In Plain English:
This site contains banner and text ads.
There are really two things that we want to disclaim as clearly as possible.
1. This site is monetized. In other words, we do make some money from some of the posts and links on this site.
2. This site’s main purpose is not income generation. This site’s main purpose is to be a platform for us to talk and write about: Journalism. The goal is for this site to be as useful to you as possible. Making money is a pleasant side-effect of all this and no more.
More importantly, this means that we will never lie to you just to make a few bucks.
If you have any questions about this, please get in touch with me.
