Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Regular visitors will have noticed the re-appearance of ads on the site. There is one ad per page, up at the top.
The site has been ad-free for a number of months now, but sites cost money to run, and as traffic continues to grow, so do costs. So ads are back, at least for a trial period, but the site remains, of course, completely free of commercial interference in the decisions taken as to what is posted. If that makes sense. Frankly, it probably doesn’t, so just read the legal bumpf found at the bottom of the sidebar if you’re especially worried. Which, frankly, you’re not.
Since I haven’t done a ‘This Blogging Month’ type post for a while, I might as well give you a quick update on site performance: The site’s millionth hit this year was reached last month, and the site is continuing to attract over 4,000 hits per day, or over 120,000 per month. Most visitors to the site are from the States (nearly a third, in fact).
So there’s a very brief update for you, and I hope you don’t find the advertising too intrusive.
