NOTE: The title of this blog might be a bit misleading because I used the term "dump" which could imply that I think your blogs are garbage, even though that isn't the case. xP
Maybe it's just me, but I have had just about enough of people advertising their blogs on other people's blogs. I have nothing against the blogs or the users who post them, but pasting links to blogs onto the comments of other blogs is annoying and unnecessary.
Like most people, I enjoy reading each individual comment on my blogs. Therefore, whenever I see the number of comments increase, I automatically click to check them. However, half the time when I check, it just ends up being more links. Now, this isn't some horrible catstrophe that I can't live with, but it can be a tad frustrating.
The thing is, by the time you post a link on a blog, most people have already seen and commented on the blog you have posted a link on, so people are less likely to see it. It takes less comments than you think to get to the Most Popular Blog Posts. Just by posting your link on chat, many people can already see it. This alone can get you enough comments for it to be seen on the side.
Despite all of this, I do realize that blogs need a place to be advertised. That being said, I propose that instead of it being on other blogs, we just create a blog for advetisements. This experiment is obviously slightly flawed because we would eventually have an overload of ads in the comments, making it difficult to distinguish one from the other. However, we could always delete old ads after a reasonable period of time.
So, tell me what you think of this idea and how you think it could be improved. Your opinion and for once, your ADS will be greatly appreciated. :)
