Bloggers Beware…

I recently wrote a blog review about two weight loss online programs. I had tried both, personally and was attempting to give my review of both as I get a lot of search engine visits to my blog because of a previous piece that I wrote about losing weight while eating dessert.

Unfortunately, it appears that the Powers That Be in WordPress, looked upon my blog entry as an advertisement of some kind for one or the other of these programs and suspended my blog for three days.

I neither work for either of the companies that I was reviewing nor, was I getting any sort of compensation in any form from either one. I was simply comparing two online weight loss methods that I, personally had tried, along with the pros and cons to both from my own experiences.

The bottom line Fellow Bloggers, is that it’s prudent to be extremely careful in how you word your blog entries if you are doing a review. It may be misconstrued as a violation of WordPress Terms of Use…or that of any other blog provider.

And, by the way, I never did receive an answer as to why my blog was suspended. I had to guess at it and still haven’t received an answer. It’s simply back up, without explanation.

Be careful in how you word your entries so as not to fall into the “gray category” of misunderstandings or you could lose your blog and heaven knows, it takes time to write them. It’s hard to see them down and inaccessible when it’s avoidable.
