As a reader of MountainRunner, you’ve no doubt noticed I don’t do ads or tip jars. Instead of overt links to other business that waste screen real estate or straight donations to my wallet, I rely on click-thru’s to Amazon.com to pay for this blog and ConflictWiki (to-be reincarnated soon with different and more user-friendly software that’s not Wiki-based… let that be a lesson in name choice).
Advantages of using Amazon to support MountainRunner:
- You buy stuff you would be buying already but a percentage gets kicked-back to me, with no change in cost to you
- They send me gift certificates to buy stuff at Amazon, which in turn feeds my habit of, er, killing trees. The cash offset pays for the website.
How to transparently support MountainRunner without any cost to you:
- Go to Amazon.com via any book review, reference to a book, or (as is often the case) a book author and buy that book or anything else Amazon sells.
- Buy text books for the coming academic year by going to Amazon through this link.
Neither the blog nor myself are affiliated or supported by any institution or organization, including my graduate degree program. Hopefully this will change when I complete my degree in December ’07…
Thank you in advance for your support.
