Use only if it speaks to you…

viva la revolution!
(the server was down temporarily, but it is back now. hopefully.)
(p.s. For those of you who are “disappointed”, I see this as no different than what magazines like the Sun, Adbusters, and Ms. have done. Many people wrote me about using the icon, and so I have provided it for them to use.)

Mel,
Thank you for your comment. I agree with your point and have removed #3 from the statement. It is not my intention to judge people, I was not thinking about the implication when I wrote it. As you can see I am still ‘finding my way’ with this. Wording is VERY important. The project will evolve, (just as I am.)
Kay,
I urge you to reread my comment on the issue, This is NOT a personal attack on anyone who chooses to have ads on their site. Many of my good friends have ads, they do not take this as a personal attack, (merely a difference of opinion). I just want to make a statement about my work. I see my blog as an art piece, no different than a painting or a sculpture.
I certainly would not like advertising on one of my paintings.
I do not judge those who choose to have ads on their site.

thank you so much for that daphne. i hesitated writing that heading. i’ve never done something like this before, i have always done things that people approve of (read: everyone). this has greater meaning for me, it is teaching me to be stronger. i don’t know why i am being called to do it, but i must follow it. it is hard to just be o.k. with people being upset by my actions.
