Porno Robot Monkeys and the Pop Up Window

I wanted to do something different when I started The Resurgent. In particular, I did not want to load up the site with a bunch of ad blocks that would turn into semi-pornographic click bait while writing ridiculous titles to try to draw people into reading while being inundated with pop-up windows.

By Erick Erickson

So I came up with a revenue model that I have seen work elsewhere, but has not even been tried in conservative media — that of sponsorships.

Essentially, one person, one campaign, one organization, or one cause sponsors The Resurgent for the week. They get the only ad blocks on the site, I write about them at the beginning and end of the week, that writing gets in the daily email, they get a bunch of clicks and I can fund the site. Those who have done so already have seen an increase in donations to their cause, an increase in membership, an increase in attention, etc.

On top of that, the ads are static graphics, so ad blockers are not going to block your ads. Every visitor is going to see the ads.

Likewise, they are funding good conservative voices and writing without having to subsidize click bait porn. Everybody wins. Contrary to some reports in the gutter of the internet, no donors have given me millions of dollars. All our revenue is from advertising. If you are a super rich conservative and want to send cash my way, I’m happy to take it though. Heh.

But I’ve been in the hospital and recovering and have no sponsors moving forward. If I cannot find sponsors or donors, the only way I’ll be able to keep the lights on is to go the route of porno robot monkeys and pop up windows with click bait titles and frivolous nonsense to lure you in. None of us want that.

So you’ve got two options. First, if you want to sponsor The Resurgent go here.

Second, if you want to help out without sponsoring, use the form below.

Otherwise, God help us all.
