This is my policy on advertising on this blog: If I use (or have used) the product and it is a quality product at a reasonable price, then it's acceptable. The first hurdle I have to get over is myself (and, trust me, the bar is high).
What don't I do? I don't advertise anything that I do not personally use.
So on this blog, you see advertisements for HostGator, GoDaddy, Amazon, and more that you can see here.
I make no excuses for accepting and/or using advertisements (kids in college and all that), but I think it is worth noting here that I cannot be bought.
I have certainly seen ads on other sites that would go with this blog's topic. Ads that actually pay rather well. However, I find the way those advertisers do business is not in the best interests of self-publishers, so you will never see them here.
Why this post? It's housekeeping, if you will. A post to point to in the future.
What do you think about blogs that accept advertising? Leave me a comment below.
