This website is relatively new at about six months of age, and with four blog pages it is fun to keep up with readers as they increase in number. I have been fortunate to have posted some projects and content that have interested readers and as a result, I have had a good number of people who return and send links to other sites. This causes blog watchers to pay attention to traffic as it is another potential dancing bear opportunity. I receive emails to sell almost everything imaginable and today I received an offer to review items for an electronics distributor. They will send a product of my choice, I review it, and write a review with a link to their site. And I get to keep the item, free! But, as I have posted before, there is no such thing as free. As I said above, I understand commerce and good for them. But they don't understand my views and expectations for the website.
When I started this site I had several goals in mind. I wanted to share space and ideas, entertain and inform, and be commercial free. Those ideals have not changed. You will never see dancing bears here-ever! When I post a project I try to source locally and to have readers find materials easily. In the case of special items I have sourced particular brands, but not as an endorsement but as a guide. I do not receive payment for any of my posts. And that is the way it will stay. I may post photos of frogs or monkeys, but no dancing bears, I promise...Thanks for returning and being part of the site!
