TALKING ABOUT NEW SITES...
 
TAKE A  LOOK ...

Did you know that I uploaded something on my blog yesterday?
Did you know that I uploaded something this morning?
Did you know that I intend to upload something tomorrow?
 
Do we have to know all the things we do on our personal blogs / sites?
 
Vanda does not advertise her site on a regular basis.
Nor does Alenka.
Nor does Sandra (Kita19).
And I could continue the list.
 
Remember the discussion about the advertising of one īs worksheets: "What if everybody did that?"? What about applying it to personal blogs and sites?
 
This constant advertising of personal blogs or sites is not very far from spam.
 
One last thing: please, give primary sources!! Most of the time, we are redirected to personal blogs and nothing has been done with the interesting documents / videos / etc. that have been found elsewhere on the net!
 
I īm sorry if I am too direct. I know that some of you will agree with me (I hope!) and others won īt.
 
I wish you all a nice weekend!

I think this is a difficult one. I noticed that on iSLCollective, a similar site to this, they are asking for contributions from members. We aren īt asked here, but there must be running costs.

I think that knowledge is a good thing; sharing good websites with each other is great. So it īs nice to know about this evalinamaria site, and it HAS been advertised on here before, by the way. However, theirs is not a free site, you have to pay. Therefore, in my opinion, they should be charged to place the advert. Insofar as I know, there īs no mechanism for that on here, so they should  make a donation. Maybe they do. Victor īs opinion on this issue is of course, paramount, he must decide where this goes, but that īs my twopenn īorth.

Well, both evelinamaria and xani are great contributors at eslprintables.They are trying to do something different by selling some of their worksheets.I am not against  them letting us know. We are not obliged to buy anything. On the other hand we might find something worth purchasing.
 
PS:You both look wonderful in the photo.

Evelinamaria, you are wrong: I do like discovering new sites and blogs. I just don īt like it when the links are repeatedly given to the detriment of other posts (like requests)! Wink
As I said, Vanda does not constantly advertise her site and it is a really good one, just like yours!
Good luck with your website! I know it is a wonderful adventure!
It is interesting to read the different opinions. Wink

But don īt you think this trend (i.e. constanly advertising one īs personal blog / site) is developing?

I see it as a different way of sharing, which is what we have always done here.

You know, it doesn īt bother me that much as I don īt have a blog and don īt sell ws so I don īt feel it being unfair to meWink
There are always new members here, who probably don īt have enough points to download lots of quality stuff which Evelina Maria and Xani offer here on the site for free download, but who can probably be interested and can afford to pay a reasonable price for a whole pack of stuff which is available on their website. I guess that īs their target group. So if the webmaster doesn īt mind why would I?
BTW over the past five months it īs only been mentioned 8 times on the forum, so I don īt really think it īs really spamming. Some members here seem to be very appreciative.
