A Couple of Minor Changes

Filed under: Site Stuff — Brian Lutz @ 12:00 am

Update:  Yeah, it’s an April Fool’s Day post.

For nearly three years now I’ve been running this Blog, and although for the most part I am happy with what I’ve been able to accomplish here, there are still a few things that I am not quite satisfied with on this Blog.  Specifically, the fact that I have thus far been unable to cover the various expenses that are involved with running the Blog to be an ongoing sore spot for me.  While the expenses are relatively minor in the grand scheme of things, there is still some out-of-pocket cost to me to keep this Blog up and running.  In an effort to rectify this situation, I will be making a few subtle

changes to this Blog over the course of the next few weeks.  For the most part, you should notice little difference from what you normally see here, but it is possible that you might see the occasional banner ad appearing on the site every so often.  To be honest, I’m not all that thrilled about having to resort to this approach, but I do have some expenses related to keeping this Blog up and running, and it does make sense to try to

find some way to offset those expenses.  The guy from the ad serving company I talked with assured me that they very carefully screen the advertising that they serve before it goes out, and that everything they advertise is 100% legal, moral and ethical.  This way, I should be able to keep the site going and the bills paid, and I will be able to continue serving up the finest in insomnia-addled drivel without having to worry about the costs associated with running this Blog.  If this approach seems a bit intrusive, I apologize in advance, but the realities of the Bloggng industry do mean that ultimately, such measures are going to become necessary for everyone if they wish to keep their Blogs up and running without incurring significant out-of-pocket expenses.

As usual, I thank you for your continued patronage and understanding, and I look forward to serving you in the future.
