I like to give a little thanks to advertisers when I can. They make this site possible. I would like to remind everyone that I do not necessarily endorse the product(s) offered by the advertisers.
budgets are sexy says
Congrats on pulling bronze for the blogging award! This is my first time checking out your site (i’m a newbie), and it’s pretty tight.
I only hope to be one of those top 10 referring blogs in the near future. A guy’s gotta start somewhere, right? Congrats again.
What is with the reverse funnel stuff?
“I would like to remind everyone that I do not necessarily endorse the product(s) offered by the advertisers.”
I think I know where you are going. I understand you wanting to monitize your blog, but this particular nod to a scam site is a bit obnoxious.
Lazy Man says
I haven’t the time or desire to investigate the “reverse funnel stuff” in detail. I know that it’s topical, i.e. finance-related. In general, I don’t vet advertisers. I believe that my readers understand what financial choices are good and bad for them. I would even take it a step further and say that it would hypocritical of me to write about saving money and making money and then passing up advertising because I don’t understand it enough.

Lazy, nice way to look at it. selling ads is selling ads, not endorsing products.
