.com, Adverts and Charity

18 May

Hi everyone!

I wanted to update all my wonderful readers for making my first months on the internet so fulfilling. It means a lot when you have views, rant about them rather terribly and people pay attention. Thanks to you, I’ve now been eligible to get advertising on my website! Advertising is something I was apprehensive about putting up. It takes away from the blog’s content and makes it feel a bit more commercial. But then I thought, hey, a blogger has to make money too, right? And it also became clear that I could put the money that I make to be put to a good cause. So, I’ve decided that 50% of the money I make will  go towards charity. No, not some slight portion, I mean 50% of the money. Remember, that every time you click an ad, you’re helping a charity. My idea is to change the charity every second month. This month’s charity is going to be getting safe water for 100 people in Haiti, which is going to cost £100. I’m setting the bar low because I don’t know how much money this is going to generate. I will be doing this through Oxfam and to find out more about how it works head on over to http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/oxfam-unwrapped/ecowarriors/safe-water-for-10-people-ou5087ws

This will all happen over on my new domain http://www.aculturedlad.com

All of these changes should be in place within the next 24 hours.

Thank you so much
