It’s a big weekend here on TamaraTattles.com. You may notice we are working through some different graphics ideas, back grounds, and templates etc., there is a lot happening behind the scenes. The switch to my new hosting site is scheduled for Monday. I’m trying to keep things clean and lean in hopes that I will eventually have more advertising. The last several months, despite my views going UP the ad rev from WordPress has fallen by more than 50%. My WP guy who normally assures me things are going to pick back up seems to have moved on. So, I finally have to get out of the shallow end of the pool and handle all my own ads I’m a bit over my head already. Way back in the day when I was on Blogger, I had control of my ads, and the thing that kept me on wordpress.com was the fact I didn’t have to deal with any of that. But a girl has to
eat drink. So we are stepping off to the unknown.
Before I move on Monday, I’d like to ask that you not do anything differently with regard to ads. I know y’all want to “help me” but I believe most ads will be based on just your views of my site not clicks. Don’t go all crazy with clicking things just to support me because it probably won’t make a difference and it might make things worse. If you see an ad targeted to you, click it. But honestly, hitting up my donate button for five or ten bucks will do way more for me. I know y’all want to help but just react to the ads the way you would anywhere else. If you just click on everything, I will probably lose my ads. SO LET’S ALL TRY TO ACT NORMAL. 🙂
I know I correspond with a lot of you guys via email. Please understand if I fail to respond to emails sent this week. I’m more than a little freaked out. I’m going to have to learn a brand new system. I’m not sure how much is going to be the same even though I am using WordPress as my editor… I think. I feel a bit like I am stepping into the void. The great thing about WordPress.com is that you can focus on your writing. Now I have the ad people I choose asking things like, ” what are the ad sizes you want us to build?” I dunno. So if you see ads that bug you or whatever. Be patient I am learning. I have eleventy billion people asking to put ads on my site every day. I am confident I picked the best one to start my journey with. I have a more banging down the door. We will go though this together.
Anyway, Ads are just a tiny part of it. I have to learn lots more new stuff. But that is the reason I am moving. So on Monday, expect weird shit.
Now, more importantly, I want to know what you guys are up to. It’s the weekend! I want to know what normal people are doing this weekend.
