Lately, I have had a rash of comments that, aside from the actual comment, include an embedded link to a commercial website or web-based business. Please be aware that I will always delete these comments.
Please, don't get me wrong, I love (!) comments. I partially base my self-worth on the comments that my posts generate (there's nothing like a good ego stroking). However, I have consciously decided that this blog will not be a commercial zone. So, if you want to advertise or make money, more power to you. Just don't use my blog as a platform for your personal venture.
I don't make money from my blog, so why the hell would I let you make money from my blog?
