I sure hope you don’t mind, but…

I’ve just been accepted into WordPress’s WordAds program.

I know, I know…

But, hey, I am an American of the US and you know how we like to market and consume and to consume and market.

Besides, you’re talking to (well, not really but you know what I mean) a guy on disability who needs the extra coin.

And oh yes I did just play the disability card.


The way I see it, playing the disability card is kind of like cigarettes — smoke ’em if you got ’em!

Anyway, to better accommodate things, I’m going to be changing up to a new theme.

Which stinks because I really love this theme.

But it’s probably gonna be a bit messy for a bit until I get things laid out all proper like.

I’m pretty sure some of you are gonna bail on me over this and I am very sorry for that.

You will be missed.


But you know what they say…

A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do…

    1. It’s a WordPress advertising program that, if accepted, allows you to monetize your site. WordPress already advertises on your site, if you join this program, there will be more ads but you will get a cut of the profit. You have to meet the threshold of monthly page view requirements before they will accept you. You can learn all you need to know here http://wordads.co/

  1. When you have a disability you have to get on with your life as best you can. My disability got me a college education, courtesy of the Vocational Rehab programs. Otherwise I never would have gotten the education that helped me to climb to the bottom of the corporate ladder.

    Go for it!

    1. You Canadians are so nice. I have no idea how the two will compare in the future but right now they are equals: 0 for 0. But my money is on the AdWords money in the long run. Not everyone is as nice as a Canadian. Perhaps a more correct way to say that is, “Most everyone is not as nice as a Canadian. :)

  2. Congrats on your new adventure!

    For the record, I only dump blogs if
    a) WordPress does it for me, because it sometimes randomly decides on its own that I don’t need to follow a particular blog
    b) the person writes constantly and crowds out my feed. I don’t “scroll to load more,” so if I’m missing the rest of the gang because of blog hogs, then I unfollow.

  3. Good luck Kurt. I’ve been pulling my hair out trying to switch from WordPress to GoDaddy this past week. I’m not sure why and what the problem is, but hope to have it solved soon. I hope you don’t run into such headaches switching themes. Let me know, because I may have to do that too. ;)

    1. Yeah, I’m an old hand at changing themes. Not too long ago I used to self-host; and since I never had much traffic, I’d change themes like I’d change socks. Didn’t have to worry about impacting anyone. Little different now.

      Good luck self-hosting. Tough gig. Hope you can make it work. :)

  4. :) WordAds is non-intrusive, I am sure no-one would mind. What really pisses me off is sites sites that split their posts to 23 pages and have you click “next” 23 times (to display 23 x 4 ) Ads. Now that is annoying.

    Goodluck with your site and with making some money :)

    Could you let me know how long it took for your site to get accepted to WordAds? I would like to add your site to my post about WordAds here:
