How Our Ad Transactions Work

Thinking about advertising or using a sponsored post with us?   Here’s how it works.

Currently, all advertising is done through Google, but send us a message and we may be able to do a sponsored post with you.  The post usually runs for 30-90 days.

Under no circumstances will the publisher be liable for any incidental, special or consequential damages, including damages for loss of advertising or other associated revenue arising in relation to any ad placed on a publisher’s website.
