Honesty in Fundraising

I don’t know about you, but I believe that the things we’re talking about here are really important.

I spend a lot of time on the posts I write, and increasingly, that takes me away from other paying work. I also need to keep my hosting package fairly robust, because I’m getting a good deal of traffic. I checked my analytics last night and was a bit shocked to see that this site has had over 75,000 pageviews in the past 30 days.

The bottom line is: this is my passion, but it doesn’t pay. Not yet.

I have some things I’m working on. I ask for your prayers — specifically for God’s guidance — as I seek the best way to build on what we’ve started here.

Until then, I need to try to recoup what costs I can. I added those terrible ads beneath the post titles. Adsense tells me these are the best to use. I hate them. They absolutely violate my aesthetic sensibilities. I’m not sure how long I can take it.  (Some of you have told me you’re seeing ads that are inappropriate. I’m playing whack-a-mole with those, because they’re served up by Google and I have little control over them other than to report them when I see them.)

I have also added a “donate” button on the sidebar, top-right. If you find what I’m doing here valuable, and want to make a contribution to the effort, I’d appreciate it.

I’m always looking for new and better (and less obtrusive) ways to monetize the content I provide. It takes as much time as a part-time job, so it’d be nice if it helped pay the bills of my large family.

A final note: I’ve had a few people ask me about subscribing to posts by email. I’ve added a subscription page for those who would like this option. It’s easy, doesn’t cost anything, and I won’t ever sell your information.

As you were.
