Am I the only person going nuts with all the pop-up boxes on websites and blogs?
Enough already! It’s as bad as dealing with 20 commercials every 10 minutes during a television show!
Come on as frustrating as that is, I’m used to it and avoid the dreaded avalanche by recording and fast forwarding through the commercials.
But I just thought TV commercials were the most frustrating sales pitch. Right up there next to the telemarketing phone calls during dinner.
That is, until someone invented the website pop-up box!
This trend needs to fade away and soon.
I hate clicking on a new website, only to have my screen blocked by a huge square wanting me to either, a) buy something or b) subscribe for a newsletter.
We all want more readers and followers. We all want people to like our blogs, and buy our books. However, I’m not sure startling visitors with a gotcha is the way to do it.
So what do you guys out in cyberspace think? I’m I off my rocker here? Do you mind the pop-ups?
Let’s talk. Tell me what you think. Convince me I’m wrong. Pull me over to the dark side. LOL
I concede some of my readers might want to add a pop up box and I do aim to please. So I hope the following video helps.
