new poll

Hi everyone, You all know how to make a girl fell good :) And laugh!! There were SOOO many FUNNY comments! I have decided to go with the huge majority of you and say oh well if some people leave. And really I mean it this time :)
AND we all need to give a BIG round of applause to a lady named Joyce. She helped me late into the night, last night. I removed what ever she told me to and she would go check to see if pop-ups came up. The bummer is I had to get rid of all my widgets. I guess nothing is really free... unless it is from me of course hehehehe.....
Joyce showed me in the agreement you "sign" when you put the widget on you blog you basically agree to let third party ads on you site.
  1. Some of the Products and Services are supported by advertising, enabling WIDGEO to provide them to you at no cost. When you use these free services, you agree to allow WIDGEO to display advertising, including third party advertising, through the Products and Services.

So I guess I will have no cute little widgets. And the one I liked the most , the C-Box, was the last to go.... and it looks like that was the problem all along. I really want to put my slide shows and e-referral back up but I don't think I will. I don't want this to all happen again.
I am going to put up a new poll- Please answer it ever time you visit. And I will put up a new freebie list soon. Probably Monday.
Again thank you for all you comments and to those who went out of their way to help me with e-mails and such. I bet the haters will secretly come back... how can they stay away? Once you are hooked, your hooked for life LOL!!! Have a good weekend :) Ginger

You're welcome!
Glad I could help! ;-)
Slides shouldn't be a problem, Ginger, I don't think that they generate pop-ups!

Just as Jack Sparrow says "Sticks and Stones, Love. Sticks and Stones."
Never mind about the nasty emails.
It's only words after all. I love your site and thankful your hobby is collecting "freebies". (lol)
By the way what kindof duffas would blame "you" for their problems?
Happy to say I'm sticking around and will eagerly await you Monday list. Have a wonderful weekend!

Glad you got it worked out. Computers can be so frustrating!!!

carjazi said...

So glad you're not leaving us. Sorry to hear about the widgets, but it really makes sense. And I'm sure the haters will be back. At least you know they're hooked for life. Enjoy your weekend.

Antje said...

Doing the happy dance here!

I am more than happy that you decided to keep your blog up and running. I just recently found you and don't want to loose you ever! LOL

But really - it is the right decision. And all those nasty people should just stay away if they don't want those cool freebies - their loss!

Thanks for all your hard work!

Lee said...

Hi Ginger, so glad you got this all sorted, you put so much work into this blog, you deserve hassle free blogging! Thanks for the info on the widgets too, I didn't know some of these snuck this little term in. I'll certainly be double checking before adding anymore widgets to my already widget heavy blog!

Lee

PS: I have some freebie papers up on my blog at the moment, and will also be adding another freebie this weekend...

I'm so glad you got things fixed! I was having a problem after I downloaded somebody's freebie about a week ago - dunno if it was one of yours - and then my internet was wacky - got a new virus program and things are getting back to normal. I LOVE the goodies you find for us and I was really missing them - love that Beach Glass Kit too! - kathrynazh

Oh sweet love, I am SO sorry that you have experienced such unwarranted anger from a few in SCRAPLAND! Guess they don't understand what LIFE is and that NOTHING is perfect!

THANK YOU Joyce for helping Ginger figure out what was causing her blog woes! You ROCK ... and then SOME!

Ginger, I am leaving you with a BIG dose of LOVIN' and I hope to visit at least once or twice before we leave for Washington to watch my baby girl say "I DO"!!!

You rest easy and RELAX this weekend - I hope this fiasco has not caused any issues with your auto-immune disease.

BIG, BIG HUGS and a BIG SMACKAROO!
Linda :)

THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO! =) one of the best on the net...in my opinion! I appreciate your efforts

Marilene said...

YAY! i'm glad you decided to stay on!

SassyPixie said...

There is a whole blog train that starts at ScrapMatters.com. Sad to see your C-Box gone!!

Peggie said...

I haven't had any problems with your site. I do have a pop-up blocker and
great virus and spam control software. All I have gotten from your site are great freebies with less surfing! Thanks a whole bunch!!

Susie~g said...

You know what? I come to your site all the time and I have never had a real problem. My virus scan has never warned me about your site. It has warned me before but never here. Glad you worked it all out.

Anonymous said...

Pop ups or not...I'm a hooked for lifer with you! :o) You're awesome and don't let anyone tell you any different! Keep up all that you do. You are very much appreciated!
BIG HUG FOR (((((GINGER)))))

Elaine said...

Wow just found your blog, Love it! Beach Glass is so beautiful, Thank you so much!!

Jen Graham said...

Yay to no more pop-ups! I am glad it got fixed.

I LOVE the beach glass set. It is just gorgeous!

Anonymous said...

Thanks so much for working hard on that I love your site and visit everyday even thru the popups lol. Today your page is also loading faster, kudos to you (smile).

Tirza said...

Hi Ginger, I, too, am happy that you have finally figured out what the problems were, though I didn't experience any when visiting your site.

I have an award for you on my blog. Come see what and what to do next.

kelly said...

Yay! And a big thank you to Joyce. No pop ups this time either! Although, I would still come anyway, you know all about the addiction. I have had my nose stuck in Breaking Dawn since last night and yet I still managed to get off my bottom and come check your blog!

RoseAddict said...

It's hard to believe how rude -- and stupid -- some people can be. It's YOUR fault that she's too stupid to turn on a pop-up blocker? The only times I got pop-ups from your site (and this confused me at first, since my blocker normally works very well) was when I had your site open, but I had gone elsewhere and hit the control button just as your site decided to load a pop-up. I solved that easily enough by grabbing your great links and then closing your site before going to the other sites.

I'm glad you've solved the issue. I'm really surprised that c-box had anything to do with it, as I go to several other sites that use that, and I have no problem with that. Maybe c-box has added some sort of pop-ups recently, or if you have had c-box for quite a while, maybe they've actually removed the bad stuff and it would now be safe for you to download again. Who knows?

Thanks for all the links!

Hummie said...

Oh, I've seen other blogs have this problem in the past.

I am wondering if it was something someone posted in the cbox? I've had to ban people from mine before.

*Note*

*Some freebies only last for 1 day... and depending on your time zone by the time you get here you might only have a short time to download. If you like something get it ASAP! You just never know some freebies last a long time and some expire very quickly. If you get to a page and the freebie is not there most likely it has expired.*
