Not For Sale

Filed under: Random — Robert John Ed @ 12:56 am

Craphammer is not for sale. Either is Hee-Haw. In fact, tons of blogs aren’t serving advertising or affiliate links (save possibly their own works). They haven’t been from day one. And they continue to do their thing without reservation or permission from anyone with a hand in their pocket. They do it because they like their subject matter and enjoy writing about it. Below is an image from Craphammer being used to display independance:

I don’t plan to either, but I don’t think a badge is necessary to denote that. Here is Hee-Haw’s:

There are a ton of other blogs doing the same thing, just check out the link to see some more.

People can smell ads from a mile away. I’m not going to tell other people what to do…but it seems pretty counterintuitive to advertise how you don’t advertise.

  2. Sean, the badges are creative. Still am not sure about the need for them though. :-)
