I don’t run Dave’s Homestead for money. I have a full time job that pays my bills. However, running this website takes an extreme amount of my time, and a good bit of my own resources to make the videos and articles you see here.
In order to keep the site running and to improve the quality of the videos I need to try to recoup some of the money I spend.
To don’t run on donations or subscriptions so I have to have advertisers. This means I have certain pages I have to have – like advertisements and disclaimers. The sub pages under the Site related tab is how I do that. I don’t like donations, as I am a man that can take care of myself. I am a free market capitalism and don’t have a problem with advertising as I am exchanging value not begging. You will never see a “go fund me” article on this site, but you may see a “kickstarter” type post. The difference is – give me some money vs give me some money in exchange for something.
Under this Site related page I link to:
(If you are a paid content provider visit Advertising instead of Write a Guest Post)
As an experiment in the “Laffer Curve”, as well as to improve the user experience I have severely cut back on my advertisements – especially the affiliate sidebar ads. This means I need more comments and participation from you to drive the engagement up so those few clicks are worth more.
As always I do the work to keep Dave’s Homestead running in order to serve the prepper community – so please don’t hesitate to let me know what you are thinking. Use that contact Dave page to email me. I read every comment personally and try to respond quickly.
