Down to the Tacks

I don't usually do this sort of thing, but today is the first day of Spring - therefore yielding to strange changes in behavior and other things, right? So bear with me, I just have one teeny tiny question to ask of you today and then you can go about whatever it was you were doing, alright? Alright.

See those links at the end of each post?

Yes, those with the pictures. The ones that change post to post, and if you happen to hit "refresh," as I tend to do from time to time just to see what pops up (because I have nothing better to do, or...I am putting off doing something that I should despite the renewed energy and joie de vivre that the first day of Spring is supposed to bring).

Well, what do you think of those links?

Are they distracting?

Do they bug you?

Do you like them there?

Are you inclined to check out what they have to offer or would you rather you woke up in the morning only to find that they magically disappeared overnight by the hands of the fairy blogmother?

*Poof! Look who visited and removed the links today? Thank you all for the help - fact is the links were bothering me, I thought they were messing up the place (I like to keep the mess over there, on the side).

I feel lighter, bouncier, like I had a new hair cut or something...which reminds me, I need to tweeze my eyebrows!

They don't bother me either way. I'm very good at ignoring anything either than a post itself.

Happy Spring!!!

Eh! They are okay. I have not clicked on them, but I do sometimes look cuz I see one of my cute kids in them.
The question is do they bug you?

I'm with Linda. I check your blog daily so I've always already read any post that is highlighted there. But, do they bother you? Go with your instincts, cousin.

You are way ahead of me in blog management - I didn't even know that it was an option.
When I saw it for the first time - on another blog - I assumed that it was for advertising purposes to increase the page views per visitor. As that isn't really relevant to me I didn't explore it further. I think that there might be a slightly slower loading time as a result - does that bother you?

I don't click thru either since I've read all your posts, but newcomers to the blog might find them useful. It's really up to your preference. Go with what you like, and I'll like it. :)

I dont click through, but as mine were annoying the crap out of me I got rid of them and love the streamlined look. My blog is still too busy but I don't have those ads any more...just BlogHer ads, but those are fine with me.

BTW, better late than never....HAPPY SPRING! I am just so happy to FINALLY be able to say that. It seems like winter was 100 years long this year.

Eyebrows. Damnit, I knew I forgot some grooming this morning!
