new around hereSunday, March 01, 2015
Over the last few days I've taken the time to update a lot of pages on the blog. Nearly all the pages along the top navigation bar have had a facelift. Since it's apparently not all that often that I get around to doing a complete overhaul on them I thought a little recap of what to look for would be helpful.
▴ About Me : New photos + updated "about me". My favorite part is the main photo, a scan of a handful of photobooth pictures.
▴ FAQ : New questions added, including the most popular questions I get about abandoned buildings.
▴ Equipment : The only one that didn't get an update. Guess I'm waiting to just rework the whole post. I will add right here though that main thing different is my love for this lens. I've owned it for just under a year now and it's seriously the coolest. Not really sure how I went for so long without it.
▴ Favorite Posts : New posts added to the list!
▴ Contact Me : There's a new cute picture of Klaus? Haha, not really much to be updated on that front.
▴ Shop : Still the same link as before but with some new photos I'm really excited about.
▴ Blog Buttons : A brand new section with buttons so you can link to The Dainty Squid if you so please. If you need another size just shoot me over an email.
/// Even Bigger
▴ I added a handful of new tags to the blog, and deleted some that weren't being used. New tags include bikes, cemeteries, Cleveland, and travel. These are all subjects that get a lot of attention here on The Dainty Squid but for some reason were lacking a tag. This should make browsing a lot easier. Actually, if you have any other suggestions for tags, things I blog about often, then let me know!
/// Best of all
I updated the advertising page big time. Here's a quick overview of the new things happening there...
▴ The XL and large ad space options both now include inclusion in at least one Friday Favorites post. It's something I've been going back and forth about for a while now. A lot of blogs include some sort of sponsored feature with the purchase of ad space but that just doesn't really fit The Dainty Squid's content. I still really wanted a way to highlight my sponsors though. Inclusion in a Friday Favorites post is perfect and I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner! I understand that it may sound like the integrity of my Friday Favorite posts will be compromised but the way I see it is since I have to approve all sponsors before ads go live anyway. Knowing that I'll be featuring them in my Friday Favorites just ensures that those advertising are a good fit for my audience. Friday Favorites always have been, and always will be products and links I'm super pumped about.
▴ Small ad space now runs for 35 days instead of 30 like other ads. That's less than a dollar per day!
▴ The three month advertising discount? WAY BIGGER!
▴ I've opened up the option for other ways to partner! Something else in mind other than ad space? Interested in having your products featured on my instagram? Thinking a sponsored post best fits your need? I'm interested in discussing whatever you may be thinking. Just shoot me an email!
