Feast and Famine at Blogmad

Who could have predicted that giving every member on Blogmad 50 free credits would result in the complete reversal of the credit drain for everyone.

Put it this way... the day before the giveaway, I used over 100 credits. In the past 48 hours I've used 15. Of course, I am still building up my credits, so I am prepared for the hour when the madness begins again. And if you use Blogmad, you know that day is fast approaching, probably sooner rather than later.

Anyone else going through the Blogmad surfing withdrawals?

Hmm...I am sure it is me, but I am not sure what you mean...

I meant, who else is missing the traffic(because with Blogmad surfing being spread out across so many other blogs, my site isn't coming up the way it used to).

how do you know it is not coming up the way it used to?

I think Mr. Fab mentioned something in his blog about his suspicions of how the credits aren't as high on the priority now that credits can be bought.

The reason I suspect that this is a temporary thing caused by the 50 free credits sitewide is how stark the change was and when it happened. About 2 AM EST the morning before the free credits were officially given out it was like the locomotive of credit use just stopped dead, and a lot of people noticed it that first day.

Credit use was slower until a month or so ago, but it was never THIS slow, and with over 500 credits in my account, there is ample material to raid now, so I think this is just a temporary respite from the 200+ credit use days.

Looking at my sitemeter, you can see the exact date it happened, as it is a literal flatline statistically.

That's what's been happening.
Slow slow slow.

Of course, this process seems to be taking longer than I first suspected it would.
