Running BlenderNation takes a lot of time and energy (about 1-2 hours each day), and I need to make a bit of money to keep running it. If you enjoy BlenderNation and you think it's a valuable resource to the Blender community, please take a moment to read how you can be supporting BlenderNation financially - it doesn't need to cost you anything!
The most obvious way to generate some income for me is through banner advertisements. With the latest BlenderNation redesign, I took a lot of care to make the banners as unobtrusive as possible, and I review all banners each day to remove the crappy ones.
If you're using an AdBlocker like 50% of my readers, then please consider adding BlenderNation to your whitelist. It really does help.
