The story of a blog, from birth to...?

Over the top blog advertising strategy

I clicked on just now and heard a highly annoying buzzing sound; I figured there was a problem with the code somewhere. But no joke - there really was a bug: an ad with a buzzing mosquito, which you were supposed to slap (i.e., click on the ad) in order to win a free laptop (yeah, right - once you've given away all your family secrets and financial information). Sure enough, there was no way to make the thing shut up without actually clicking on the ad (or migrating away from the page).

Sigh. No one ever clicks on my ads...
