In addition to today’s bad news of Greg Mattison going to Ohio State and other potential bad things, I have something to add:
The attractive women feature on TTB appears to be going the way of the dodo, as Google has started to hit me with a bunch of violations of their AdSense policy. This happened at MGoBlog to get rid of the “sexybits,” as they like to call them, and Google must have finally got around to checking out a smaller site like mine. Over the span of a few days, Google notified me of 19 violations, and they are creeping ever closer to my current timeline. (The most recent post they flagged was from December 28, 2018).
Considering that AdSense is typically over 70% of my monthly income from the blog, I literally can’t afford to push the limits of their tolerance.
I know some people will be disappointed by this development, but at the same time, I have had some comments indicating that certain people avoid my site because of the “sexybits.” Those people will be welcome to come back without fear of their boss or wife walking past.
At this point I’m not sure what, if anything, will fill the 10:00 p.m. slot on the site. I had been using it for interesting links and breaking news, but without the eye candy, I’m not sure if that will still be worth the effort. I generally don’t have the time to write two posts per day, so this may just limit my posts to 6:30 a.m. and then any worthwhile breaking news throughout the day.
What would you do if you were me? Is there anything you would like to see at 10:00 p.m. (or as an easy second post each day) to fill the void? Would you still read and discuss the links I have been providing at that time, or would the absence of the eye candy send you elsewhere?
