Is it just me or does Writing.com have a lot of ads and very little real substance?
I've seen it advertised in literary magazines and the web site appears in my Google search periodically, so tonight I decided to spend some time exploring the web site.
In the 10 minutes that I spent on the site tonight, I saw very little real information other than Adsense advertisements and many of the links I did attempt to access were broken links that don't actually connect to anything.
It was kind of a disapointment after I had to fill out a questionaire to "register" on the site. Registering doesn't appear to do anything except signify that I agree to read a lot advertisements.
Am I being to critical?
Did I miss something?
From now on I think I'll stick with Absolute Write and individual blogs when I want to read about writing.
Moral of this story: "If you want to learn about writing, talk to actual writers."
I think I'll skip the marketing web sites disguised as writing sites from now on.
