My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Selling Out

You may have noticed a slightly different look to the blog in the last couple of weeks.  Yes there are a lot more Amazon.com ads then there were previously, but this also coincides with the complete lack of other ads.

I used to utilize Google Adsense to run some ads on the Deaf Dogs blog, but they had some issues with the way that my ads were viewed.  As it turns out, having a loyal cadre of followers can bite you on the ol' backside when it comes to Google Adsense.  They seem to think that you're up to shenanigans when most of the ads are viewed by the same handful of people.  After a while of this pattern, they decided to remove me from their program forever.  Bummer.  You can't fight the Google machine, it's just the way it goes.

I sell out, that's a given, so what to do?  Well, the next (and possibly only) avenue now for the Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes website to harvest its burgeoning millions is Amazon.com.  If you see something interesting from Amazon.com on the website, go ahead and get it.  You deserve it.  But you only deserve it if you go through my website.  Use the "Search Amazon" box on the left hand side.  Do it.  Do it now.  Don't ask questions.     

And if you happen to be doing a little shopping online and plan on purchasing something from Amazon.com, please go through my humble little website, I'll be most appreciative. Again, use the "Search Amazon" box on the left hand side.  It will certainly make you a better person.  

I'll try to remind you to conduct your Amazon.com shopping through the site again in the future.  I'm also planning on reviewing some books and albums I've recently purchased (and enjoyed) and putting links on the website.  Coming soon....
