Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 2/26/17

Posted February 26, 2017 by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction in Sunday Post / 28 Comments

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life):

I went to my blog this morning and was accosted by music and party horns from a Kohls ad in my sidebar! YIKES!! I’m sorry if any of you experienced this. I took the ad completely down until I get it sorted out. I hate ads that have sound that turns on when you go to a site. I’ve had a Litbreaker ad in my sidebar for years, and it’s always been relatively unintrusive. Typically, the ads are book-related and they don’t overtake my blog or anything. I don’t make much from it (around $5 a month), but I figured it helps pay for a giveaway, so why not? But if the ads are now going to have sound, this ad spot will not be back. Again, sorry if you were blasted when you came to my blog!

Other than that, it’s been another pretty low-key week around here. I’m heading to a going away party today for one of my best friends today who’s moving across the country, so it’s going to be a sad day. Plus, unfortunately, I’ve had to attend two memorial services within the last two weeks—obviously not fun. The deaths weren’t sudden, but it makes you think about how fragile life is.

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog last week:

    • I took it down as soon as I logged in this morning and I hadn’t heard it in the past, so hopefully it was just a fluke and no one else was blasted. I got a note back from my contact at Litbreaker that said it was a mistake and that ad shouldn’t have been in the lineup, so it shouldn’t happen again. (Those ads really bug me!)

    • Yeah, it’s frustrating because I definitely don’t want the ads on my site to be obtrusive or obnoxious. There’s nothing worse than going to a site and feeling accosted by ads!

      And I think you’re right about winter—this has been a particularly tough one for us. 🙁

  1. That’s actually kind of funny about the ad- party horns! Although I’m sure you weren’t amused. 🙂 Sorry to hear your friend is moving away- that’s a bummer. And sorry too about the memorials- that’s how my 2016 started. 🙁

    Loved the acronym post this week. And The Unlikelies looks fun!

    • My computer is usually on mute too—that’s one of the reasons I was worried because I was thinking that maybe the ad has had sound at some point in the past and I just didn’t notice it! I’m really not a fan of those. My Litbreaker rep assures me it was a fluke mistake and that the ad should not have been in the lineup, so hopefully it’s been fixed. I haven’t put the ad back up yet, but I will get to it soon…

  2. Yeah I leave my computer on mute all the time as well! I have to remember to turn it on when I WANT to watch a video or something! I forget about it sometimes! LOL! Sorry about the memorials as well. And having your friend move away! Sounds like a tough week!

    Your reads are totally new to me ones! Hope you enjoy them!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

  3. I listen to music too much to have my computer on mute, but I’ve noticed in the last few weeks every time I would go to read a news article, they had some ad/ad video pop-up going, and there’s sometimes not an option to turn it off. Who does that? Jerks.

    I hope the going-away party was a memorable and fun event. I can’t imagine any of my close friends moving across the country. While I don’t see any of them on a daily or weekly or even monthly basis anymore, that is still hard. I hope you get lots of Skype and Facetime!

  4. I didn’t even notice the ad so either I missed the days it was up or I had my volume so low that it didn’t bother me. That’s sad about two memorial services so close together. I’m sorry to hear that. Hope you enjoy the new reads and have a great week, Nicole!
