Why the ads??

Back in May (2010), Ardeo and I were gearing up to move across the country - but we didn't have jobs to go to or anything like that. No, we just had our savings and the motivation to sell *everything* we owned. He mentioned that some people do make money by blogging, so I looked into it. I found a good bit of information and signed up for Google AdSense. These are the ads you'll see under each post (or under the most recent post if you don't read here all the time). Google chooses what shows up, I have no control over it; it usually pulls a keyword or something from my writings and runs with that. If you're ever truly interested in something you see via AdSense, feel free to click it - I get a very small percentage of your purchase! (I mean, really, really small... I won't be buying a Lexus with it or anything LOL)

I also have become an Amazon Associate. You know Amazon, they sell everything! And (having married the King of Research) every now and then I'll have reviews of things we do still own, which will also link to the product on Amazon. Sometimes you'll just see a random link, but that's my ADD at work. Again, only if you're seriously interested in something I've linked from Amazon, you click that link and I get a small percentage of your purchase there too.

And that's the story of why I made the blog publicly searchable, and why I have ads running on here.
