The "It's Not Just About Comic Books and Dead Celebrities" Blog!
Heh, heh! Yeah, it would be nice if we could be paid for this. Actually, here on Blogger you can monetize your blog, but I refuse to have my photos subjected to click bait ads. (((sigh))) It's a drag being high-minded!
Kinda figured I'd be hearing from you after I posted a Calvin and Hobbes strip, Roy!I used to have Amazon and Google AdSense ads, but finally took them down.
How funny and true. I wonder if Dr. Phil read this strip?
A lot of political pundits seem to have...
What? We get paid? Nope. No money. Guess we'll go back to just acting like a 6 year old.
After several years, I finally got $100 from the ads on my blog. Then I took them down.Love,Janie
Really? Me, too! $100 after several years. Then I took them down!
I've never even considered having ads on my blog, mostly because I can't even stand it when a pop-up appears to ask me to subscribe for "more" when I'm trying to read what I went there to read. I love Calvin and Hobbes, because there are so many universal truths to be had there. We have so many of the collections, and they never get old. And can you imagine getting paid to be an ass on a regular basis? Why am I providing this for free?
My ads were somewhat unobtrusive, just sidebar ads. They didn't interfere with anyone's reading of my posts. Pop-up ads annoy the hell out of me. So do "playlists" that play automatically when you land on someone's blog.
Thank goodness the trend of having "blog music" has died down. I despise sites that have commercials start to play, and I can't find where the heck on the page the noise is coming from. I hope they look at their analytics and see how many people simply close the tab, rather than try to keep reading through the site. I think I get more and more intolerant as time goes on. I don't know that it has anything to do with age, but moreso that I just don't have the time to waste. I won't go so far as to say that my time is that important (that always sounds so obnoxious) but that I just don't want to waste it if I don't have to.
When I visit the local library to use their computers, I always turn off the sound before I start browsing the internet. I hate those automatic, where-the-hell-are-they-coming-from ads!
Hey now, it's Calvin and Hobbs. No need to apologize. Good catching up with you again! :)
If I had a son, I'd like one similar to Calvin... although I think he'd occasionally be exasperating!
I am a big fan of Calvin and Hobbes. The comic strip shown here, like many of the C & H comics, makes me think of a number of things.
I agree. That strip often sends my mind spinning in multiple directions.
