Blogspot/Google suggests placing AdSense advertisements in your blog. Google makes money, bloggers get a financial incentive to create content, the readers get more to read. It seems a win-win situation. I looked into it, both for this blog and some other blog-activities I have running. The end conclusion can only be, that this blog should not, and will not be commercial.

This blog basically runs on theoretical and practical material that is published by horn enthusiasts and professionals online all over the world. Some of the best stuff that's out there, has been around for 10 years or more and came out of a desire to simply share information and turn people on to an interesting hobby. These days, everything looks flashy and makes the owner money, without actually offering much. Well that's an exaggeration, but you get my point.

This blog wants to bring together good solid stuff, whether published here or elsewhere, and get some of that horny caring and sharing spirit back. So I dig up interesting horn theory and context from all kinds of sources and present them here.

So. Most of it isn't mine and I fondly remember the day when people shared their hobby for free. Could I make money off it? Of course not.

The Hornloudspeaker Magazine blog will remain AdSense-free. Not a statement against AdSense or commercial blogging at all, but in keeping with the spirit of this blog.
