Readers, I want a bit of input from you.

When I started this blog, I intended it to be wholly non-profit. And I still do. But fairly recently, these blogs now have the option to 'monetize', meaning that if I allow ads on this blog and if you readers click on the ads, then the blog makes a few cents or something.

But I started thinking. In my researches in the notables of the cemetery, I am often surprised and a bit saddened that many, many people are buried without headstones.

If I were to monetize the blog, it would be an opportunity to help put some new markers for those that are now forgotten.

I would appreciate any thoughts you have on this. Thanks!

Dear Mark,

I think monetzing for the sake of eadstone replacement is a GREAT IDEA. I am afraid that one of my ancestors may be one of those whose stone has disappeared because I have found hims nowhere in the indexes.
I say go for it and when the funds become available have a vote on the blog as to who to provide a stone for first.

I have no concern about monetizing. I do it on my blog and think viewers can ignore or click at their discretion.
