Is TonbridgeBlog at the top of a very slippery slope?!..
Yes some bright sparks have already picked up that TonbridgeBlog is carrying advertising for the first time ever! I do feel like a bit of a fraud actually having been quite evangelical about not carrying the beastly interferring things, which constantly pop out at you and flicker at you, making you lose....concentration, but hey ho! It's just an experiment so expect to see a few different formats in the next few days and weeks from banners and skyscrapers to buttons and pop outs; half banners, squares, small rectangular shaped ones, colourful ones and text only ones. They may all be there. Why though after all this time of resisting the urge?? Well partly out of sheer curiousity to see how it all works, afterall TonbridgeBlog did come from an advertising background, as some of you may know, a tiny bit to see if I can generate a bit of revenue from it (although I'm doubtful on that one) and partly because Google do everything for you, so I don't have to be bothered with any admin or chasing up of ad copy etc. The technology is there so why not use it? Anyway like I said, only an experiment at the moment. Good idea or is TonbridgeBlog at the top of a very slippery slope??..
