I consider the pandemic that happened during the last few months a blessing, because it allowed me to take much needed time off from university (which I loathe and want to disappear from the face of the Earth) and post instead. In fact I’m kind of sad that all this isolation stuff is ending and I have to get out of the house more instead of focusing on my passions. I hoped it would last at least 5 years so I could regain my good old life back.
Lately I’ve been trying to focus on the technical side of things. The end goal is to make a living out of TAP, so I’ve applied to better ad providers these past months, and finally got approved by Monumetric. Expect the ad layout to change, I hope for the better. Try it out by turning your Adblock off for a while and remember to give feedback in the comments or mail. I strive to make the text as visible as possible, so there won’t be a big bottom bar that you have to close to see the rest of the page or a banner at the top that makes you scroll needlessly. I hope the ads won’t be too invasive. The host will be changed too during the next months, and I think I’ll use one located in the UK; mainly because most readers are from the US, Germany and Britain; France, Netherlands and Spain being not that far behind. Moreover, a theme change is still on the table in case the site will continue to be slow. All this takes time; changing the previous hosting and fixing the issues that resulted from it took more than a month, quite a scary process when you do something like this from the first time. Thank you for bearing it; Bluehost is trash.
I’ve also returned to a passion of mine which I had since before starting TAP: Bitcoin. Just at the right time I suppose, because the halving just happened. I won’t lose too much money this time… hopefully! HODL.
