I was reading over at Big Pink Cookie about the tip jar concept (which has never worked for me) and how people attempt to make any amount of money at all to defray the expense of running a website. My only income from running this site is what I get from Amazon.com referrals (If you use the link on the right to get to Amazon, I get a small commission on the sale). Last quarter this brought in $45. It’s not a lot, but it’s more than nothing, right?
I’m torn about advertising – I had banner ads, etc., and yet when I found a program I really wanted to join, Google’s AdSense, I was told my site didn’t qualify because it was a personal website. Well, that just stinks. And why is MY site not qualified but other blogs are? What changes can I make that would get my site the thumbs-up I so desire? Market it as a humor magazine? Decide on a theme and only talk about, say, snowblowers?
Mail is back.
I’m having mail problems. Just wanted to let you know in case there was something important you were trying to send me. If you leave a comment here I’ll get back to you later.
Update: It’s a server problem, but the mail isn’t being lost. Eventually, I’ll get all the lovely fan mail you guys send. Not.
If I catch the guy who gave me back my horrible, hacking cough, I’m gonna….I’m gonna….
Update: Unless it’s Junior. I’m not going to thump him, so just stop dialing up DSS.
When this whole Lacy Peterson thing occurred, I remember looking at the photos of Scott and thinking “My God, it’s Dean Cain!” I told some people that Dean Cain could play him in any made-for-television movies, but by that time Scott was sporting facial hair and the “oh the clorine in the pool must have turned my hair red” look. Suddenly everyone was telling me that he was a dead ringer for Ben Affleck, and I was full of beans for even mentioning Dean Cain.
Guess who just got the nod for the USA Network’s movie about the crime?
So, any other movies you need help casting?
From November 1st through the 30th I’ll be working on my NaNoWriMo novel, so remember to visit my NaNo Blog.
