Bait and Switch

Here's the bait: Photos and videos of Natalie (here's one of her with a little pink barrette in her hair taken by Lisa in April). Doesn't she look like a little girl in this pic? What a cutie. And well worth logging in to her blog at least 2 or 3 times everyday, right?

And here's the switch: Once you are hooked on this site, you'll notice we have added Google ads to this blog (see way bottom right). That's right, we are shamelessly exploiting our daughter. We got this idea from other "mommy bloggers" who claim they have stopped working because of all the money coming in from ads placed on their blogs. So, we decided to go for it. The result? So far this week we have earned ...*drum roll* ... 10 whole cents (that's US dollars)! Google pays only when total earnings reach over $100.00, so if we keep this up, in another 100 weeks (approximately 2 years) we'll get paid! So please visit more often and all moneys collected will go towards Natalie's college fund. Thanks for visiting!

Note: Clark would like to point out that the term "Bait and Switch" is technically incorrect. He says it is inaccurate because we aren't baiting and we aren't switching anything. Personally, I think the "bait" (a.k.a. motivation) are photos and videos of a little cutie patootie (a.k.a. Natalie). The "switch" comes when you scroll down and are suddenly and unexpectedly confronted with Google ads. This point is still being debated at time of publication.
