I’ve made some changes to the site recently… my goal is to make the site look cleaner, and make the image viewing experience a little nicer.
- I have pulled Google AdSense in-line and sidebar ads off of the site. They added no value to visitors, and generated about $22 in income over 1 1/2 years.
- I am going to try the Amazon Associate program, which is as obtrusive as you want it to be. I’ve started putting some appropriate product links to items I’ve used, or have a personal interest in. I already had to remove the “product preview” script which appears when you hover over a link, because it was annoyingly slow. I may add a sidebar with recommended products in the near future. I’m not looking to get rich here, just maybe earn enough to cover my hosting fees.
- Finally, I have added the amazing Lightbox plugin for WordPress to the site. It’s a little extra work to create the thumbnails, but the end result is a much better experience for the viewer. I will be putting up larger images, and I will also be posting some gallery pages from my collection.
If you happen to drop in here, please leave me a quick note and let me know what you think of the site and the images (good or bad, I still like to see feedback). Thanks for reading!
