Enough with the Frickin' Ads Already!

Okay, the ads, which are cool for making money, should not be the template or the wallpaper for your blog.

I am so sick of going to sites and I can't find the content because there are 800 ads on the page. Even worse, is when the page is covered with ads and then you also get the combined fun of the pop-up ad.

We all want to make a little cash on the side, but take a page out of Dooce's book. Put ads up, but make the site still aesthetically pleasing and combine it with some hilarious content. Dooce has mastered this art, most of the rest of the blogospere hasn't.

So, let's use the 70/30 rule - the maximum amount of space on your site that should be covered with ads is 30 percent. If you have more than this, then I plan to send a ping attack to your hosting server as well as a series of viruses that will implode your site and will email all of your friends and tell them what a huge dweeb you are - and yes, we just used the word dweeb, we are totally bringing it back. We can do stuff like that, we are the frickin' blog patrol!

I agree, although I wouldn't mind getting a little ad love to pay for my obsession!
