Blog: SnapShots is gone ...

We put up a poll on whether to keep SnapShots or let it go: Blog Poll: Should we keep SnapShots?

The responses to the poll put SnapShots out.

While the feature can be handy, we try and make a point of labelling any link with a short (italicized) description of where the link will take you.

The breaker for us, and one of the main reasons behind initiating the poll, was the occasional underlined word with an ad tied to it that did not fit in with our blog and its gist. The other reason was some of the ads placed around the screenshot of the page the link was leading to. There were a few other little things that grew to be irritating from a blog management point of view too.

Suffice it to say, SnapShots is now gone!

Thanks for your input! :)
