Good morning, faithful TTB readers! It’s been a while since I’ve posted much about news regarding the site, because everything since 2020 has been weird and we’ve all gone through some stuff.
However, the time has come to open up a little bit about TTB. As you all have figured out now, I’ve mostly been mirroring content between the WordPress site and the Blogger/Blogspot site. That’s because the Renovatio theme on WordPress went kaput in a few areas, including supporting comments. And I like the comments (it would be boring to post and not discuss with readers), so in order to get discussion, my solution has just been to post all/most content on both sites. It’s a little time consuming but mostly just consists of copying/pasting, so that’s not a big deal.
THE BIG DEAL
The big deal is declining ad revenue. It has been an issue for a few years and has finally come to a head. In short, I’m not making enough money on TTB to make it viable. For the first time in the blog’s history, I lost money on the endeavor in 2021 when I filed my taxes.
I literally paid to bring you (almost) daily content in 2021. The game reviews, the recruiting info, the countdown, etc. all cost me money.
Hit the jump for more.
