Keeping You Posted

I won a free ad place

A few days ago I participated in a blogging tips game called ‘use a letter, share a tip‘ at Worknplay where Ritu asked readers to provide a tip from A to Z. At the time I didn’t even know that Ritu had offered perks to participate as I didn’t read all of the instructions, one of which was 125 x 125 banner ad space toa randomly picked winner. Well, to my pleasant surprise, I won the ad space and the banner is on display at Ritu’s blog. The banner was developed by Mayank Gupta of ReviewSaurus. You might remember Mayank from his guest post here Should we drop the Paid Text Links or not.

Here is the banner that Mayank put together. What dyu say?



CLIQ to discontinue


I received an email from CLIQ today that they will be discontinuing their service as of Jan 31st. CLIQ was originally created by Offermatica, Inc. as a way to research and explore the role of content merchandising in Social Media. As of last month, Offermatica has been acquired by Omniture .


I am really sorry to see the beautiful widget go, especially because of this widget, it was so easy to visit the superb blogs of Tad of SEO 2.0, Fred Peters of Newest on the Net, Lid of BlogWell, and Dicky of TechSnack.


I hope we can keep up with each other’s blogs even after they take away the widget, because I will miss them for sure. In the past months, seeing them on my sidebar here felt they were a part of this blog.

Talk about attachment.

And Now, heres something for you.

Since I will miss CLIQ widget and those lovely faces in my sidebar, I thought of filling up the void, umm empty space with your banner. So, here’s the deal.


If you can tell me in the comments where the heading of this post came from, I’ll enter your name in the draw for a free 125 x 125 ad banner placement for the entire month of February.

  1. Thank you Pearl, it does make me sad too.

    I’ve just spent the past four weeks moving (read frustrating myself) BlogWell from .com to self hosted – primarily to add the Cliq box – and I get the same e-mail. Not happy, I am. I much prefer Cliq over other options – need to start looking for something else…I too will miss my Cliq family

  4. Congrats Pearl!

    You know, I never could get Cliq to work, so I’m not going to miss it. For some reason, they didn’t like my blog, and I always received an error when I tried to sign up for an account.
