Fire, Juggling, and Monday Artday

This is Boom-Boom, sword-swallowing, juggling, and tightrope-walking over fire. I sometimes feel like her as I go about my life of home-maker, husband, dad, webmaster for California State University, and squeezing in art, blogging, and Monday Artday.

I just got an email from a marketing company proposing advertising on this site. I looked them up - they promote online poker. Hoo-boy. I've made the decision not to advertise on this site. Maybe one day I'll offer some Monday Artday-specific products but I think I can keep the site looking more friendly and fun by not littering it with google ads and gambling sites. I'll find another way to make that 10 or 20 dollars a month. Really, the satisfaction of knowing that artists are coming here to inspire and be inspired is payment enough.

Rock on, artists!

Good for you, Mike. Although a certain amount of gambling does support my $600 a day heroin habit, it does not belong on an art blog. Gambling is evil, but smoking makes you look cool and grown up.

Wow! That is a lot to juggle. I hope you manage it as coolly as Boom Boom seems to do.
