a blogging Stepford Wife with another monthly bill to pay. I do not want fake potentially paid for “influencers.” I want people who want to read what I write, like one of my photos or recipes…. organically. Different strokes for different folks.
Sorry I just think this whole entire concept is Mighty Fake.
