Well, first off, I will tell you that you must have thousands of visitors to make any money doing this. In 4-5 months I’ve made a whopping $4.63. So, I think I answered the question of how much can be made… at least for my blog.
I decided I would take down the ads. I had answered my question and that was that. There weren’t a lot of financial benefits and, after all, I didn’t start my blog as a way to make money. But, each time I would start to remove the ads something would stop me. I didn’t feel I should leave them there as they were, but it didn’t seem right to take them down either.
Over the last few weeks I’ve found what I believe to be the reason why it didn’t feel right to remove the ads. I’ve spent time in prayer and in thought about this and feel that it is right and it is okay. So, here’s the plan…. I’m going to leave the ads up and each time I reach a certain dollar amount (I’m thinking every $50 to $100) I’m going to send it to a charitable organization. It will take a bit of time to add up to those dollar amounts. However, I don’t think the Lord has limits on how long it takes to reach the goal. I think His concern is that we choose the right goal and that we reach it.
And, there’s more…. since I couldn’t do this without each one of you that visit me I’m going to let you pick which organization the money goes to each time. You’ll see that I’ve added a poll beneath the ads. There are several very worthy organizations listed and by voting you get to take part in making the choice of where the money goes. Next week I will post some information about the 4 organizations that you now see in the poll. If you have a favorite charitable organization that you would like included in the list, please let me know in the comments and I'll add it to the list either now or in the future.
Thanks so much to all of you that visit. You encourage me, you uplift me, you are my friends. We all share so much with each other in our posts and comments and prayers. Now let’s share with others that are in need of help outside of “bloggy land”.
