Blogging, Internet

Busty Babes and Hairy Marys

You may have noticed (well, it’s bleedin’ obvious) that I’m toying with ads on Perking the Pansies in the hope it might toss a few coppers into the family coffers. I’ve enrolled in the WordPress WordAds scheme (not to be confused with Google’s Adwords). I confess I’m a bit ambivalent about the whole enterprise. Having been dragged up on the BBC, excessive advertising on websites tends to put me off. Clearly, WordPress haven’t yet worked out the finer technical detail. The size and placement of the ads (over which I have no control) has buggered up my pansy banner which no longer stretches across the top of the page. Being an anal kind of boy (no sniggering at the back), this upsets my Libran equilibrium. It’s early days and I’ll let it run for a while. Rest assured, I’ll be calling the whole thing off if there’s the slightest hint of nipple clamps, busty babes from Bridlington or hairy marys from Margate. Mine’s a family show.

PS After a few months and meagre earnings, I decided to turn the ads off.

  1. I can understand the hope that ads on our blogs could help us earn some money. I have a couple of links on my sidebar which pay me a regular monthly amount, but I prefer them to be subtle…almost unnoticeable..which they are.

    My honest opinion, for what it’s worth, is that as soon as a blog becomes covered in ads, I lose interest, and I’ve heard others say the same. I don’t like the way your blog is being affected by all this. The post content is running into the sidebar, making it difficult to read the ends of the lines, then a large ad is on top of that. It would be a great pity if your readership was significantly reduced as a result xx

  2. Thanks for the comments and letting me know your concerns. I share many of them. I’m going to let it run for a while to see how it goes. If it starts to detract, off they come!
