Want To Advertise On AdviceGoddess.com?
Officially, there is no advertising on my site. I pay (close to $500 a year, if not more) to maintain my site and my blog so I can put up my thoughts on relationships and socially relevant issues. Period. The contributions I get from Paypal and Amazon and the occasional 5% I get when somebody buys a book through my book links page don't even begin to cover the cost.

Which brings us to the point: I should be preparing for my radio appearance tonight, but I came home to a giant spam attack, and I just deleted about 100 blog comments spam. The spam attack continues as I write this, with me intermittently deleting the vandalism.

If you're a filthy vandal, posting stuff with a commercial link in it on my blog to further your link share on Google, so you can sell more penis pills or separate more fools and their money with your auto loans, just to name a few; please be advised of the cost of doing so: $4,995 per entry, starting immediately, which would be 2:52pm, Sunday, May 2. Oh, and there's nothing that would please me more than to drag your sleazy spamming ass to small claims court and sue you blind for the money. I've got my eye on a company in Michigan; a company whose perps forgot to hide their real corporate identity and contact information well enough on the site I went to from their spam link. Hmmm, visit the folks in Detroit/siphon a downpayment on a Honda Insight out of some sleazebags. Cool!

Journalspace only costs $24 per yr and I never get spam in the blog comments...except for those little things at the bottom, which I guess is the price for getting them free thru Haloscan.

I could do just journalspace, but I have a multi-page site, so I have to have a server company with MSQUL, etc. and enough bandwith. You get spam in the BOTTOM? You mean spam as comments or spam within the graphic portion of your comments section?

why don't you go to a free blog like xanga or blog-city?

SIgh...Lauren, I hate to point out the obvious, but there's a pretty enormous site attached to this blog, and I have my own address and server company (Voicegateway.com, which I HIGHLY recommend -- they're nice and they're good and address problems fast). Anyway, I don't want to have my address be xanga.advicegoddess.com -- moreover, those sites get spam, too. My boyfriend's going to install James Seng's plug-in on my blog, and every time you post here, you'll have to type in a varying security code (available within the posting space) to prove that you're a human, not a spam bot.
