In mid-January, I moved my blog from WordPress.com, a free service, to a host that costs me $60 a year. And the domain name (umflight.com) costs $10 a year.
Sadly, I am adding ads to umFlight to pay for hosting, the domain name and other costs related to running umFlight. This will put more money into my RC budget, allowing me to review more planes and possibly do some experiments (the planes may or not survive!). If I make extra, this will also allow me to get even more review and experimental aircraft along with parts for builds to share on umFlight. Of course, sharing my builds depends on if I ever get a successful build!
However, I hate websites that have lots of ads like many others do. So that’s why I’m only putting one banner ad on the top of the home page, right below the title. It should be approved by Google soon. umFlight will NOT become a place for thousands of ads! Because, like many of you, I hate too many ads that make the user experience bad, I am not planning on adding more than a couple of ads per page or the least amount necessary to make enough money to keep umFlight thriving.
Thanks for understanding and for reading umFlight!
