I see posts all the time that link to reviews, news, and discussions on other websites. However, when I tried to make a post including a link to a blog entry, I got a message saying that links to blogspot are not allowed. How come links to some websites are allowed and some are not?

Because of excessive link and post spam from blogspot added to SideReel, unfortunately we had to ban the site overall since the spam links hugely outweighed the good links added from blogspot.

We love having users like you add reviews and news, and in general you are very welcome to link back to the source from your post. If there's a way to add the link with an unblocked url shortener or something else of the sort, it'd be great to have your content plus blog link. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Ok, thank you! It took awhile to find a link shortener that was allowed, but I found one that works.
