For the more successful blogger who makes a steady income stream from their craft, congratulations. The $9 montly service charge likely isn't an issue. You are likely one of the lovely few who pays for the fancier edition of rafflecopter.
For the smaller or swap only blog, this is an issue. I can accept that the service is worth paying for, but it doesn't make sense for me to pay for a blogging service when blogging isn't really paying me.

Many other bloggers have complained, raised concerns, and sought out new ideas. It's not like we can all mass-migrate to the bloglovin' of passion fruit. There's no such thing as far as I know.
So....here is my personal solution for re•solve sponsorships:All of my ads will be available at the posted rate in August. Swaps will still be available as well. Contact me to swap.
From September on (at least for the forseeable future), all of my ads will be free and chosen at random through the rafflecopter. Five spaces, all of the same size, will be up for grabs each month. I will post the rafflecopter on the last Monday of each month and ads will go up on the first of the following month.
Where does that leave me? I don't know. But I'm happy to help my fellow bloggers and hope that karma will make its way back to me in the end.
