New Look, New Feel, New Era

I’m going try to do a cutover this weekend, and get started with the all new blog. I’ve already spent way too much time on this than I should have, but I’m picky about getting the look and feel right, and striking a balance between running ads that have a reasonable return on space investment, and ad placement that’s not annoying. I also need to work on how to cut the tables from here over that contain all the new posts and comments, without blowing away the new configuration on my copy. If it doesn’t happen, it means I ran into problems. If I do this right, you shouldn’t notice anything. If I really do it right, you could be reading, click to the next post, and bang… new blog.

    As long as you don’t have animated ads. I’ve had to bring down the adblocker hammer on instapundit because of that.

    Because I’ll be using some affiliate program, I won’t have total control over the ads that appear… but I’m not going to get offended if someone blocks the ads. Most regular readers will learn to tune them out anyway, so they won’t be worth as much to me :)

    It’s mostly people coming in on search engines that will make the bucks.

    Well, that’s one advantage of most browsing on android – I have to enable to flash ads in the first place…

    (And the iOs folks won’t see them at all. Wonder if the ad companies have realized that yet.)
