A good friend of mine recently scolded me for not monetizing this site. Okay, so he didn’t actually scold me, but he brought up a valid point. Websites cost money to operate, and this site is driving a lot of traffic to companies like DoorDash and GrubHub. “The least they could do is chip in to cover your costs”, he said.
So I caved and today I’m placing a single ad for DoorDash on the website. It is a pop-up ad (Lord forgive me) but once you have dismissed it you will not see it again for 30 days. Hopefully this minor nuisance will not upset anyone.
I’m looking into affiliate links in the future, which would be less obtrusive. If that works out then I can get rid of the pop-up altogether.
