"Real" post tomorrow perhaps, if The Child decides that she does not actually need to scream for an hour and a half when put to bed. She is so devious - she throws her pacifier onto the floor as soon as we shut the door, then shouts "DUMMY! DUMMY!" until she hyperventilates and struggles to breathe. We completed this exercise 13 times tonight before The Dude gave up and sat by her bed until she fell asleep. Oh, and yes, she still has a dummy. Please,judge me.
Anyway, the matter at hand is this. Kristen at Motherhood Uncensored was inspired to do this drive of sorts, to motivate people to click on through to their feeds to increase the blogger's ad revenue for the month of August. I don't need to tell you that there are a lot of people who are experiencing difficult times around here, and this is just one tiny way to help them out. No commenting is needed, just page views. Remember, it's something silly like 1 cent per page click or some such shit, so read a blogger's entire archives or something!
As you can see, I have ads on my site too. Please recall that any money made from these ads (and let me assure you, it takes a tiny fish like me bloody years to earn a meagre sum), goes to other bloggers, not to keep my mulleted banshee in pacifiers. Stopping by every once in awhile from Google Reader or Bloglines means that I might eventually have some spare cash to give a blogger $25 toward an IVF, or just send a random package to someone to cheer her up in bad times. Admittedly, I would do this anyway without ads, but my husband would get on my case more than he already does for giving money to alleged strangers. So, do this for The Dude, and my own sanity so I don't have to hear him bitching at me about this shit.
Check the sidebar for the cool flare that goes with this drive. You hop on this old bandwagon as well - just visit Motherhood Uncensored and let her know you're game.
Go forth and click, and be sure to check Kristen's master list to see the participants.
