Hi, Everyone,
I'm going to be testing some marketing stuff that may or may not lead to visual changes in the site. I have been marketing the site online and there are costs associated with that. I am going to be trying out some advertising stuff that may or not may not fit our site. It might take a few days for it to go live, and I can't accurately predict how well suited the content will be to our site. I am hoping the algorithms that match marketing content to a site work well and we don't end up with a bunch junk littering the site. I'll keep you posted. And please let me or any of the staff know if you find anything unusual on the site that you don't think is correct.

I want to add a little to this, if any of you has a great idea how we can rake in a steady amount of money every month, please let us know. You might have some experience in doing those marketing /advertising thing, and we would love to draw on you knowledge.
In order to grow, we need to make our side more visible, but we still stay with our goal, not to ask you for any money.

Hugs
Linde

The new ad stuff is active. It looks like we’re showing three ads per page, plus the banner ad from En Femme Style. Leave some feedback about how you feel about the ad load. Too much? Just right? Can’t get enough advertisements and want to see more? Let us know.

Katie,
I am sorry, but this is completely intolerable to me. I will not have Google bleed me for advertising information on a site where I discuss my innermost gender identity and sexual orientation stuff and related problems.
I am not opposed to affiliate marketing like the En Femme one as long as they do not get information on me from you without me visiting them, but if this Google Ads type marketing stays on the site, I will delete my account and leave.
As you will recall, a couple of months back I had suggested to install a donation component on the site and I had offered to even pay for the component and its upkeep and to donate a steady amount each month. I still stand by that offer, basically anything to keep Google Ads off the site!
Hugs,
Marie

The google stuff is not set in stone. However, putting financial burden on the members is a hard line we have not wanted to cross since before the site was founded. The difficulty is how to make the site self sustaining without putting the burden on the members.

I invite suggestions, but asking for donations is something we really would rather avoid.
