As from last May (2012), blog.davidvassallo.me was approved to show “WordAds”. You notice that each page and article displays an advert. This generates a small revenue (about $4 a month). Seeing as that my blog is mostly about linux and other open source projects, I decided on using this revenue to donate it back to an open source project, minus the money needed for hosting (give or take about $20 a year).
I would like to donate the money to a project which is chosen by my readers, so on the blog homepage you will notice a poll giving you a selection of project which you think the money should go to.
The money only gets paid out once it reaches $100 dollars, so this won’t be very regular or frequent, but it’s my way of contributing something back. After every payout I will cycle the selection of projects on the poll to contribute to.
If you know of, or are a developer of an open source project that I can review, please contact me via this form, and I will gladly try the project out and include it in the next cycle of polls.
Thank you all!
