... that I've activated Google Ads for this blog. Its something I decided to try as a way of generating some revenue to offset the costs in time and materials that I've invested in providing the content you find here each weekday. Hopefully this change won't be too intrusive for your tastes. It wasn't a decision I made lightly, and it wasn't my intention to monetize this blog once it reach a certain level of success. At this point, its more of an experiment than anything, but it may prove to be a more palatable alternative to making Today's Inspiration a subscriber site ( which was another option I was considering ). Personally, I would rather keep TI ad-free, but as I explained in my 1,000th post, my passion for researching and writing about the illustrators of the mid-century period is eating into too much of the time I should be spending on making a living. If this experiment is successful, it might be enough to offset my other obligations in that regard.
I welcome your thoughts and opinions on the subject - and thanks to you all for your support and enthusiasm.
