To Whore Or Not To Whore

The blogging revolution continues unabated. Friend and colleague Hope Senechal has launched PureHope.com, a site dedicated to parenting advice. Hope has clued me in to the possibilities of funding one’s blog through advertising. As you’ve no doubt noticed, this site has long featured a tiny Google Adsense ad in the corner, from which I have earned a grand total of 12 cents. Well, you can now see that I’ve expanded the Google Adsense presence on this site and have added direct advertising for books on Amazon.ca. I don’t think it detracts much from the aesthetics of this blog. And indeed, I have certainly purchased books through Amazon.ca before, so have no moral qualms about encouraging literacy among my readers. Before this day is up, I will also provide Amazon links for my own books, since God knows I need to make a buck.

In light of this development, I proudly announce the publication of Opposing Viewpoints: Popular Culture, an American educational text from the popular Opposing Viewpoints series. This issue features my essay on “Why I Love Professional Wrestling.”
