Lack of Quality in Articles Published on Saving Advice

May 18th, 2016 at 06:08 pm

I am disgusted about the lack of quality content in the articles being published here on Saving Advice.

Just now I noticed there is a recent article about how to mooch a free meal from others. Mad

The endless articles (and I do use that term quite loosely) about "Is Target open on Belly Button Day?" and "Are banks open on Mother's Day?" were bad enough. But this is a new low.

Text is and Link is

    I agree. I don't know what the point is. The content over the last few months is deplorable. I will always come here for the blogs. As far as the site content, I lost interest long ago.

    It's all about marketing and using keywords to keep the site I hear. I agree that the articles are terrible. I guess saving money isn't fun/coo/interesting on it's own to get people to the site. I ignore it...otherwise it comes down to whether I want to still blog and have readers for free.

    I know its something that's been talked about on the message boards, if you wanted more details

    We were told a few months ago that the articles would be improving. Shortly after that they got stupider, more frequent, and --dare I say-- immature. We have professional writers among us who could do 1000 times better and who already know what they are talking about. Wish some of you writers would submit some content for pay.

    Telling people not to put themselves in a situation where someone would expect anything from them that might compromise their safety after giving them advice on how to do just that is not okay. There is cheap and then there is unethical. This smacks of the latter. And also, more than one thing on this list is blatantly sexist. Most of it is. I am shocked it was written by a female. She must be awfully young if she thinks this behavior is a good idea. I would hate to be the type of person that would follow any of the advice on that list, except accepting family dinner invitations.

    Glad I don't look at other areas of the site. I come to the blogs only. And still thankful for the ad-blocking tips shared with me a month or two ago.

    What are the tips, Jenn? I would love to block those ads!

    Some of the articles in the last few days have been alright: eg how to avoid poverty... but today I clicked on a couple of articles and you see a paragraph and then you are forced to answer a one or two question survey to continue reading the article???? Cannot be bothered with that.

  9. Jenn Says:

    Petunia, I don't toggle the 'notify me of comments' box so I didn't see your question earlier. I think it was CCF that put a link to free ad-blocking software it's worked like a charm on the obnoxious ads.

    I rarely go to the forums, and even more rarely look at, let alone read the articles.
