Seen and unseen
I’m told that when a reader of this humble blog clicks to a specific post (rather than just scrolling through recent posts) that ads have been appearing at the bottom of the screen. I’ve not seen these. Perhaps that is because I am the administrator of the blog and so they are hidden from me. (One worthy person has speculated that since I am using the free WordPress platform hosting, these ads are part of the terms of agreement I blithely clicked through.)
This is not my doing. I have not solicited or authorized any ads on this blog, and since I don’t know what they are promoting, I can’t even say that I approve or disapprove of the content. So be warned, gentle reader, that if you see ads here, they come from “the other” that is the internet.
I’ve always been skeptical about ads on blogs anyway. Unless you are someone who gets thousands and thousands of visits a day, I doubt that such ads provide enough revenue to compensate for the inherent smarminess of the business. But I don’t know much about this sort of thing, so correct me if I’m wrong.
In other news, you will now see share buttons at the bottom of the posts so you can spread the word about my rambling and incoherent entries on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus. I suppose I vaguely understand what this means, and I’ve already had visitors from both Facebook and Twitter as a result.
Anyway, now I’m hip.
