A little while back, I proposed to run social ads on blogs and to donate the revenue. This, it seemed, would be the easiest way to raise some funds and to donate money, paying with your attention. Eyeballs for money, the usual model for ads, applied in a social way. Here’s the ad I put on my blog. Every time someone clicked the ad, some money came in through Google Adsense:
Of course the deal is still on: Click the ad, I’ll donate for a good cause.
Not too many people clicked, but those of you who did raised $9.55. Not huge, but not so bad for just a few clicks, eh?
So this time, a round $10
will go went to the Electronic Frontier Foundation to help protect bloggers rights and our privacy. The money raised in August will go to Stiftung Bridge (“Bridge Foundation”), a German non-profit that fights for digital rights by supporting small projects.
Thanks a lot, all of you. And please consider doing the same thing.
