12 months: $350

If you have special requests for ad placements feel free to contact me and I will work with you. There is no setup fee and I also offer additional discounts if purchasing more than 10 ads.

The fine print:

As owner and administrator of I agree to display the text ads provided at the end of the main page content on the indicated pages in a box labeled “Sponsored Links”. The ad will be placed starting within five business days of receipt of payment (via PayPal) and continuing for the period of time purchased. While I give no guarantee of continuation after the ad period I will likely offer a continuation at the same, or only slightly increased rate.

Each ad may be up to 500 characters in length (about 70 words.) Ads may be changed up to 3 times (not including initial setup and minor changes such as correcting typos) within the ad term but all ads are subject to my approval.

In exchange for these services the advertiser will pay the agreed upon rate to the PayPal account unless another payment method has been determined. The advertiser or I may cancel any ad at any time during the ad term. If the ad is canceled by either party at any time a refund will be made equivalent to the amount of time remaining on the ad.

Your text ad, including links to your site will display in a box like this. Each ad is limited to 500 characters which is about 70 words, but that is quite a bit of text. As an example, this ad is only 222 characters long.
