Blogrush: Another post on traffic - NOT!

Regular readers of my blogs might notice that the Blogrush widget is gone. I had considered several times, over the past few weeks, about removing it. Made the decision today.

For those not familiar with Blogrush, here is how it is supposed to work:

You sign up

You put the widget on your blog

The number of times your site (and widget) are loaded (and bonus points you get) determines the number of times your most recent post title is displayed on ANOTHER blog in someone elses widget

Goal: Click throughs and readers from those other blogs

In the, probably, 1000s of displays of my post titles, I've had about a dozen readers. Not a great ROI in my opinion for taking up that much space on my blogs.
