Please Help Support this Guide: When I had to find a way to support my website I had 2 choices. I could use modern advertising technology like most sites use with pay-per-click ads all over my pages and spy-ware that collects information and posts the ads each individual reader is most likely to click on. Or I could choose to promote a handful of travel agents, and a reliable hotel booking system and keep my sites relatively ad free. No obnoxious pop-ups, fake news articles, or gathering of information through cookies. I chose the second. But it was risky. My ability to support myself would depend on the success of the travel agents and hotels on my website and for 24 years this worked. But then came COVID-19 and the bookings stopped. I could join the crowd and place pay-per-click ads on every page of my site as a temporary measure to generate some income. But to be honest I think it ruins even the best websites. And to install technology that spies on my readers seems like a betrayal even though pretty much everybody does it. So instead I ask you readers who enjoy my sites if you can send a donation through Paypal any amount is helpful. If you prefer to send a check you can email me. Thank you for your support!
