Removal of Advertisements.

For the past 13 months I’ve been receiving $25 a month advertisement pay for the inclusion of four text links at the bottom of each page here at It was hardly an annoyance except to those people who felt betrayed (read: Ryan Schenk and Jon Abad*) and for my google strength which pretty much dropped off the proverbial map.

The ads themselves didn’t bother me at all and the google drop simply meant fewer passers by. Despite this, today I removed the advertisements from the website. This doesn’t mean I won’t sell out again, I assure you that I will – but I’d like to do it with a little more finesse. I’m hoping to switch my advertising type to one that’s more centered on specific local businesses. I’m not exactly sure how I’ll make it work, but I’ll probably be testing a few things in the background over the coming months. We’ll see how well it comes together.

*especially hilarious about the betrayal was Jon and Schenk’s disclaimer removing all responsibility to any potential advertising frustrations.

    I am glad to see the links gone.
    Local business recommendations make a lot more sense.

    As long as there aren’t any popups. Or pop-unders. Or any type of popping.
    Unless said popping is followed by locking and perhaps some sort of break dancing tournament.

    What about Pop Tarts? I know they probably turn people’s insides into something unholy, but I do love that radioactive-looking, frosted deliciousness.
