What Should You Do When You Misguide People?

I am feeling unbelievably guilty right now.  If you’re a BlogJob friend you already know why, but for those of you who don’t, have another embarrassing recap.

So in the past week or two, I’ve been highly recommending the paid-to-click (PTC) website BuxBery.  I was impressed that they were shooting out ad after ad since none of my other PTC websites are that quick at giving me ads.  Longtime users of PTC websites such as NeoBux and ClixSense can chime in if they have more information on this upcoming point, but it seems to me that these websites cap your earnings for a day so you don’t drain them of money.  I’m not 100% sure this is true, but certainly I haven’t made 50 cents or more on NeoBux or Clixsense in one day like I did with BuxBery.  Well, there’s a huge catch with using BuxBery.  They’ve been having complaints of users not getting paid and in response they’ve taken off two forms of payment options, one being the ultra-popular PayPal.  This is problematic if you are (well, were) a user who counted on getting PayPal money.  I didn’t know about this until Sunday, March 22 when BlogJob user “Dick” said BuxBery was in trouble.  I asked why, since I had just visited the site and had no problems clicking on ads.  Well, that was when they removed PayPal and the other payment method, only leaving Perfect Money (whatever that is) as the redemption option.  I am not happy with BuxBery and I’m even more not happy with myself.  I promoted them on various status updates because I just thought they had all those ads to be nice to their users.  Ugh!

I don’t know how to rectify my mistake in promoting BuxBery.  This isn’t as easy as deleting a blog post or adding an ETA message to tell users “Never mind, I was dead wrong”.  The good thing about me not having many followers on social media sites outside of BlogJob is that less people are mislead, but some of my BlogJob friends got curious about BuxBery based on my posts.  It’s too late for me to undo all those posts.  How do other bloggers go about correcting mistakes about questionable websites?  I’ve never considered how to handle a situation like this.
