Bits: Fox Flash, The News, Ad Networks

Can’t write enough about all of these subjects, so I’ll just lump them into one post. Ok, go!

Fox Flash

I am planning to create a fan site for a particular Fox show (you can probably guess what it is, but I will neither confirm nor deny any guesses and those that know won’t, either ;)). So, I submitted for approval to Fox Flash, which is Fox’s publicity site. Basically, it gives media people (including fan sites) access to pictures for them to use and so on and so forth. I actually submitted twice. Once a week or more ago that I didn’t hear back on (or didn’t get the e-mail) and then a few days ago… and I was rejected. :(

Oh well. I’m still going to proceed with my site… albeit a little differently. I’ll be posting here to see if anyone would like to be on the staff of the site, in time. So, keep an eye out for that.

The News

It seems I was a tad premature in announcing the news. Not that it’s not a done deal – it is. But, they (there is a hint – this isn’t something completely in my control or even something I have final discretion on) want to discuss the best ways to announce it so I’m holding off for now. But, I’ll post it as soon as it is prudent.

Ad Networks

I’ve just finished (well, a few days ago) redoing all of my ad network ads on all of my sites in an attempt to maximize revenue with the few ads that I do serve. I hope it does something. I am now serving ads for Tribal Fusion, BURST! Media, FastClick, Casale Media, Buds Media, ValueClick, Mamma Media Solutions, RightMedia and Google AdSense.

Edit: Well, maybe I could have wrote enough about them individually, eh?

" site for a particular Fox show..."

My guess is House. Or it could be The Simpsons, but I'll go with the former.
