As some of you noticed, a while ago I added amazon and google adverts to this blog, in an attempt to raise some much needed funds. However, it was always a provisional exercise - and I've now decided to all it a day.
Nevertheless, I still need to raise some funds, so I've added a little note to the bottom of my posts inviting happy readers to contribute a dollar or two. I think that's more appropriate as it at least connects the money raised to the value of the blog.
I'm not sure how long I'll run with this venture. At the moment, I've officially begun an MTh at Spurgeons College, but I've not actually got the funds to proceed to the next module. So, the missus and I are looking for ways to raise the necessary £300. Maybe after that, I'll take the begging note down, or perhaps it will then go towards raising funds for secondary needs like food and clothing!
If anyone finds the new set-up too intrusive, offensive or inappropriate, please feel free to say so.
