things I like part 10
bird poops on plum branch
  1. enjoysthin.gs: It's a beautiful site, with a simple and fun focus on enjoying things.  I'm here.  It would be more fun if I had friends over there.
  2. Sweet delicious black coffee.
  3. Sweet delicious red wine.
  4. Helping people set up blogs (not sure why I enjoy this)
  5. Enjoymentland (my new barely started blog for talking about my various projects and things I'm learning about)

Nice to have a new verb to apply to the internet, but an odd decision to slip indistinguishable-until-rolled-over "this is an ad" photos into my and everyone else's favourite pictures.

I'm not sure what you're referring to...

Sorry, that's Enjoysthings. One box image on every page of things turns out to say "This is an ad" when hovered over; before you do that, it looks like just another picture or site that the page's owner enjoyed.

I don't mind ad-supported sites, but making the ads identical to content that your users are genuinely enthusiastic about is an oddly misleading design choice.

Weird, I haven't run into that at all. Maybe it's only when you're not logged in?

But yeah, I agree that generally camouflaging ads is a stupid trick.

Yeah, it is very similar. I do like how it automatically imports favorites from Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo, FriendFeed, etc though. I use Tumblr too... I use pretty much every site on the Internet a little bit. But always ready to jump to a newer better ship. Probably a bad instinct overall. :)
