You may notice over the coming weeks ads appearing on the site. I have officially started to monetize in order to take the first big, exciting, scary step towards being able to be a full-time blogger/author someday. (Yay dreams!)
I will be playing with placement and content to find the optimal mix. I’m also still in the process of tweaking the structure and features of the site to be where I want it to be. This is taking forever because I can’t afford a developer right now so I’m left trying to figure out php on my own. It’s slow-going but I’m getting there!
Please be patient with me in the coming weeks or months, particularly in regards to the Google Adsense ones (currently placed at the bottom of posts, but that may change!). Some ads may have content that is not vegan-friendly as Google and I get to know each other better. I will do my best to block content that I don’t like, but it may take some time to find the sweet spot and will likely never be perfect. If I find too much stuff I don’t like is getting through, I will take them down.
The ads on the right-hand side of the site are all companies that I personally buy from and love. They don’t pay out as well as other companies but I’m doing my best to try to only promote products that I myself use and can recommend.
I hope to be able to move to sponsored ads or no ads in the future by creating ebooks and online programs, but for right now I need the extra income to help me manage server/hosting fees, site development costs, money on equipment and ingredients, etc., not to mention pay off my debt and build up some savings so that I can one day take the thrilling leap into 24/7 entrepreneurship.
