When I decided to look into putting ads on the blog, I didn’t realize that WP.com has a policy against ads. Affiliate links are okay as long as the purpose of the site isn’t to drive traffic tot he affiliate links. But ads appear to be right out unless you have a VIP account. This may change in the near future, but for now there shall be no outside ads.
Since I’m linking the 3 column layout and I’ll have space for something over on the left, I came up with a different idea. The Social Justice Corner. Every month I will pick a social justice issue I sympathize with and put up a graphic and text about it on the sidebar. Like the Jena Six graphic a few posts down (but smaller). I’ll still blog about these issues whenever I like or they come up, but each month I’ll highlight one.
