One of the problems with writing entries that piss off a big portion of the online community is that you draw a ton of people to your site. That little diabetic stint along with pissing off most of the chain pharmacists pushed my web hosting bill through the roof. Yeah, I’m a pharmacist. Yeah, I make “a lot” of money. However when a website starts to chip more and more away at your income, you need to stem the bleeding eventually.
I mean I love the attention and all and its sorta neat to be such a famous-yet-totally-unknown pharmacist, however love doesn’t pay the bills. So, to keep me ranting and out of the poor house, I put google ads on the sidebar over there ——-> They are stupid, text only, and actually have things to do with pharmacy (go figure). Click on them if you’re interested, if not then just ignore them.
I don’t rant because I want the ad money, I dont rant for the attention or the notoriety, I rant because it keeps me sane, and it shows other pharmacists (and students) out there that you’re not alone in dealing with the cesspool of stupidity known as the ‘general public’.
So I hope you don’t view this as me selling-out or cashing in. I’m just trying to keep my head above water for something that I love doing and preventing me from becoming a raging alcoholic puppy-kicker.
Oh, and I don’t really have any control over the ads they show, so if you see any for online pharmacies or mail order places, remember that they are paying for ads while I am receiving money for ads. I still hate online and mail-order places.
