(No WoW content, just a quick PSA. Feel free to skip.)I like this, even if it's an XKCD knockoff.

As August winds down, I see that the site broke 50k visitors this month for the first time since the Cataclysm release, which is totally awesome. Seriously. I’m waving graphs at my wife right now, and she’s laughing at me. Yes, I’m a big nerd. Leave me alone.

Unfortunately, donations haven’t kept track. This whole month, I’ve had a grand total of 2 (yes, two) donations.  For you stats fans, that’s a 0.00004% donation rate.

This isn’t a “hey give me money you freeloader” nag. I have a great job with the Army that pays me well, so I’m not starving or anything, and frankly, there’s a hell of a lot of more important things to be spending money on then donating money to some dude who writes about numbers in an online game.  That said, I’m now spending several hundred dollars a year on various web-related expenses, and my wife has hinted that the family budget would appreciate it if the site could support itself a little better.

As such, I’m going to be exploring some advertising options for the site. (Yes, I have Google Adsense right now, but that’s pennies a day.)  I promise that this won’t turn into AdTown Central; I hate the damn websites that have a tiny square of content surrounded by fifteen ads, and I know you do too. If you’ve been following me for a while, you should know I have standards; I try really hard not to put out something that sucks. If someone wants to pay me to pitch something, you’ll know it’s a sponsored post/placement, and I’ll never do stupid stuff like “hey, I’m going to break this 2000-word article into five parts so you have to click through and read a new ad on every page!” If you think I’m being hypocritical, let me know in the comments/forums and we’ll talk about it.

If you want to advertise, contact me via the form on my About Me page, and we’ll work something out.

PSA over. We now return to our regularly scheduled programming. If you read this far, here’s a bonus: I’ve started working up a feral/guardian gear list, and here’s the first draft.

P.S. Oh,  I don’t mind if you use Adblock or something to that effect; hell, I use Adblock all the time. Just remember that for a lot of Internet-types who aren’t as fortunate as me to have a great job, ad revenue is something they eat off of, so try to do something to help them out every now and then. Doesn’t have to be a donation; just share a link, tell a friend, namedrop in trade chat, whatever. Thanks.

  34. Yet another thing to mention is that an online business administration diploma is designed for students to be able to easily proceed to bachelors degree programs. The 90 credit diploma meets the other bachelor college degree requirements so when you earn your current associate of arts in BA online, you may have access to up to date technologies with this field. Some reasons why students have to get their associate degree in business is because they can be interested in the field and want to receive the general instruction necessary just before jumping in a bachelor diploma program. Thx for the tips you actually provide as part of your blog.
