I’m pretty sure I pegged it, when in the previous post I mentioned that as soon as google picked up that post, I’d be removed from today.com.
Well, I checked my email and I did got an email and this is what it said:
Dear VIP Blogger COOKWITHME.TODAY.COM, (please do not direct anymore traffic there…. visit www.dailydishrecipes.com instead – it’s better!)
You have not consistently posted since becoming a VIP member.
We only retain VIP members who consistently post as this benefits

I will admit it was certainly not what I expected. I was surprised. Only because I got removed for not posting regularly and not because I posted a hateful review of their precious website. Hmm…..
So then, I went to sign into today.com for the heck of it. (actually I wanted to look at which posts were not paid because they were “duplicate dates”, but that’s beside the point). Obviously I couldn’t. I was truly removed, but I got a sweet little (gag) message that said that today.com wanted me back.
So it was done and over and I could move on. haha yeah well, last night I went back and when I first typed in today.com NOTHING came up (as in page not found). I tried it three or four times and I still got not page.
Then, I finally was able to sign in except I am not able to look at any of my posts. I’m able to look at the blog control panel where is shows the last few comments on your blog and where you select whether you want to write a post, edit a post, create a page… etc. etc. but it won’t let me click on anything and when I try to access the forums I get “Your account is inactive. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help if you think this is a mistake.” THEN when I access the VIP Stats page, I get “###ALERT###
you’re not a VIP blogger” < —hehe they spelled YOU’RE right this time.
Anyway, weirdness all around. I’m so glad not to be with them anymore. Now, to get all the traffic I was bringing them to refocus on my new site!
I got THIS in my email this morning and I did NOT sign up for advertising?
Cook With Nicole:
We have noticed that you have signed up the Today.com Advertising
account simplywriting and have not purchased advertising yet.
So, should I advertise my NEW blog over there? Kidding!
