Most everyone is getting the hang of formatting these ads. Yeay! Now for your advanced course in ad writing. Titles. Big splashy titles that scream, "Buy Me!" Place the title on a separate line and separate it with an empty space before the ad text. Why? Ask the ASCII gods.
Also, please remember, no all caps. WRITING LIKE THIS IS RUDE in interspace. I'll drop the offending text into lower case so fast that your third grade teacher will have a heart attack.
Ok, here goes. I've probably forgotten something, so I'll nag you about it next week. Happy shopping.
