The Sidebar

A few small changes to my sidebar,

A month or so ago I attempted to see what would happen if I put Google adsense on my blog to see if I could make any money off of it (is that dodgy?) – I probably swore at one time never to put advertising on here but they’re pretty unobtrusive. Anyway It’s probably not really worth it but they can just live there.

The other thing that I removed today was the hit counter/script from site meter – a very useful stats collector, unfortunately it’s recently decided not to work very well with massive differentiations between that and other stat counters, I was advised that my site would be quicker without it. So the hit counter left off at 7,684 or something similar (I could be a few hundred out). Now you (and I) can live a bit more ignorance.

By the way, a huge thank you to Paul and his housemates for donating a microwave!

    $2 something, and you don’t get any until it hits $100 😛 so probably I’ll end up getting something in maybe 2030.

    Well is there anything I can do to help along with the money making? Click on anything?

    Actually the reason why i asked is i was thinking about doing the same thing *blush* Yet.. i have a fear that they’ll try to steal all my money, or something.

    yeh that’s how it works if people click on the links. I think if you hit $100 US then you can set it so they’ll post a check to you.

    I see you fixed the side bar. At least where i’m posting from now it’s formatted properly. We’ll have to see whether it’s the same now at home or not. 😉

    Bec you need to make your sidebar float on a right alignment layer or something because it just keeps jumping off my screen

    I dont always run my window maximised becaues my screen is so wide I have to turn my head to see it… and so then I cant see it at all.

    Meh… its your sidebar… but its also my portal to the wonderful world of blogging… so I’d like to be able to see it :o)

    yeah um, it is an issue. I’m not sure what I can do, unless I change them all to % widths (which gets interesting) what you’ll find I think is that the most right hand sidebar will get squashed out and so drops lower than the more left sidebar. I’ll see what I can do when I have a bit more time – any suggestions anyone?
