Ma Vind

Yes, I've sold out.

I am beginning to place Google Ads spaces on this blog. I am doing this for purely selfish and financial reasons. If these ads bring in a few dozen dollars per month, that would be more than my host mother makes in a month of working every day at one of the village stores, so why not? With the cumulated money from the next 18 months, this blog could bring me enough revenue to buy a bed and desk when I get back home. After seeing that I receive visitors on this blog who are obviously not just friends and family (I don't have friends in China), I believe that there may be some money to be made without exclusively pimping my nearest and dearest to the advertising johns.

I will do my best in the next months to make these advertisements noticeable but unobtrusive. This is an experiment, and I will be doing this for at least three months to see if it's worth it. If my readers turn out to not be the advertisement-clicking type and I'm not bringing in any money, I'll drop the ads in the summer. Until then, enjoy the new Sold-Out Adventures in Moldova.
