Benefit of adding Google AdSense Matched Content to your site or blog Google AdSense Matched Content has been available on my domain for quite some time but I was hesitant to start using it. My main reason was that recommended article links tend to be spammy and annoying. However, after quite a bit of deliberation I decided to give it a go and was quite surprised with results. The main outcome was more page views on my blog and as a flow on effect, more potential advertising revenue.
Adding an email subscribe feature to your Blog with Blogtrottr I've been thinking of adding an email subscribe feature to my Blog for a while now. Originally I thought that I'd build this functionality myself but after a lot of deliberation and research I decided that there really wasn't any need to reinvent the wheel and looked for an alternative. That's when I came across Blogtrottr.
Pinterest style columns example with CSS I've finally finished working on the Projects section of my blog and wanted to share the CSS and HTML I used to make it happen. I wanted to achieve the look that Pinterest uses for it's pins pages, where the pins flow down the page. I wanted to allow each pin to be of a different height and not to force other pins to align to it's top/bottom i.e. the gaps between pins should be constant and one pin could span the height of multiple other pins without interference of their layout.
Amazingly simple to implement code highlighter for your blog I was looking for an easy to implement code highlighter for my Blog and after searching around and trying out various different ones I settled on highlight.js. My requirements were simple, it had to work with the BBcode used in Flatpress and ideally to not require much code change.
RevenueHits for Blog Monetisation - skip it if you have any sense of credibility I recently missed my Google AdSense payment threshold by $0.02 and that got me thinking if I really have the right ad network for my Blog, so I started to do a bit of research on what other advertising networks I can replace AdSense with. The number one name that kept on coming up was RevenueHits. There was no approval process (first warning sign perhaps?), their website was very simplistic and straight forward and setting up your ads was quite easy. It was not until after I did some trial runs with it that I discovered the true extent of how discredited this advertising network was.
