A few narcissistic individuals are ruining it for everyone.


Yesterday I was out for most of the day with Prue (my daughter) so today, I have been busy preparing for the conference I will be attending tomorrow and Thursday.I am looking forward to it but my immediate dilemma is what to wear, as the weather has been so unpredictable lol.It was lovely to spend some time with Prue as the last 2 weeks have been exceptionally difficult personally. I won’t go into specifics but I have had a few issues to deal with and some quality time with Prue really lifted my spirits!

Unfortunately, these were soon dampened when I logged on and endeavoured to make my submission to Alphainventions. The current practise of snipers taking over and preventing anyone from getting into the cycle has seen many of the more interesting sites disappear, which is a shame for those genuine bloggers, who enjoy exploring new sites. A few narcissistic individuals are ruining it for everyone. Name and shame them, better still block them all together, so those with something relevant to say will return!

  1. I agree with your comments about Alphainventions. A cool site has been overrun by businesspeople to get some free advertising or the same few people who fancy themselves as ‘artists’ who never have anything to contribute,only to thrust their work down everyone’s throats incessantly. I see today a ticketing authority is taking advantage of the system. Where are the checks and balances????????????

  2. Hi Maureen,
    I noticed spammers on the alpha site too. In fact when I insert my blog name two versions come up. One has an inverted letter and the link is hijacked to a sales site. Go figure. It’s hard to imagine that people make money with boring monetized blogs anyways.

    I found a few friendly sites at Alpha anyways like yours which is great.

  3. Hi, thank you so much. You are very kind. I think it’s a shame that corporate influences are hijacking what is meant to be a networking site for bloggers. I agree, there are many brilliant sites but these are starting to disappear because they too are becoming fed up with these spammers.

  4. Hi Maureen,
    I may have been guilty of bumping you from time to time, however, I have also been victim to consistently being bumped by Ticketing Authority. Anyways, again, my apologies if I have bumped you or other posters here a few times šŸ™‚

  5. Hi Malice,
    We all know who the culprits are, commercial enterprises mainly. Like you, I have bumped people off (my apologies) although it is becoming rare for me to see my name in the cycle after I have done so.

  6. I agree with all and I hate bumping people, too. So frustrating to see the same commercial sites keep popping up.

    On a softer note, I love your blog, Maureen. Very pretty!

  7. I see what you mean over at Alpha Inventions too. I only started with that site a couple of weeks ago and it was super early am, as in before the sun EVEN thinks about rising. Anyway…at first I got all kinds of hits and now no matter how long I sit there, bumping nice well written blogs (like yours, and classik) I haven’t seen mine for a good 4 or 5 days now. I thought it was me.
    Thanks for the heads up and keep blogging cause it looks good

  8. Thanks Chey Anne for your comment. Hang in there because we are all in the same boat. šŸ™‚

  9. Hey guys. I apologize for the inconvenience, and I didn’t expect the site to grow at such a fast rate, but I try to think quick, and eliminate problems like this.

  10. hey Maureen – said ticket service was stealing content from sports bloggers like myself!

    Their greed led to their being caught and served notice.

    Now to eliminate their brethren…

  11. Hi Maureen,

    Nice to “bump” into you again… I think alpha has things sorted a bit better now, with a delayed entry system. We should all get a bit longer run in the cycle this way as there is no rapid submission. I think Alpha is only going to get better. Clever fellow…

    Take care, and keep blogging. If we keep it all in our heads, they will surely explode… šŸ˜‰

  12. Hi,

    I “bumped” you a couple of time too.

    I must say the shock I received when I started seeing “Porn Sites”, “Corporate Sites” and even MLM Sites appearing on Alphainventions.

    I got “bumped” ever too often by a few specific (Crazy)bloggers and out of revenge, I created a “bot” to launch instant entry into the Blog entry box for a straight 1 hour days ago. Even though it gave me almost 500 hits in that one hour, I must say I felt bad for bumping away genuine bloggers. These undesirable people are just trying to get free advertising.

    I can understand your frustration to be “bumped”.

    Let’s keep alphainventions “clean” and do our job to “Bumped” away undesirable sites from flooding up.

    By the way, Your blog is Great!

  13. Hi Jaded,
    So pleased to receive your message. I have visited your site several times. Very nice šŸ™‚

  14. Maureen,

    No problem about the bumping thing. I’ve probably bumped you as well. After all, somebody is going to get bumped when one posts their blog.

    I wish you the best of luck with your blog.

  15. Hey maureenj, I noticed this the other day. I would put in the link for my site, and it would never show up in the cycle. And when I put in my link, it would automatically go to someone else’s site. It’s too bad that some people out there are too selfish to let everyone’s blog have their turn. And their blogs aren’t even interesting anyway. Nice post.

  16. Hi House.
    Thanks for your comment. I have added you to my Blogroll. I hope this is ok.
    You have a great site too!
    Maureen šŸ™‚
