Blog Changes

 

 

You may have noticed the blog changes that have taken place over the past couple of days.  And if you haven’t, let’s take a look at those blog changes.

1) Home page slider

a) Previously every post has been featured in the home page slider.  Now, only featured posts will appear in the slider.

What does that mean to you?

If you were used to clicking through the slider to see recent posts, now you’re going to have to do some work.

Work as in, having to use your mouse or finger to scroll down the page.

It’s just my way of helping you get a little more exercise in your day. Your heart will thank me later.

b) Four posts

Only four featured posts will be in the slider.

Why did you choose four? Why not five? Or the perfect number, 7?

Right now I’m experimenting with four.  Who knows maybe later I’ll up the number to 7 or even go back to the 10 posts I originally had.  Crazy, I know!

Which brings the issue of whether or not I should keep the slider or ditch it?

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

2) Ads

There are a couple of additional ads on the blog.  There’s a new ad box on the right side of the blog under the Popular Posts box and an ad box at the end of every post.

No, I haven’t affiliated with the credit card companies, I’ve just added Google Adsense to the blog.

I have no control of the type of ads that are placed by Google. It might be a credit card link, an ad for airfare, or a hotel ad. One thing for certain, the ads placed by Google will be travel related.

3) More stuff 

I’m putting up the finishing touches on about 30 different blog posts which will appear on the blog over the next two months.

Posts will include more content related posts such as travel tips, trip reports, destination reviews, and hotel reviews.

Just wanted to let you know of the blog changes so you’re not freaked out by the ads or miss any posts because your finger didn’t do the walking.
