I’ll admit, I was tempted. So much so that I even signed up for adsense and was given the green light for a trial – but I’ve not gone any further. Why? Well, I’m a marketing prof and I spend my day teaching people about advertising and its effects and how marketing can warp our sense of the world. “We need this” or “we need that” is just not something I want to be a part of. I love knowledge and I love it more when it’s high quality and free. So, hopefully, by keeping this site Ad Free, I’ll not let people feel they NEED to buy anything.
This is not to say I won’t monetize in any other ways, but let me assure you, I don’t plan to use Google Ads or any other Ads to make money from this blog.
