Has anyone realized that there is an increase in the gold membership? Just thought I'd let everyone know....like they go from $19.95/month to $29.95/ month and most of you have it automatically renewed, so I bet they thought you'd never notice. ~T~

RG in answer to your question yes you can make a site for chat and it cost VERY little a yr. It won't have too many fancy things unless you can find a graphic designer who can put one together. If anyone has that ability or knows of anyone who would do that then go for it. I assure you that many would come over to it and leave this place alone. It's a simple process. Definitely a thought to be processed....

Hi Angel, I thought Granola bars were a new synthetic kitchen work top, i was just picturing you kneeling on your kitchen floor gnawing your way thro ther work surfaces.

CB, A strike would be the perfect idea...but we cannot tell others what to do. Count me in..I refuse to renew...You are right, it was never the money...It's they way they asked members to promote the site by telling their friends, and within the same month they applied the price hike.AND without a word to anyone. They know the blogging community is vast and stretches further than the members who post. They could have announced it. ~T~

Hmmmm, thanks for the heads up. What a waste of money this place has become. I am definitely going to review my position here. It's NOT the 30 bucks...it's how they handle it. Sheesh, what a bunch of amatuers. We should go on strike, and refuse to blog unless they grandfather us back to the old rate.

Pauline Maria... Actually, money is one of the few areas, that means very little to me... I went over a year, not buying anything for myself, eating 25 cent granola bars, so that my kids and my horses, cats, birds, etc.. didn't have to change their diet.. This enlightening experience, brought me close to God, and made me realize how unimportant, things really are... I learned what was important to me, and it definately wasn't clothes... People are taking me literally, and since this is the internet, I guess I can see why... I had just hoped my presence here, would be of benefit... But perhaps, I have been out in left field, and it's pointless, to keep throwing balls back, that no one can, or wants to catch...

Tiny Dancer... Hey...I was joking... But, my father did lecture me a lot, never about credit or money... Which may have made my life a bit easier, when it was all tied up... But, money and material possessions, I have ... Which really has very little real value, in the scheme of things... Unlike good friendships special family outings, quality time... with someone that truly cares for you.. I am afraid you don't understand my sense of humor, and cannot see the field, for the trees... I am very unique and I am seeing, easily misunderstood..

Yep, and do you realise its all run from an apt. in Canada , along with about 10 other sites, and the quality is poor, they invest nothing, but there're always Newbies, they really dont care about the 100 or so who support the blogs, we're just cannon fodder, im outa here when my existing sub. runs out next month, been here nearly 4 yrs, so its a bit of a paradox i enrol in an major site and meet the gal of my dreams, never been so happy for 40 odd yrs.

Don't get me wrong, I love a bargain, but I will acquire anything I want if I think is worth the price. But I think this is a sneak attack on the unsuspecting...Especially when you are supposed to be LURING your friends onto this site(Notice the new tab to the left about inviting friends?) Then they quickly, without a word up it 33%....and they know most people have automatic renew. I just do NOT like to see people being taken..no matter how much $$$ they have. ~T~

I didn't realise. You would of thought they'd issue an email to notify us first. I think that's a steep increase considering the website has not improved. sarah

~ T ~ You're right ! I didn't ! But, that's always been a bad habit of mine, not looking at price tags, I know ...that's insane... But blame it on my Dad... Pauline Maria !!! That changed when I went through that rough patch, awhile back, now I'm back to doing it again... Seriously, I am not a spendrthrift, although this comment, has that ring to it... I really don't shop that often, but when I see something I really like, it will be going home with me... : )
