So the votes are in. 3 votes for "Powered by Indifference, Focused by Caffeine." No votes for anything else. Instead of giving $15 to Japan, I decided to go maverick:
I've also managed to work up most of the images for my banner ads:
Even cheating as I did with my tag cloud, these were hard as hell to throw together.The smaller ones were actually easier, as the space-scarce, scattered arrangement was easier to do than the ordered version the larger ones allowed. After the title and the tag cloud, I wasn't sure what else to put up. I was thinking "a blog about the internet on the internet," but even without the second half being redundant, but with the url even the "it's a blog" part is redundant as well. I could go for ironic, but that would be stupid.
I could use that extra space for a M-F breakdown (M: Whatever, T: Playing Favorites, W: Whatever, Th: Timewalking Archive Trap, F: It's the Magic), which might work if I start putting up my Prisoner/other reviews on Thursdays, start using the TATs as a general-purpose filler, Mondays could be dedicated Linkstorms/snarks/video, and have Wednesdays as 1000 Word pieces, photoshoppery, or whatever else comes up.
I could also use the Paper DS bit. That seems to be a popular thing.
[EDIT]Never mind; that's apparently been done before.
I've also whittled down my list of which webcomics might be good for advertising on:
peterdavid.net - Not a webcomic, but the guy writes X-Factor.
Chris' Invincible Superblog - Still not a webcomic and there's no reason that I'd want someone to read The ISB, then come directly to my site. It's like doing a rock festival and then finding out your garage band will be on stage right after K.I.S.S.. None the less, pretty cool.
