And what good times are we celebrating with this very inedible scented wax sheet cake? Just that my blog no longer looks and behaves like a sack of ad-laden crap. Break out the plastic forks before Marjorie nabs the last corner piece! Or not, because, you know, wax.
It recently came to my attention that my blog – particularly the mobile aspect thereof – was looking, to put it delicately, like a bag of hot buttered ass. I rarely check on the functionality of Finger Candy’s mobile side, naively assuming that everything is hunky dory. And you know what happens when you assume – your blog looks like utter shite. Ads EVERYWHERE – sometimes two or three peppered throughout one post – for creepy pop-up things like how to melt your belly fat using this one! easy! trick! and more distressingly, for items like holographic, enamel-plated gun scopes. I’m not down with fraudy, click bait ads, and I’m not down AT ALL with WordPress inserting multiple advertisements for gun paraphernalia into my blog posts. That one actually made me quite ragey, and spurred me into action. As in I ponied up for a premium-er plan, one that will shelve the irksome ads and other visual obstacles, particularly on the mobile side of things.
So going forward, you hopefully won’t be driven off by a top-down drop menu, a minimum of two mid-body ads, and two back-to-back footnotes per post. And I apologize for the prior state of Finger Candy – it was well nigh unreadable, and if you found yourself just rage-closing mid-way through a post, I understand. It looked and behaved like every blog I’ve ever abandoned because the navigation became a burden. So consider the burden lifted, and please return for more meandering non-sequiturs about nail polish, pop culture, Disney, cats, smelly things, smelly cats and more. I’ve missed you, and please won’t you be my neighbour? We have cake! It’s beyond inedible*, but still, cake. 😉
*an SMT creation from my customs order last year, it smells like Willow’s Cuppy Cake, Marshmallow Noel and Vanilla Bean Noel, and it is nuh-ummy.
