I Need Another Favor From You.

I Need Another Favor From You.

I know, I’m asking a lot. But think of it as being a part of the solution! Yay solutions!

In the last post (Selling Out) I asked you beauties to tell me what ad was popping up for you in my fancy new sellout sponsored spot. You did not disappoint. Thank you.

But, like any true hero, you are useless if you are not needed. And I need you to be a hero again.

I need feedback. And you, dear internet, are particularly good at feedback.

So here’s the thing, and just remember that this is a no judging zone. I just integrated a wonderful little signup form in an effort to allow readers an easy way to sign up for RPS email updates. You may have noticed it. You may already be irritated with it. I’m sorry.

It’s a pop up.

But look, this isn’t the early 2000’s anymore and pop ups are significantly less scary than they used to be.

I need you to tell me your feelings about the pop up. Is it annoying? Did it work? Could you exit out of it easier than waving a bee away? Did you have the same exit issue from mobile that I did (I had to zoom in super closer to push the X)?

If it didn’t pop up for you, have no fear. You’ll be harassed soon enough. It’s supposed to appear after scrolling halfway through the page and I *think* only on one page per visit. If this isn’t the case for your experience I’d love to know what happened.

You may not be the hero I deserve, but you’re the hero I need.

Let me know if you hate it.


P.S. I didn’t have any heroic pictures around so here’s me and the nephews as pirates who carry power drills

    The pop-up was easy enough to close out enough on my desktop. And honestly I don’t mind it. There are a few websites that I have visited that have a similar thing and to be quite honest, I’m glad they had this. If they didn’t have something like that that popped up I never would have signed up for their mailing list. Also, pretty awesome picture.

      Oh, and I clicked through a few pages and it didn’t seem to pop up after I exited out. So only once per my visit.

        Yay! Thanks for the feedback, Tim

    Super simple to exit out of on my Android, definitely do not hate pop ups on websites, usually valuable info. =)

    • liz

      Yay! Thanks for checking it out, Kelsey!

    It didn’t pop up for me until I got to the comments section. But when it did it worked just fine

    This is a reasonable pop-up and it only came up once while I read the page. This is better than pop-ups that say “save 10% when you give us your email. Click ‘yes’ or ‘I don’t like to save money.’ 🙂 Great photo! Does Luke the pirate have a milk mustache?

    No pop up for me but I’m on my IPhone so that might explain the lack of a pop up

    Popped up and had no trouble exiting out.

    P.S.- Still getting ads for dresses and still very confused about it. Better than engagement rings I suppose.

      I mean, better than that whacko Trump Prophet ad that’s matriculated it’s way in.
