Bye Bye Snap Shots

Snap Shots

Soooo….I was really excited when I happened across Snapshots on some other blogophites site. Naturally, like a lemming to the cliff I went, and immediately downloaded, installed and reveled in the new shiny-ness popping up on my blog.

Well, the shiny-ness has dulled to a polished glow, and I’ve quickly gotten mildly annoyed with the incessant popping-uppedness of these ridiculous bubbles that seem to have crept up everywhere.

When I see the telltale magnifying glass on the end of a link, I now feel like I’m in a mine field and have to gingerly navigate through the sentences of each paragraph in order to hold onto my sanity by the end of the article.

So, in an effort to make mine, and everyone elses life a little less hectic, I’ve removed said Snapshots from my writings. Read in ease my friends, read in ease.

    it really did seem like a good idea, but you are right that it gets annoying really quickly. it's cool if there are only a couple of links in an article but if there are a lot of them it actually makes it hard to read… specially if you are like me and run the mouse pointer across the words as you read.

    I am exactly like you, lol. I have to highlight each paragraph as I read it. I really don't know what I was thinking, I don't like little pop ups like that in the first place, so why would I choose to have something put pop ups on EVERY link?? I guess I was just feeling a little goofy that day.
