New Tag Board!

It has taken a while - much longer than I thought - but I have finally managed to get a TagBoard for this blog, and it doesn't have those annoying pop-up ads. You would think it would be a simple job, and for most people it probably is, but for me it seemed to take forever. Well, now it's done, and I am hoping you might leave me a message.

Before you say it, I do realise I will probably get mostly spam and/or obscenities, but I am going to give it a try. Please help to prove and support what I have found to be true: there are far more good people in the world, and certainly in the 'blogosphere', than there are spammers, flamers, hackers and trolls. Which is good, because I am not completely sure I know what all of those things are.

What's that? I could have paid and got an ad-free board? No way. Miss the chance to waste hours of time that I should have spent making money or being productive? "Never put off 'til tomorrow what you can put off today," I say. Besides, it would surely betray my Northern, penny-pinching, roots to be splurging cash on something I managed to rip-off create.

Want to add an Ad-free Tag Board to your own blog without spending money or wasting precious time? Please go ahead and email me. Or leave a message about it on my Tag Board!

Hello, Anonymous (1), thanks for stopping by. Yes, children are adorable, I agree. My kids used to beg me not to sing to them, though, lol! Might not pop over to see your site for a while, been celibate for 5 years, so not much point.
Hi, Anonymous (2), thanks for stopping by. Did you see Anonymous (1) on your way in? Not so much of a gambler, either, but thanks for the invite. I certainly make lots of gambling-related charms, I must remember to post about them sometime.

I believe "spam that pollutes the blogosphere" should be referred to as "SMOG"

Nice look! Well, if you worry about spammer, there's the option of deleting the spam posts. It's going to take time yes, but at least you get a clean tagboard. I have removed mine so people would go flock at the comments section. And it hasn't failed.

I have recently finally admitted. . . I HATE COMPUTERS!! go figure. .

Why, brewsmith? They are just trying to get to work. Oh, sorry, I thought you said COMMUTERS!
You could try rebuilding your relationship with your computer. I know I hav spent so many long hours tending to mine, often into the wee small hours, that it's part of the family now. And it has it's own 'college fund'.

I like your blog and your new tag line.

Where did you find it?


Clublint said...

Well done on getting the Tag board ad free and I agree entirely in your reasoning behind not buying a tag board.

Why pay for something you can get for free?

Looks like you got your fair share of spam in comments. I still kiss the little doodad I have on my page that stops spammers. I don't know what it is but I decided to love it anyway.


ps my verification word is fugktuul and I can't stop giggling.

This is my juvenile self signing off....

I'm a programmer, and a frequent blogger. =) So for me, having a "tag board" (I never knew that's what they were called) was never really an option. They're cool ways to drop a quick line... so I wrote one.

I don't know if you had to pay for or create this one, but you're more than welcome to try mine if you have PHP on your hosting site. No, I'm not trying to sell this... I mean, free.. as in "free beer". But if you're interested, leave me a quick note (on and I'll get back with you.
