DevOps’ish Ad Format

Your ad will be featured natively in e-mails to all subcribers and on At special request, I can share your ad on social media. However, a limit exists of no more than three shares per week on a schedule that fits the needs of advertiser(s).

Ads include a bolded headline, additional copy, links as specified, and are followed by the italicized word, SPONSORED. This native format prevents ad blockers from blocking ads. It also eliminates a lot of headaches with regards to formatting. Total ad length including headline and SPONSORED tag should not exceed 280 characters.
