I guess I should feel honored that I'm being targeted by the same type of skeezers that Gawker and other websites are, but in all honesty I'd rather keep my blog ad free. (And by ad free, I mean, aside from promoting the stuff I like and being paid for it not at all. If people want to know how I make my money (HA!) they can order an art piece, or even just throw some coin into the donation jar for a treat thank you gift. (Possibly involving nudity, but whatev's.)
