The Drunken Severed Head is going to be FOUR years old in less than a month, and in that time the blog hasn't been "monetized," as Blogger describes adding ads to one's blog. But I made a sort of exception last October and put up a small ad for itsagiftbasket.com, after they contacted me and offered to swap text and links. So I put up this, a link to a site where gift baskets for Halloween could be found--
and they put up a link to TDSH. Not on the page where the link they provided took you to-- nooooo. Instead, you had to do a lot of scrolling and click twice to see my text and link:
Don't see it? Well, you have to go down further and look closely. Here, I've circled it:
I'm STILL laughing that they chose to put a "Drunken Severed Head" link on a kiddie costume page!
Well, I may have the last laugh, as they're still running my link (hard as it is to find from their main Halloween page), but I stopped using theirs a few weeks ago. I DO like to keep the spirit of Halloween all year 'round, but who wants ads for the spooky day's merchandise 24/7/365! Seeing Halloween knick-knacks in stores in July already makes me wanna scream!
Which reminds me-- TDSH makes Paul at The Cobwebbed Room want to SCREAM! (Whatta shame. He's got one of my fav-o-rite blogs!)
Even so, he recently complimented me and gave me this nice image of a woman about to eat a really big, jumbo-size hot dog:
Nice. A "You make me scream" award. Sweet!
More on who makes me wanna scream and holla, votes in contests, and recommended sites, coming tomorrow.
