So after accumulating a bit of credits on Blogrush, and only getting maybe 2 hits in return I'll be taking down the widget shortly. I even made them a complementary going away present with my 2nd grade MS paint skills.
Here's the latest word about Blogrush's update from the Blogrush Blog:
UPDATE: Tuesday, October 16th: We’re experiencing a delay with some minor server issues. We are working on them and will start releasing Phase 2 piece-by-piece very soon. Thanks for your patience.So long, and thank you for all the fish. (from Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy if you didn't catch that.)
