So readers, how do we feel about promotions generally.
I ask for two reasons.
1. I have clicked the google ad sense box and so my blog now has some ads on it. I have mixed feelings on this. I don't think much of the look of the ads themselves, but think they may make the site look a bit more professional?
Do they hinder from the message of the blog?
And as I'm likely to make about a £1 from their presence, and I end up looking all commercial and grasping in exchange for no real financial gain( they have been there for a morning and Google tells me so far they have generated absolutely no income) - should I jack them in?
On the other hand, I do work in the media, directly in advertising for many years - so I'd be a tad hypocritical to be anti ads...
I would value feedback
2. When I write a post I almost always tweet it - it drives traffic.
However, I have now been pulled up on this by fellow blogger Neil Monnery who thinks I have gone just a little OTT on this.
Again - is he right? Let me know.
Ideally on Twitter ( @richardmorrisuk) or in the comments below...
Cheers all, I'm off to hide my light under a bushel
