Outa Your Face Advertising
Call this a Rant. Call me crazy if you want. Here's what I'm going to do:
OUTA YOUR FACE ADVERTISING
There's money in advertising, I know. I want some, too. It helps pay bills. That'd be nice.
People come here to look at pictures and some of them read. That's why I put stuff here.
If they think anything like I do, they don't want to see IN YOUR FACE ADVERTISING, like:
Pop-ups saying "YOU WON !" "THIS IS NO JOKE" "YOU ARE THE 100,000th VISITOR !"
Or, Meet Russian, Chinese, Swiss Chocolate, French Maid, Beautiful, Single, Girls, NOW !
College Degrees Online, Cheap Flights, Boat Rides, Hotels, Property, Massages, anywhere !
My plan is to have absolutely no advertising on this page. I'll be moving what little I have here already off the page to my Advertising Department. That's going to take people who really can't wait to go shopping somewhere else. I will only have 1st class advertising, like products I would recommend or use myself. I'll even do product reviews but, it will be on a different site, not here where it distracts people who came to read and look at pictures, from reading and looking at pictures.
Please bear with me. This will take me awhile. There's no need to keep clicking on my Advertising Department to see the Outa Your Face Advertising because there's nothing there, yet. I have to get some gurus to help me organize it first. I'll let you know when it's ready.
The way I figure, even if I don't make anything from Outa Your Face Advertising, it'll only be about twice what I'm not making already. Does that make any cents (Spelchek, Shh !) to you?

Good idea Mike. I'll be anxious to see what you do come up with....maybe you'll find that silver lining, or should I say gold lining.
I had someone ask me the other day to write an article that they would pay me for. All I had to do was talk about taking a flight to New York City and include their link. Now, um, I haven't been to NYC in a zillion years. How would that be relevant to my readers????
That's simple and quick. There's a heck of a lot of travel writers who'd jump on that.
They just jump online, research and throw together a blog post without ever getting out of their pajamas. They're imaginative travel writers!
