I’ve been trying to squeeze the most out of the latest version of WordPress while simultaneously moving, converting, converging and editing down old content. I’ve taken down the old homepage of
agrosnowman.com and replaced it with a pointer to the blog; anything of interest there now shows up as a page on the right-hand nav bar here.
In an attempt to get more readership, and after that, more sponsorship, I also signed up as a Project Wonderful ad destination. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you’ll see three ad boxes that are up for bid; anyone who wants to sponsor the site can do so at the “market rate” determined by a continuous auction for those three spots. It’s one of the features I like in R. Stevens’ Diesel Sweeties comic web site, so I followed suit and put a similar footer here. Now all I need are sponsors: the going market rate to run a footer ad here is whatever epsilon charge about absolute zero is at PW — probably a dime a day (you could feed a starving child, or support a well-fed Devils fan).
Next steps: bringing over the entire hockey book list as a page, editing the theme a bit more to make it more red&black friendly, adding some custom graphics, and of course loading the last 60 or so entries that got lost in the shuffle.
