I apologise for this being a couple of hours late, I’ve just got in from playing in my first competitive football match in months. I played in goal and only let in two goals, just in case you was wondering. 🙂
I have always encouraged people to comment on this blog. In order to entice you further I took the plunge over 2 years ago and turned this blog into a do-follow one. This meant you were rewarded with a back-link for leaving a comment.
Sadly this brings out the spammers in force. I have been forced to do something that I really did not want to do. I have put a requirement on the amount of comments you must drop in order for your links to be do-follow.
From now on you must leave two comments and then from there your links will become do-follow. This means if you are a spammer and only leave one comment (as most of them do) then it will be classed as no-follow until I find it and delete it.
To make it easier for you the total amount of comments you have left will appear next to your name when you leave a comment. You know, just in case you had trouble counting up to two. 😛
Listening To The Feedback
On Wednesday I published a post asking the question How Can I Improve This Blog? I was met with some very good (and some rather horrible) replies, both via the comments section and by the contact form.
One that stuck out was from a person called Alex Whalley. He suggested that I sort out the Google Adsense ads because sometimes the units were showing flashing images that were not only horrible to look at but were slowing down the blog.
I thought this was a good idea and after doing the change I have noticed a slight increase in loading time on not just this blog but my personal blog as well. I will be looking to do this with the Adbrite ads in the next couple of days or so.
