Let’s Talk About Money

Over the past few years, I’ve let this site run at a loss. It’s not super expensive to host, but it’s not super cheap either. But I’d like to change that. I’m not going to be writing for profit or for my only job at any point in the near future, but I’d like to offset the costs of hosting the site. I think that’s fair.

To do so, I’ve joined the Carbon Ads network. There’s a tiny, tasteful ad in the sidebar. Just one, though, and that’s all you’ll see.

Writing here has never been about money, but I’ve always liked to be reasonable about my costs in everything I do. You will see no negative changes here — I won’t be doing clickbait headlines, listicles, or any of that other crap to drive up page views and impressions. I just want to offset some of my costs here. Perhaps I’ll even write a little more regularly, something which has fallen by the wayside a bit.

I’m running this as a little experiment, and we’ll see how it goes. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know.

Thank you, as always, for reading.
