Patriot Retort has been in existence for a little over three years now. And in that time, this has remained an ad-free site.
As much as I would love to stay that way, since January of 2017, that has become increasingly difficult for me.
Some of you may already know, but in January of last year, I was the target of several DDoS attacks that crashed my site. To prevent this in the future, my web host required that I sign up for security – which I dutifully did.
And, not to put too fine a point on it, it’s kind of expensive. Although reader contributions have helped offset this expense, it still is hard to meet my obligation.
So beginning tomorrow, April 11, Patriot Retort will have advertising that appears on the site.
My first priority has always been to provide you with the very best content I can dream up in an enjoyable environment. And I don’t want the ads to get in the way of that.
So unlike some sites that are crammed with so many ads, you can barely suffer through reading a post, the ads that appear at Patriot Retort will be limited to one in the sidebar and one at the end of each post.
Any old how. Because of my commitment to you guys, I wanted to give you a heads up to this change.
I am deeply grateful to all of my readers. And your generous contributions always fill me with such gratitude and appreciation. The decision to place ads here is about making sure that I can afford to keep Patriot Retort going for you as much as for me.
My goal has been to grow this site’s audience and reach. And, even despite that pesky Lupus, to continue to provide you with the commentary and satire you’ve come to expect.
And that won’t ever change.
