After a great run of more than nine years, TinkersGardens.com has reach an financial impasse requiring some major changes in our business.
We have secured hosting with a company that should protect our financial viability for many years to come. But despite our hard work to make the site the best we can, and steadily increasing traffic, our monthly ad revenues continue to falter. I don’t believe this to be because of any fault of our own, but because many of our users utilize plug-ins/add-ons such as AdBlock Plus. This is an excellent plugin and does exactly what one would expect it to do, but a side effect of this nifty little plug-in is that companies like TinkersGardens.com who have chosen to subsist solely on the money made through advertising are finding it increasingly difficult to manage on the meager funds that have been trickling in over the past two years since the proliferation of AdBlock Plus and it’s like.
One of the best features of AdBlock Plus is that the user is able to disable the plug-in on a per-site basis. We sincerely beg that you would consider allowing the few ads that we show on our site, and that from time to time you’d visit our advertisers. Your support in this area will help to secure the future viability of TinkersGardens.com and DaylilyDB.com.
Humbly we remain truly yours,
Donald and Jason
