So, there you have it. We gave away $239.81 worth of magazines! You're all welcome, but you can also thank Zinio.com for donating the subscriptions!

Okay, second thing. Thanks for all of your feedback regarding the question of advertising here. Looks like the majority of you don't mind a little bit of advertising, however we will continue to be selective. There will NEVER be any "pop up" advertising, or anything video, or any "flash" type of ads. We get that, and we totally agree with you on the annoyance of these types of ads.

The results of our poll? Well considering 478 people have viewed the page, only 149 people answered the poll. I guess that means the rest of you simply don't care enough to take 1 second (literally!) to answer. Anyhow, for those of you who did answer the poll, 87% of you have no problem with us showing a little bit of advertising of some kind.

  2. Hello, I answered 'I don't care' but I agree about the pop-ups. Just and FYI, I just answered your other poll about how often I read your blog and when I hit the back button on the poll site to return here, I got a pop-up! Love the blog and articles, so it doesn't bother me, just wanted to let you know. Keep up the great work!

  7. My internet connections are lousy so I missed the poll but ads don't bother me. I'm still going to read your blog no matter what you do to it. You can't get rid of me that easily.
