A minuscule trickle of money flows my way from this blog’s Google AdWords and Amazon.com book referrals. In 2009, the revenue from those sources was about $100.
Were this blog a corporation it would be not-for-profit because my policy is to donate every dollar above the small blog operating cost to charity. I don’t reserve any revenue as compensation for the hours (and hours and hours) I put into the blog. What I do here is either related to my work, for which I’m already paid, or is recreation.
In response to the crisis in Haiti, this year’s charity is the Partners in Health Stand with Haiti campaign. Partners in Health is a Boston based non-profit organization dedicated “to care for our patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease in their communities, and to share lessons learned around the world,” including in Haiti.
