A quick programming note and our current policy on advertising

Almost a year ago I wrote a post mentioning something about slabbed.org coming soon and soon never came.  Nowdy and I self fund this site and that model has been a key part of the reason such a diverse group of people engage us. We’re non-partisan and equal opportunity though we have a consistent message in these pages about these days and times here in Soggy Bottom.

Change is certain and the one thing we can all count on in life, so it was in the cards that we were going to move to our own host and begin taking advertising. And then I pulled up a post this morning and GASP there it was, an ad by Google on Slabbed despite the fact that WordPress bloggers are prohibited from advertising on their blogs. Any Ad you see on Slabbed is WordPress paying the bills to host and provide the platform, not us.

Our days on WordPress are numbered IMHO.

Meantime if I had to write a post about this stupid criminal story from yesterday’s Sun Herald the piece would be titled Dum, dum dum dum….

With some luck I’ll have that comprehensive post on Byron Lee ties to the landfill out for later today.

Catching up with some housekeeping: I finally added to the blogroll….

I added 5 new links to our blogroll for the consideration of our readers:

The Hayride:  A GOP blog run by the former editor of Purple and Gold magazine Scott McKay, who I remember from sportstalk on WWL radio from back in the day.

The Jefferson Report: Baton Rouge businessman Lane Grigsby digs deep in his own pockets to fund several public interest websites including TJR, which is devoted to reporting on the double dealing in Jefferson Parish.

The NOLA Defender: What can I say folks except, they liked our coverage of the ongoing exploits Magnum JD.  😉

Pistolette: Andrea is a rising star in the NOLA area blogosphere and a damn good blogger. Her post on the HBO series Treme was refreshing and real, which is no doubt why it was so well received.

Former Slabbed author Bellesouth has hung her own shingle as she hits the warpath shining the spotlight on certain hidden agenda blogging that resulted from the Scruggs scandal.

Enjoy!

I am on assignment and (completely hooked up with the day job).  I hope to roll out some new material over the weekend. As always we thank you for your support.

Anita Lee covers the coverers and writes a very nice piece on Slabbed's coverage of the Who Dat Judge and Nunny.

While the compliments we get from the Slabbed Nation sustain us it is nice to see our work recognized by professional journalists, especially those of the caliber of Anita Lee at the Sun Herald.

Thanks Anita!

A quick programming note

I know I promised earlier to publish a post today for the freaks at the West Jefferson Medical Center. I’ve been given some new information on a related matter that requires a bit of research thus that post will appear tomorrow along with a revisitation of Operation Wrinkled Robe. As always we thank the Slabbed Nation for their support.
