I Owe $28,000 in Medical Bills. I Need Some Sponsors.
That’s right. THIS IS NOT A GIMMICK. My appendix surgery has really amassed a medical bill of over $28,000. Sadly, I don’t have health insurance. But this isn’t about not qualifying for insurance or anything like that. It’s about me needing to pay that bill, or better said, those bills because it’s more than one. They are all piled up on my dinning room table, collecting dust until I can pay them slowly. Or at all. I’m not just sitting on my butt all day not doing anything. I’ve had to recently get a dreaded 9 to 5. Just thinking of that hurts. But it’s not enough.
Google recently shut my Adsense account down too. I have not heard from them as to why (not holding my breath there). That’s a lost cause. I was relying on those checks to be able to pay the medical bills. I have tried various ways to generate some good revenue from the site but I can’t seem to anymore. It’s as if I lost my mojo. I tried Adbrite, Yahoo Publisher Network, and now PepperJam and Amazon. Adbrite was dismal. Yahoo netted me $0! I am hoping PepperJam and Amazon can start an upward trend.
What’s so frustrating is that I have some good traffic and readership. It’s just not working. I have implemented several things, affiliate offers, etc, etc, etc. I have direct ads available. This is one top of the line blog we are talking about here folks. It just doesn’t work as well as it should.
I have even dropped the advertising prices down a substantial amount. No takers. I have been mentioned on some prominent blogs. Folks should at least have heard of the site since I have tried hard to brand it. I have done a ton of hard work on my end. Doesn’t it show?
I will even consider taking a coupe of sponsors. Similar to NASCAR in which they become the sole sponsors of the site. I am open to anything folks, anything. I need to pay that $28,000 before they start ruining my life. Maybe even Oprah could save the day. Speaking of which, if you all can do anything that’ll get this any attention and in front of the right people, please do. You can use the little “Share” widget at the bottom of this post to share this with friends, i.e. Stumble Upon, Digg, Technorati, Send this Post Via Email, and a few other options.
Thank you in advance. That would rock.
