Poems that are not in The End of the Word as We Know It, by Wes Unruh

Technosigilic Magick or just plain SEO?

as much as I’d like to get The Art of Memetics available via Amazon, I don’t know that the sales figures would be worth the immense amount of effort that goes into self-publishing. I’ve already sunk several years into the book, and the meager .17 cents a day in google ad revenue doesn’t even cover my hosting costs

after months of dabbling with ads on various sites, I’ve become convinced that there’s issues with how most online ads work and have decided it’s probably significantly better overall to either create only links to people I know who’s work I support, or to people who pay me directly for specific types of work. I’m done with google adsense, it’s hardly ever brought in revenue, and it makes things look sloppy and cluttered

rather, I’m toying with directly contacting individuals I know and creating partnerships where appropriate. There’s not much time before I have to step away from the net entirely and focus on writings, so this next five month period will be dedicated to cleaning up my scattered online presence and condensing down ads as much as possible to those links to those individual sites where I’m supporting either friends or sites I enjoy who are able to provide better compensation than google

feel free to tell me how this makes you feel, if you care. Currently I’ve been able to develop some ads for the online book that take up significantly less space than the old google ads, and which will hopefully develop into an ongoing residual revenue stream that I can divert to Edward and I as compensation for the work we did on the text, cover the hosting costs, and support us as authors going forward
