Why Adverts in the first place?


Running a website is not free. There are many costs including:

  1. Hosting costs (Cost of hardware, bandwidth, and electricity)
  2. Annual domain registration fees (I use
  3. Email hosting (I use Microsoft 365)
  4. Legal costs (i use Termly to provide the privacy policy and terms and conditions)
  5. DDOS protection and caching (Provided by Cloudflare)
  6. Graphics software subscriptions (
  7. The time it takes to create content.

I initially added adverts to help cover these costs. However, I found that the adverts were distracting and detracted from the user experience. The ads did generate a reasonable amount of revenue (about half the cost of running the site), but I decided that the user experience was more important.

Did you find this content useful?

If you found this high quality content useful please consider supporting my work, so I can continue to create more content for you.

I give away all my content for free: Weekly video content on YouTube, 3d Printable designs, Programs and Code, Reviews and Project write-ups, but 98% of visitors don't give back, they simply read/watch, download and go. If everyone who reads or watches my content, who likes it, helps fund it just a little, my future would be more secure for years to come. A price of a cup of coffee is all I ask.
