And now, a word from our sponsor...

Hi all.

Just a few "housekeeping" notes from the Mother Un-Superior (that's me).

After much consideration, I put TWC forward for inclusion on the BlogHer Ad network. I was hesitant for awhile to run ads on the site...but many of my Bloggy friends talked with me at BlogHer and convinced me that it would be a good thing. So I did. And it was accepted. Within the next week or so, the ads will appear in the top right hand column. The beauty of BlogHer (aside from the fact that I think Lisa Stone may be a goddess) is that you don't have to click through for me to get credit. I get every hit counted.

So, if you hate ads, and are wholly offended, then I sincerely apologize in advance. But - and here is the crux of it - I need money. I am in Canada and am not allowed to work as I am on a student visa. So think of it this way - all of you who visit? You'll be keeping me in coffee for the month. Or a martini. Every time you visit, it is like putting a nickel into Dawn's coffee or liqour tin. And god knows, we don't want me to run low on either of those things...or anti-depressants.

Also, the publishing schedule may change a smidge. I am in classes on Mondays and Wednesdays. The Monday - not so bad - 5:30 to 8:30. But Wednesday? 9-12 and then again 5:30-8:30. I have to be on the 7:45 train into Montreal to make the class. Sooooo Wednesday might be delayed...or nonexistant.

I have the 79th chapter almost done right now. I was doing one a day when the confessions were coming in so fast I could barely keep up with them. They've slowed a bit now, so depending on the flow, they might only get published every other day or so. We'll see. Keep 'em coming.

Now I must go read two chapters on Research Methodlogy and a chapter of Curriculum ideology. Contain your excitement, I'll sure try to contain mine....

I don't mind the Blogher ads at all. They are unobtrusive and in the blog links at the bottom, there is usually something fun to read for a boring day.

Angela said...

I think the blogher ad is a fine idea and thanks for even taking the time to do this. I love reading this and what an easy way for me to contribute to your coffee/drink fund - I'm the guilty person who doesn't always send in her contribution for PBS or NPR, wish they had a blogher ad also,haha

I completely agree about the ads - go for it. You do great work dah-ling.

And if you want me to change your template to a 3 column, consider it done. Just say the word.

I say, way to go on having a great idea that can make you money. Ads away! And it's awesome that we dont' have to click them for you to get paid. I hope this site makes you rich... or at least caffinated.

I'm confused as to why people get upset about ads. I'd be upset if someone decided to put ads on MY blog, but if they want to put them on their own then cool for them.

I agree. I don't love ads, but if they're unobtrusive and it helps you out, go for it. We all know it takes time to keep this site going!

Nancy said...

Ads don't bother me. But coffee is life...so I'll click on instead of just reading through bloglines. :) Keep up the good work.

I would be happy to have my clicking contribute to your coffee or drink! I just found your blog about 2 weeks ago and it is a daily stop for me.

Keep up the good work! Good luck at school!

I don't mind my clicking getting you some joe or a nightcap!

I support this ad idea. But you know that, cuz I told you you should put ads on this site to pay for Emily's school uniforms like a month ago :P

Beth said...

Put 'em up. They don't bother me at all. With all the work you do to keep this site going- you must need coffee (and martinis).
