Where We’re Going From Here

The die’s been cast.

Since this site has not generated enough income through ads or donations to cover expenses in keeping my site online, in another two weeks I’ll need to choose between going back to having a totally free-of-charge website or shutting it down.

While that might sound drastic, the vulgar ads that WordPress.com now places on free websites hosted with them brings down the quality of my site and I’m not interested in associating my site with these ads and certainly not subjecting you, my visitors, to them. (You can read more about this development on WPcomMaven.)

To ad (sic) insult to injury, WordPress.com recently removed the option to buy an annual “Add-On” to remove advertising. Now if I want to remove ads, I need to purchase an upgrade plan. Sorry, that’s not in my budget any longer.

On the bright side, I’ll have more knitting time now that the weather has finally cooled.

If donations don’t speak to you, and you’re in the market for some destash yarn, check out my current (and growing) offerings on Ravelry. Don’t limit yourself to the destash page. If you see something you absolutely need for a project on my regular stash page, ping me there (or here) and let’s make a deal. Don’t forget my books and magazines, too. Everything comes from a smoke and pet-free home.
