Last Monday was about reading the blog with no ads. The response has been great and I have received a lot of emails on the subject. We learned how great it would be to be able to read without advertising and tracking in the future. The new freedom in a time when every modern car records movement data. One reader wrote of a declaration of independence, playing on the "State of Independence”Campaign from Saab on.
I had completely forgotten about it, a nice comparison. In general, I was very excited about the reactions. Because since this project has been online, there have been people who are bothered by the financing through advertising. The criticism has haunted me for 10 years. She is persistent and she keeps coming up. Actually, this group in particular should have just waited for a fair deal that would make the blog ad-free. The time to strike is now! Or not?
The Post It was read very well, but that was it. Fortunately, less than a dozen subscribers, exactly 11, were missing on Monday. And it seemed like everyone was waiting for someone to do something and the blog ads would go away.
Is it all psychology?
Maybe it was my fault, too. Numbers are psychology. 50 missing subscribers could be a mobilizing challenge. 11 are just an annoying little thing that will somehow have taken care of itself. A very tough little thing, as you have to find out. It was trickling this week, and only 6 newcomers actually came to the end.
So there are still 5 missing Subscribers, and in the new week, too, pop-ups and advertisements will accompany reading. So let's see what happens. If the magic line is crossed in the next few days, there will be an update and the farewell to all advertising.
Farewell, that is the motto of the coming week. Not only Google advertising is up for grabs, a farewell to other things is approaching as well. Life is movement, the blog is part of it. He changes, new things take their course, others leave. It always remains interesting!
