As you may have noticed, I am now offering a small amount of advertising space on this site. It may or may not be coincidence that I began offering advertising at the same time as I bought my first house and began facing mortgage payments for the first time. I am handling all advertising requests personally and attempting to ensure that I only run advertising that might benefit the readers of this site. I have no plans to run BlogAds, Google AdWords or anything of that nature. These are not pay-per-click ads, but you can still support this site by clicking through and reading about whatever product is being offered. If you are interested in running advertising on this site, please feel free to contact me.
This week’s sponsor is Codex Hosting. Kevin, the owner of the company, has become a friend of mine. He is one of the few readers of this site whom I have met personally (he convinced me to drive all the way to Niagara-on-the-Lake to meet him!). He is positioning Codex Hosting as a company that will provide all the space, bandwidth and features needed for a wide variety of web sites, but in particular as a company that will provide great support. For those familiar with budget web hosting, I’m sure you are familiar with companies that oversell their products and underdeliver support! Kevin hopes to correct this trend, offering “more disk space and bandwidth than you need” (feel free to hold him to that!) and “most importantly, we offer friendly, personal service.”
Codex is offering a 20% discount to anyone who signs up for the service through my site. If you are in the market for hosting for a personal site, blog, church site, etc, why not give Codex a try. By doing so you’d support both Kevin and myself. What more could you want?
And now, back to our regularly-scheduled programming.
