Cyber Pennies, Bono, Jessie and Me

Have you noticed the adverts on the site? I know! It's ever so modern, isn't it? Just like reading the Guardian.

Do you feel cheap, looking at them? Well don't, because I don't get any money if you just look; you have to click on the Google ads for me to earn pennies, and you have to actually buy something from Amazon for me to get a cut.

Aw, c'mon. Even Bono advertises for Louis Vuitton. Don't feel sullied. Don't feel cheap. Just click on the Google ads every so often as you pass by; once a month maybe, or twice a year if that feels too arduous. For me, it'll be the cyber equivalent of seeing a penny in the street and picking it up - every time you click, I'll feel lucky and loved.

And if I save it all up, at the end of the year I should have enough to buy half a dozen tins of dog food for Jessie. If everyone who reads this buys a Kindle, I should have enough money to send her to 'live with a nice family on a farm' when the time comes.

AND DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMPETITION TO WIN SIGNED COPIES OF MY BOOKS. PLEASE CHECK OUT THIS POST FOR DETAILS.

Never heard ads on a blog explained or publicized more eloquently or amusingly! For more reasons than that though, I have a blog award for you over here: http://herbookself.blogspot.com/2010/09/bbaw-future-treasures-one-lovely-blog.html

Thank you! I love your blog and I'm delighted to have an award.

I went a bit crazy and posted three times today so I'll blog about it next week.

Have a lovely birthday weekend x
