I've been blogging since 2008, beginning with THE APRON STAGE , then FIVE CROWS, which I had to change, because Chinese pornographers filled up my comments, and then came THE CHATTERING CROW. All that time, I said I'd never have ads, because I wasn't in it for the money, and yammer yammer yammer.
Then it came to me that if I can't work 20 hours a week as a receptionist, maybe I could advertise the blog and make enough money to go to Uruguay in two years when Harrison gets off his mission. (I invited myself, when Charles and Erica announced that they wanted to meet him). It means that I have to blog more consistently, despite mental health breakdowns.
What does it mean for you the reader? Nothing. Ads will appear at the right and you can ignore them completely. Who cares which 5 foods you can't eat for a smaller stomach, especially if one of them is a banana. I need half a banana on my cereal each morning. I'm not cutting out bananas.
However, if you see an ad that interests you (for me that would be anything to do with interior design), you can click on it, and I'll make even more money.
In other words, you can make me rich!
Or you could send me a suitcase filled with cash. Whichever is easier for you.
This is the last word on this subject. Being a salesperson is really low on my aptitude scale, right down there with accountant and statistician.
