So my site should be able to generate $4800/month?  That would be nice!

I'm sure it could...if you whored it out to every sleazy advertiser out there. Fortunately you have standards.

Yeah, he only whores out to one!



(sorry, couldn't help it RoG, I enjoy your blog minus the P.C. plugs)

Even with the PC plugs, I like RoG. I mostly ignore them, yet enjoy the pretty graphs.

Ha ha, just barely ;)

I've had some call my site "overloaded with ads and a blatant attempt to maximize revenue" while others question how it's possible that I can make anything off of it given the lack of advertising (the latter group probably have ad block plus installed like me). 

I do turn down private advertisers that want me to publish an article and link to their site, and similar types of "opportunities".  If I ever need some cash I can always turn up the sleaze factor...

No hard feelings - I actually like the free expense tracking and investment tracking they offer, and figure it could be helpful for a lot of folks.    It certainly saves me a bunch of time whether I need a quick look at recent transaction activity, or a full dump of all my investment holdings. 

My advertising account rep tries to get me to push other services, but I won't unless it's a product/service/retailer I know about and approve of.

"For me, it is actually very pleasant to give up earning opportunities and I do it every day. Forget piddly software stuff.. recently I got the chance to turn down a couple of seven-figure offers for this blog! Doing so makes me appreciate my real life even more, because it reminds me not to worry about money."
Screw the money, he'd object to the new owners asking him to stay around for a three-year earnout.  I can only imagine his response when they'd ask him to tone down his commentary or endorse a few of their recommended products...

I read what Jim Wang and J.D. Roth write, but I no longer read Bargaineering or Get Rich Slowly.  It's the writer, not the blog.
