A few announcements in this post.
First and foremost, if you’re in Kagawa tomorrow and are not sure about what to do, let me advise you to attend the Hyōge Matsuri. A pretty unique matsuri that it’d be sad to miss if you can avoid to. (well, actually, I’ll most likely miss it tomorrow). To get a glimpse of what it is about, just click the link above.
Next, you may or may not have noticed a new button in the sidebar on the right. Yes, I’m talking about the “donate” button. I’m not exactly trying to make money with this blog. I’d need much more traffic than I currently have for that, and to ever get that traffic, I’d need to talk about something other than what’s happening in the smallest prefecture of Japan. That being said, I wouldn’t mind if the blog made enough money to pay itself (you know, hosting and all that). So far I have used Google Ads, you may have noticed them, but honestly, I don’t really like the idea of having ads on my blog (or at least ads I didn’t choose – if you know how Google ads work, you know that I have no idea of what appears in that spot when you visit my blog). So I’m trying this donate button, to see if anyone would be willing to help me with those things. It may or may not stay there in the long term, we’ll see (basically the idea is that if I make more through it than through the ads, I get rid of the ads, if I don’t… I’ll see…).
What do you think? Do you like the idea of a donate button on this blog? Would you donate? Or would you rather have ads and click or not click on them? (according to Google Ads terms and conditions, I’m not allowed to ask you to click on them, so do what you want with them). And actually, do those ads bother you?
I am greatly interesting in your feedback about those things, so if you have an opinion, do not hesitate to share it.
