I don’t believe in using my blog as a generator of revenue but as a way to share information in the community. As of May 1 I have joined The Lounge by InfoZerk. I have been a long-time follower of James Avery, reading his blog and seeing him on Twitter. We were introduced when I started using GraffitiCMS as my blogging engine and his Graffiti.Redirect plugin (which I am now a contributor).
I decided to join The Lounge for several reasons:
- The network consists of many people I respect in the development community.
- The advertisers are top-notch organizations and am proud to have them represented on my blog.
- Self-promotion, getting the work out about the products and services I provide.
- The payment we receive being part of the network can go toward server hosting fees.
All in all, I think it is definitely a win-win for everyone. You can read the announcement about the new Lounge members on the Infozerk blog.
