I’ve been dropping hints for months that you’ll soon have a way to help support our site monetarily, while in-return you’ll get something too. I’ve never been a fan of advertising, as I feel it takes away from the user experience and they can be quite intrusive. Plus, who doesn’t use AdBlock? On top of that unless you’re the New York Times or Huffington Post, you just don’t make anything from advertising. In 2015 I feel advertising is not worth my time and I don’t plan on pursuing any for the site. The plan is to keep it ad-free.
So far this site hasn’t made a dime and I’m perfectly okay with this. It was never about the money when starting it and hell I never thought I would reach this point with Country Perspective. I have lost a little money with the site (it’s not significant), as you know for upkeep, domain purposes and upgrades. On top of that I would love to see Derek and any future writers get compensated in some way for their work. That’s why I wanted to launch a Redbubble store. We get some compensation for our work and in-return you get something too. It’s a win-win! So today it’s officially open! You can visit our page here where our very first products are up for purchase right here. The plan was to have three different designs upon launch, but this one I wanted to get out right now:
I prefer to keep my shirts simple. You can buy this shirt in all sizes, men and women, as well as in various colors. In addition you can buy this slogan on stickers, phone cases/skins and drawstring bags in our store. So there are various products, low in price and higher in price, in which you can choose to support Country Perspective. There will be more designs added in the near future, so stay tuned.
Thank you so much in advance for supporting us and thank you for reading!
