Thanks for your article — it was very insightful. I, too, can’t really plan to/afford to spend much time on Simily unless things change. I see that many others have already dropped out of Simily for now. I’m not sure what would attract a new writer at this point. I’d say they have a month or two to make changes or else there won’t be anything there. Of course, they could always re-launch and build a site based on what they’ve learned from this experience.
