I just put this on my blog at jaysays.com, perhaps together we can cost these hate folk their money. Curious as to your thoughts on this.

As a blogger, I use Goggle AdSense to help offset the costs of webhosting and my time (granted I make about a penny per hour using this route). AdSense allows you to use competitive ad filtering so competitor’s ads do not show up on your website; however, I often find myself playing a game of chase to keep ads from companies and programs that discriminate against LGBT people from appearing on jaysays.com.

I recently noticed that ads for the Yes on 8 campaign from the Protect Family people were showing up on my website as well as some for “conversion therapy”. I was mortified and immediately ran over to google to filter their ads from appearing here. The rat race continues. Since I’m normally accessing my site’s back-end and rarely pay much attention to the ads being displayed, its possible ads I don’t want to appear will appear - or do I want them to appear after all?

I found a way which we, the LGBT community can hit the companies in their wallets by making them pay us, the gay bloggers, and google. Most ads are pay for impression or pay per click type ads. Therefore, I decided we as a community should actively seek out these ads online, particularly ads placed on LGBT friendly websites that are from discriminatory companies and get click happy with them. Each time an LGBT person clicks on these ads, the advertiser has to pay for that click - in same cases I get $0.36 for a click - Google takes a portion too. The click thus costs at least $0.36. Now imagine we get click happy… click click click 100, 200, 300 times amongst many many people - we could cost them a small fortune. It costs us a little time, but we take from their advertising budget and give the money to those people they are preaching against (LGBT bloggers). We can clean up their “blood money”.

Hey there. My blog lives in many places, but it starts at http://slicesofmylifebethmitchum.blogspot.com and uploads to Facebook and my Amazon Author Profile. I have several websites too, some of which will eventually get reconnected to my blog:

bethmitchum.com
bookshopwithoutborders.com
mysticangelhealing.org
ultravioletlove.com

@Susan - Thanks for your comment. Facebook initially kicked me off because they said I was a business and not an individual. They also could not comprehend that an individual actually goes by the name of Steadycat. They didn't really care that they were wrong. They have blocked my blogging email address so I can't sign back on. I don't feel like dealing with them this month but will come up with a plan in january.

Okay this has nothing to do with ANYTHING we have been talking about... but I REALLY wish we didn't have word limits on our emails! I am sure there is a very good, sane reason for it, but some of us LIKE to chat and are kinda...long winded (Just talking about myself here people!)

Love ya Morwen! I check your blog out, I like the War on Christmas, good stuff sweetie! SteadyCat (nice graphics BTW), why did you get kicked off Facebook? I didn't even know that was possible? Uh-oh...Maybe I am next!!!!

Annti- I hope you are feeling better, girl. I feel for ya. I love The Mark of the Beast Blog....is that weird?
My Thanksgiving so messed up. My husband's fam. thinks I am a bit of a freak. We had to do the "extended family" thing. I don't eat meat, so they think that is even weirder!!!! As per usual, they look at my husband with pity whenever I speak. My fam is all gone save for aunt. She is great, but has her own issues. (Long story, can email u about it if you want to know).
But, mostly I made the basics, Cheesy potatoes, green bean cassarole, mushroom gravy....and yes my friend....I made Tofurkey.....don't hate me.

I also made butterscotch spice cookies....YUMMY!!!!!

Since you can't enjoy the fruit of the vine, I had an extra glass in your honor! (Made the in-laws go down easier too! )

Take care all, love to everyone and their furry babies!!!

I'm just the lonely blogger that got kicked off of facebook. I'm nearly done with the drama. One more day should do it.

Susan, I'm the evil Trans woman from Hell. And damn proud of it.

P.S. Sorry that I haven't answered your e-mails yet, Susan, I'm having to log-off shortly, after having visited my blog & World O'Crap (see new member Scott C.! Coolest doood in Cali!), the spine & pelvis hate my fucking guts tonight. But since I'll be largely horizontal tomorrow (I *might* do dishes, I might not...), I should be able to tend to my correspondence like a proper adult. We can hope, anyway... XOXOXO
J/ASC

BTW, thanks for coming by & shooting the shit with us on the blog! Come back when you can, and bring yer buds & kittehs & puppies too!
Comment by Anntichrist S. Coulter on November 26, 2008 at 11:40pm
Well thank ya honey, and if I could do the road trip, I'd be there!

And no, I will be happily wrapped-up in the cocoon of my comfy bed, watching "Big Bear" (all 3 tapes!), petting teh puddy-tats, and gorging on gingerbread cookies and hot cocoa, I will NOT be indulging in TEH DRAMA of teh fucktards over at THEIR house.

BTW, as I was 15 when I had the car wreck, and 9 days in ICU, they made DAMNED SURE that my wrecked car was DESTROYED at the junkyard, after their precious son stole my stereo & speakers, and all evidence of the cut brake line LONG GONE before I even make it out of the hospital, so all I have to PROVE IT is my very clear memory of the event and nobody will climb inside my head to verify the forensics, dammit.

Wouldn't CSI be even skeerier if they COULD?!?!?!? Big Bruddah is watching youuuuuu... And remember, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out to get you.

I'll spare the group the gory details of WHY their precious son-king Louis XIV would cut the brakes on my car, or why the alleged sperm-donor (I still want a DNA test on my "dad") would COVER IT UP FOR HIM, but suffice it to say, the fact that Louis XIV isn't in prison is due only to the fact that A WOMAN'S LIFE AIN'T WORTH SHIT IN THE 13TH-CENTURY STATE OF LOUISIANA. In other words, just TRY to get a cop to do his job, even when the law SAYS THAT CHARGES MUST BE PRESSED IN THOSE KINDS OF CRIMES.

Ugh. Too much ugly shit.

Whatcha gonna cook? I miss wine, I miss booze... Remind me to bitch later about the fucking FDA/DEA clusterfuck that renders all pain meds POISONOUS and utterly WITHOUT EVEN THE POSSIBILITY OF ENJOYMENT for those of us with spinal-injury & autoimmune-disorder long-term pain issues. Oh, how I long for those naive days of being a guinea pig for oxys and hanging out at the Dragon's Den, where the lovely bartenderesses always overpoured, back when the break was fresh and the drugs still WORKED.

Anyway, your turn, tell me something yummy!
