Today, I received a very non professional email saying that bloggers are no longer going to be compensated for reviews as of Monday at 12 pm. What the heck is this? That is absolutely no notice... and was worded not professionally at all. Why is this? What is happening? I am really heated.

I'm not a blogger so this doesn't really affect me, but that's really not right if they barely gave any notice. I hope they'll at least replace it with something similar or something.

I really hope so. I had bought over $200 worth of product to review with my own money... and now all of it was for nothing.

It is a huge hit to take, theres no question about it. It could have been handeld a liitle better but from what I can tell this was a very last minute decission. Theres still a ton of unanswered questions, so hopefully we will recieve a more detailed email soon.

Oh my, I just got my blog up and running. I have been collecting followers and paciently waiting for my blog to take off so I could participate in the program also. A sad day.

I'm a little confused because I thought this program was discontinued months ago. I am a blogger and used to do reviews on my site. It was cancelled so I started doing reviews online instead.

Nope, I've gotten 2 payments via gift card in the last 6 wks for my eden bloggers posts and the email said to email any planned or wanted blog posts by 12pm Monday for payments, so i sent in 2 so i hope i get payment for them.

and it makes no sense unless people were taking advantage of it

I was pretty bummed to hear about it, too. It would have been nice to have some kind of warning. It seems like such an odd place to make cuts- I know I found EF via blog posts, and I imagine that's how a lot of people first end up here. If your favorite blogger is posting about a site every couple of weeks, you're bound to get curious eventually.

I guess I was especially grumpy about it because it felt like one more thing in a string of cuts lately. First no more SexIs trivia, then no more Naked Reader Book Club, then no sponsored blog posts.

Wow, I had no idea all those other things were gone as well! This makes me truly sad

You can still blog about EF... there is nothing stopping you from doing that.

I know if I don't get compensated for writing about EF I still do because it is still beneficial and fun and I am helping my readers make more informed choices when they go to make a sex toy purchase. Be it from EF or from another place.

I was also very disappointed to receive that email!!!! I have now joined the onsite review program, so I am still sticking with EF, even though I wasn't thrilled with the super quick changes with the blogger program!

I agree with what you said 100%. It's a huge bitter pill to swallow but if you stop and look at it, nothing is really stoping you from bloging about EF. So what if your not compensated, to be honest it wasn't that much anyways so theres really no big lose there. I still love EF and I know companies need to change in order to keep things rolling. I seriously think we will see all kinds of new and exciting things from EF in the future. Maybe another double points week would help soften the blow!
