A Change and a Promise

I’ve said it before, but I started the Deja Reviewer website in 2011 purely as an outlet for my creativity. I wanted a way to share my ideas with the world, so creating and maintaining this site has been just as fun for me as it has been for everyone who enjoys my work.

Seven years and more than 400 articles later, I’m finally making a significant change.

I’ve had ads on the site for years, which have yielded just a tiny amount of money to me, but now I’m starting to include Amazon ads and PayPal donation icons in the body of some of my articles in order to hopefully generate a modest income. I’ve only added them to about a half-dozen articles so far, so you probably haven’t even noticed yet.

I didn’t create the Deja Reviewer to make money. It’s always just been for fun, so this is new territory for me.

I’ll make a promise to you. This will change nothing about the way I approach films and analyze them. I won’t praise films I despise to earn a buck or act phony in any way. I’ll just keep giving my honest opinions and insights like I always have. If you read through a film review and decide it sounds really fascinating to the point that you would like to watch the film, I’ll try to provide a link you can click to buy it. And if you want to support the site directly because you like the content, you can donate $5.00 via PayPal by clicking on an icon that will appear at the end of my articles moving forward. If you don’t care to do either of those things, that’s perfectly fine, too.

I always want to be honest and upfront about my intentions. If I can earn money for providing value, I’ll be happy to do it. Thank you to everyone who enjoys what I have to offer week after week. I get a lot of satisfaction out of giving you new ways to appreciate films that are already near and dear to your heart. So I already feel well paid for my contributions.

This is the Deja Reviewer bidding you farewell until we meet again.

  1. If I were you I would not do Google ads – Amazon affiliate ads would be a better fit.

    You write about movies and media. People are going to want to buy the movies you write about, and if they see an ad in the sidebar for the movie they will probably click it and buy something.

    BTW, I just got rid of most of the ads on my blog because Adsnese didn’t pay enough to be worth the aggravation. The one ad I kept was an Amazon affiliate ad because it paid so much more than the several Adsense ad units
