You might notice on the right sidebar that there's now an ad box. That's right, I'm testing out ads on Mithril Wisdom. That's because I've decided to sign up with Project Wonderful, an ad network that caters for blogs like mine as well as video games, webcomics and geek finery in general. Some of my favourite webcomics and blogs have Project Wonderful ads on their sites, so I thought I'd give it a go.
Why am I doing this?
Well, it has to do with giveaways. I really want to do more giveaways and competitions for you guys; I really enjoy doing it. The trouble is, postage can be a nightmare of a cost (especially since about half of the people who read this blog are on the other side of the Atlantic).
My thinking is that whatever revenue I get from these ads (and it's not a lot at the moment, trust me. At this rate it'll take me about 3 years to get less than $10) I can put towards getting really good prizes for competitions and being able to afford international postage for all of my giveaways. It'll also mean I can keep buying the www.mithrilwisdom.com URL every year.
My pledge to you
I've been debating hosting ads on the site for a while, and as long as they're on here I give you the following promise:
Every single penny that I get from these ads I will put back into making this blog better. That means more giveaways, more competitions, and more awesomeness for you. Every. Single. Penny.
I also plan to add this pledge to a disclaimer/disclosure page up on top so it'll be there permanently.
With that in mind, I want to host another giveaway once I hit 350 subscribers on here. I'm still unsure of what to give though (it's a toss up between zombies and steampunk at the moment) so let me know your thoughts in the comments.
How were your July4th celebrations? What kind of stuff would you like to see in the next giveaway? Have I sacrificed my dignity and self respect in the name of making a quick buck?
