RSS readers, please click through! I have questions for you.
First order of business: gorgeous new (well, altered) template. Vicki at Swank Web Style is my girl. Everything that is good about my website is because of Vicki. (Well, the content is me. But it’s questionable whether that is any good.)
Second: these damn feeds. I am considering switching to full feeds. I still think they are a terrible idea if you care about copyright, but if I can find a way to do full feeds minus images I am willing to consider it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thoughts? Opinions? Are you more or less likely to read my posts if I have full feeds? Do you click through regardless? I want to know! Lay it on me.
Is anyone else having a problem on post pages with the subscribe info being way down at the bottom of the page? Has anyone used the subscribe thingy? Does it work? (I am automatically subscribed to every entry, so I wouldn’t know.)
Is it annoying or good to have the sidebars on the post pages? (They’re staying, but I want to know anyway.)
I am about $7 away from a check from google adsense. If I put the ads back up, will you click on them so I can get the check and do away with them for good? I have BlogHer ads now and I am just waiting for my account to be matched with an advertiser. And then the money should flow in. (I hope you will all join me in picturing a slow but steady leak of pennies dripping in.) BlogHer ads do not require clicks but go by page impressions.
If I put the Amazon widgets back up (assuming they don’t slow down the page load too much) will you guys buy through them?
Would it be TOTALLY TACKY of me to put up a Paypal tip jar? I am only vaguely considering it, and just until I can get some sewing done for my etsy store, so it is OK to tell me not to do this. It’s just that we are so broke I am worried about where groceries are going to come from this week.
OK, I think that’s enough to lay on you for one day. You deserve a reward for reading! Here is a beautiful picture of some dog poop Sam and I saw on the way to vote yesterday.
Real post coming soon, I promise.
