Experimenting with commerce
This particular blog was the first one I ever wrote. Over the use I have used it as a testing ground before I trotted stuff out on my more well read blogs. I am now experimenting with "Monetizing" my blogs. On the one hand I'm against the commercialization of almost everything we see in today's world. In football there's the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Bowl. In baseball that home run was brought to you by Mr. Handyman. This state park is sponsored by Pepsi. On the other hand writing blogs takes time, our most valuable resource. I once saw a speaker proclaim that time was more valuable than money. "After all" he said, "we can make more money, but we can't make more time." With that in mind I'm trying to recoup some resources for the amount of time I've put into the various on line writing I've done over the years. I'm not sure at this point if this will prove advantageous and if ads become more trouble then they're worth I'll pull the plug.
