TSLL blog began in December of 2009. In January 2011, the first ad went live. Since that time, I have played with a handful of different options to keep the blog engaging, attractive, but also free for readers to enjoy.
The blogging industry, which is a small, but growing and ever-changing component of the virtual landscape, is an entity that is constantly changing forms, adjusting to markets and causing changes to the market as well. But something I am most appreciative of is the readers new and long-time of TSLL who continue to stop by, read the most recent post, or a post from the archives, shop the TSLL Boutique and from time to time say hello by sharing a comment or sending an email.
It is my goal to create a space you enjoy visiting that brings calm, inspiration, and motivation to reach your full potential and live a life of quality over quantity.
The one aspect of blogging that I like is that readers can stop by and read for free. The reason I am able to make this possible is by placing ads on the blog. Ad revenue is the primary source of income for TSLL as it enables projects to be invested in, books to be purchased and reviewed, the production of the podcast, trips and excursions, exploration with food and new recipes, the creation of the design and illustrations, and many other moving parts that a teaching salary alone would not support. However, I also understand that ads can be annoying, which is why we here at TSLL are working with the option of making an Ad-Free version of TSLL available.
While we are just beginning to design what will be offered, the most important part is that the blog remains exactly the same as you see it right now but sans (without) advertisements. How? Upon paying a small monthly subscription (much like Netflix or Amazon Prime), once you login in on one device (desktop, tablet, phone, etc.), you will experience an ad-free TSLL each time you visit (you will have to login on other devices for the ad-free version).
If you have additional comments for questions, feel free to leave them in the comments on this post or email me.
I appreciate your time, your voice and for those who have reached out to me with this request, thank you. I heard you, and I hope to bring you an experience that upon visiting TSLL each time brightens and enlivens your everydays.
