So Alanis Morissette wrote the song Ironic years ago, which ironically didn’t mention things that were ironic, but rather just sucked. For instance, a traffic jam, when you’re already late, isn’t ironic, it just sucks. Getting stuck in a traffic jam while you’re on your way to talk about how your city has excellent traffic patterns, is ironic.
In a similar twist of fate, Tonya Taylor, who sells an Online Business Building Starter Kit, recently wrote a blog post about “10 Things She Hates About Your Website” which has a pop-up ad show before you can view any of the content on her site. You can read it here, http://savvybizbuilder.com/2010/07/10-things-i-hate-about-visiting-your-website.html, I don’t want to actually link to it as I don’t think she deserves the “Link Juice,” so you can copy and paste it if you truly have the urge.
Don’t worry though, #4 clearly states that she hates “Poor Placement of Advertisements,” which would easily qualify.
Now that my friends, well that is ironic. Though I’m not sure how Alanis could have incorporated that in to her songs. “Showing a pop-up ad, on a website discussing ten things you hate about websites”, just doesn’t seem like it would go well in a song…but hey, I’m not song writer.
