Regarding Advertising

I am keenly aware that I hate advertising.  However, I am also keenly aware that I am uninterested in being broke forever.  I am trying to build something massive, and have been for some time. Part of that is, I hope that I can see some revenue come back from what I’m putting together.  Now, I will never be like those clickbait sites we see all the time where 9/10ths of the things you can click on wherever you are on the website, are advertisements, or links to pages full of essentially nothing but links to other pages like it, all of which have tons of advertisements.  It’s disgusting.  I’m trying to keep it to one advertisement on pages with one small blog post, and one at the top plus one at the bottom of pages with larger blog posts.

I understand most people have plugins or otherwise use extensions which block advertising, and I’m cool with that. I do too. So you all will only see the advertisement markers.  Plus, I know I have some readers and website visitors who have been with me for over a decade. All of you know I’ve gone the vast majority of that time previously fully free of advertisements, entirely relying on donations and sales of whatever it is I have for sale at that moment.  Many of you also know, most of that time has been frustrating for me because I’ve made far less than I aimed to.  Even bottom line sales hoping for so it at least pays for itself, almost always fall short.

So please understand my decision to start advertising in my blog.  I also started a relatively short time ago, regarding putting advertisements up on pondbrain’s main website.  I’m slowly working on a different version of pondbrain which isn’t so slapdash.  I would like for everything housed within to feel like it has a reason for existing, rather than just another discarded website on an index of a website that exists only to index things from the past.

Please contact me if you have complaints, or compliments.  Either way, I do like hearing what you think.
