Selling Out

I’m going to be running some trial ads on this blog over the next few weeks, just to see if they can bring in some revenue. Hopefully they won’t be too intrusive, but it might take a while to get the configuration right. If anyone finds them too annoying (to the point you don’t want to visit any more) let me know, but I’ll try to avoid that.

  1. Good luck with it and don’t forget reading space on tablets is limiteed for those of us who use them as our main reading tool.

    And please don’t include one of those awful sticky footer banners that TimW tried on CT,unless you are a CSS guru and can make it stick. His bounced around all over when scrolling and was a real distraction.

  2. As advertising is everywhere (and for a time paid my wages years ago) then I have no problem with it. Good luck.

  3. I’m doubt that the three people left in the world who don’t use an adblocker visit your site.

    Anyway, enjoy your money. Might be enough for a pint after a few years.

  4. Looking forward to seeing what sort of people your advertisers think your readers are.

  5. @Bardon,

    One of my ex-army mates (who, if he were a tomcat I would have taken to the vets a long time ago and had him seen to) is a real pervert and keeps sending me links to “Gentlemens Entertainment” websites. These included but were not limited to dwarf porn, shemales, SSBBW – do yourself a favour and DON’T enter that as a search item – and “Granny Fanny”. For a while he had a thing about amputee Russian brides with suggestions that I should take advantage of the “ladies” on offer. Judging by their pictures, they were all dressed for warm weather. As he put it, they had at least 25% off …

    So I’m a bit worried about the Russian and Chinese brides thing. Just saying, is all …

  6. Get a job!

    Ouch! Especially coming from a Scouser. Next I’ll have Bill Cosby telling me to treat women better.

    So am I! I’m expecting something along these lines:

    One of my ex-army mates (who, if he were a tomcat I would have taken to the vets a long time ago and had him seen to) is a real pervert

    Ahem.

  8. Some Russian Brides and Chinese girlfriends might brighten up the place.

    A few lying around wouldn’t go amiss, would they?

    Always cheered me up on boring Wednesdays – an email from a lovely Ukrainian who had discovered my work email and decided I was her dream man who could fix her unfortunate lack of clothing
