German comic con Dortmund and other news

[2nd post today]

Some news to report:

I will be attending the german comic con in Dortmund next week (december 10th). I am really looking forward to it! Never been to one, and comic cons in germany are still a pretty “new” thing. I hope to see some well-made cosplays. Especially from masked heroines like Batgirl, Batwoman, Catwoman, Spider-girl, Spider-gwen and so on. I will take my little amateur camera with me and take some pictures and videos.

I guess you all will love to hear that I will disable all Infolink ADs in this month. Even with the solid, stable visitor count the revenue is getting too low lately. And the site will look better without the ADs.

And now to the Amazon-links/banners. I know how many visitors visit my two blogs and I know that around 50% are from the USA, Great Britain and Germany.

But nearly no one uses the amazon-links on this site! Wanna know how much the US and german amazon links made last month?

0,0 / Nothing / Nada / überhaupt gar nichts

(UK links around 1-2 Pounds)

Well, that is really…. annoying. I know that many people shop at amazon. So, if you like this blog and visit it every once in a while…why don’t use these links if you wanna shop at amazon in the USA, UK or germany? If you use the link from the banner as a bookmark, you would only need to invest some seconds once and help me out at the same time.

Is it worth it?

[2nd post for today] Hey folks, I am wondering if this blog is worth the time and effort I put into it… With my job I earn only little money and so I wanna get some extra cash out of my two blogs. And I am talking about around 100$ (for both blogs together) per month. That is not so much…

I kicked out the AD-links and established the infolinks. Right now I trying the different formats they offer. I don’t wanna have too much advertising on the page so I don’t use every format they are offering. The banner ads from different companies didn’t work, the income was ridiculous. Infolinks has improved over the last days, but still I’m not satisfied at all.

Some guys click on the amazon links on the right side. But according to the stats not one bought anything. That is sad. I mean I know that nearly everybody buys something from them from time to time. It costs you only some seconds to click on the link here and I get some money out of it. But it seems to be a big problem for many to help someone.

Right now I make 95% of the money from the youtube-channel. And I guess 90% of that money would come in without my blogs….

Of course I love the feedback (comments) to the videos. And sometime some folks even write an email with recommendations. That is cool and helps me to find new material and motivates me to go on with the blogs. But when I see how many views there are and how less feedback it returns… that can be frustrating too.

Right now I don’t know how this will develop, but I would like a little more support (comments, mails, use the amazon-links).

Now 80% free of interrupting AD-links!

Well, with a lot of work I edited 80% of the posts. I deleted every single AD-link, embedded the youtube and dailymotion videos directly, corrected links, improved galleries and so on. The last 20% will follow the next days.

I hope you like the result and prefer it to the old “AD-link before content” model. AD-banner will follow the next days. If you have any comments, please let me know and use the comment function in this post (below).
