Mini rant!

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Don't get me wrong, the following is a mini rant, and let me emphasize - I love SparkPeople!


I subscribe to the 'recipe of the day' feature, so today it was Flaxseed, wheat and bran muffins, great, I save it because I'm likely going to make them. Fine.

I notice that where it says Baking soda, it is highlighted as a clickable link. When I go to pass my cursor over it, I'm thinking, oh maybe it's going to talk about 'baking soda', brands, what it does, you know something informational that maybe I can use - what a concept.

It is an advertisements for baby bottles.

Sparkpeople, are you serious??

I get that this site is free because of all the ads, they are all over the place - I mean even the articles are deliberately broken into small pages so they can cram more ads in for us to see!! I get it, I accept that, I am SO GRATEFUL this site is FREE!

But there's a limit...

Don't muddle up my recipe perusing with ads embedded within the ingredients!!! OH MAN!! emoticon

    This seems to be a popular topic of conversations this morning.
