Tune down the worst ads and popups
I thought this was a spam-website or a scam of some sort. Only by chance did I read the about us section and figured it may be legit.
I think ads are fine, but their current presentation (popups, in your face ads, etc) only detract from your otherwise good content. Popups are just extremely annoying.
I'd also tune down the social media buttons, if people like your content they'll share it anyways (no need for a ultra large FB-button).
