The ease of use of our new archive system has actually lead to me reading them myself during work the past two days when all I meant to do was look for something specific. I was struck by two things:
- This website has essentially tricked me into keeping a journal since 2002.
- The frequency, especially during 2005 and early 2006, that I complained about Woodstock’s affect on my commute.
I no longer drive I-575 daily, living south of Woodstock in Kennesaw as I do now, so I don’t have to worry about it anymore. My new daily nemesis is Marietta. I have so much hate for Marietta at this point and its ability to stall I-75.
Speaking of the archive pages, I’m probably going to be running a test soon where we put Google ads on 1 out of every 5 Narchive pages or something. We’ve never had ads before, and I don’t really want them on main content pages ever, but I’m going to see how well this works out. It depends on what Peter and Travis think and if I can integrate them into the design of the site. Regardless it’s not like we’ll suddenly be turning a profit or anything; it’ll just make us lose very, very, very slightly less money doing this.
