First of all if you are reading this than we would like to take the time to say thank you. Just by visiting our website and checking out our content you are helping us. If you really want to help us on our adventure than please share what you like with other people. All you have to do is use the share button and we will have a warm feeling and know that you care about us. And for those of you who are are gung ho, please comment where ever you feel like it on the page. Tell us you love the content, tell us you hate the content, just tell us anything. Writing this stuff is kinda like talking to yourself in the mirror, you can see someone is there but all the words are coming from one side. Not that we are complaining or anything, I mean how many people get the chance to visit every state in the country. We are very grateful to everyone who gave us encouragement from the beginning and to everyone who has helped us along the way!
So we have put off putting any ads on the website because we personally don’t care much for advertisements. As we come up on our first year on the road anniversary though we realize that this adventure is going to take way longer than a single year to accomplish. We figure that it will take approximately three years to see the continental 48 states and then we somehow have to figure out Alaska and Hawaii. Amazon seemed the best way to monetize our website because people on the road appreciate buying things online and it wouldn’t cost anything extra for someone to click our links. Our website is now costing us a monthly fee in addition to hours and hours of labor, so it makes sense to put some marketing on it. We are not greedy and are definitely not trying to get rich off other people, but if someone likes our content and would like to support our endeavors then they can shop through Amazon within 24 hours of clicking a link and it helps us. Rather than putting a ton of ads all over the place, we will try to keep them minimal and relevant. I thought that affiliate marketing was better than just posting a Paypal link like this
although if someone wanted to just help us out then they could, but I like the idea of people helping us out while doing something they regularly do anyways. We will also add a few other affiliate marketing links that are products we stand behind and are relevant to our adventure. If you help us out know that we will appreciate it and you will be helping us with our dream.
And what post like this would be complete without a cute picture!
