stlhopslogosmall.gifI know, I know, change can be a scary thing. But I promise to hopefully make it as stress free (for you) as possible. As you all know, I’m without a job, so I need to find some ways of generating some extra income.

Being as popular as STL Hops is, it seems silly not to try and generate some income off of it. So, here are a list of things you may see changing over the next couple of weeks.

  • Design Change – STL Hops has been using the exact same design for almost exactly two years now.  It’s time for a freshening up.  None of the content or resources will be changing, just the look and feel of the site.
  • Ads – I know that ads can be a bit of a downer or a bit of an eyesore at times.  But I can promise that while they’ll be conspicuous, (because what’s the good of an ad if it’s not conspicuous?) I don’t think they’re going to distract from the overall feel from the site.
  • More Merchandise – A few people have been asking for different colored t-shirts or women’s t-shirts, so those will soon be offered in the STL Hops Shop.  I may also start offering STL Hops pint glasses as well, if I can figure out a way to safely and cheaply ship them.
  • More Content – With any luck STL Hops would start generating enough income to allow me more time to work on the site.  What that would intail is more in-depth coverage of beer happenings around town.
