The Almighty Dollar

First and foremost, I have created The Virtual Sink to serve as an outlet for my creative urges. Still, it would be nice to be able to make a little money off the site. I'd like to make enough to cover the site's operating costs, which don't amount to much. I would be incredibly happy if I could make a bit more than that, which I would put towards making more produced and scripted movies such as Invisible Ninja, but I know that's not going to happen for a long time.

One of the ways to generate some revenue is to solicit sponsored posts on a pay-per-post basis. I'm somewhat leery about doing that unless the post is somehow germane to this website. I could also solicit links on a pay-per-click basis, which is a bit more palatable but the monetary return is less reliable. Either way, I am going to have to score a higher ranking in Google keyword searches somehow. That means driving in more traffic and getting more links from external sites. I should also do some sort of search engine optimization, which is a task I have been avoiding.

So, in short, expect to see some ads here in the main section from time to time. I'll keep them to a minimum, though. If I do ever accept a sponsored post, I'll mark those posts as such with a graphic specific badge.

I now return you to you regularly scheduled Virtual Sink post.


  1. Hey Tommy! I feel personally that anyone with a creative side and original content should be the ones who earn a buck from their content! I too run ads. Have you checked out twittads? They have a good program! Check them out -> <- Also I hope you don't mind that I've put you on follow, both your blog and your twitter! Have a great day! xo~

  2. Hi Marcy.

    That's a good way of looking at it. Thank you. I'll check out twittads this weekend. Thanks for the tip.
