Support Anthropology Blogs

Running a quality anthropology blog, like the ones listed at the Anthropology Blogs, takes a lot of time. While many of these blogs draw on free platforms, some of the best are on self-hosted sites.

One way to support anthropology blogs is to make a contribution to keep anthropology resources online, updated, and accessible.

Please note that contributions are not tax-deductible. All contributions go directly to promote Living Anthropologically and support anthropology blogs. I sometimes use Google Ad-Words buys to highlight real anthropological analysis, which can get lost in generic searches. I also use Twitter or Linked-In ads to increase the number of likes and visits. If there is a specific theme you would like your contribution to support, or a specific regional focus, please let me know.

In the early days of Facebook, I used Facebook ads to build a successful following of over 20,000 likes for Living Anthropologically. However, in light of the Facebook data-mining fiasc, I no longer use Facebook ads. I am also limiting any use of Facebook to posts that link to support anthropology blogs–outside of Facebook.

Very grateful too for all the traditional web methods: the tweets, likes, and other social shares. Another way to support anthropology blogs is by reviewing books on Amazon and editing Wikipedia, as recommended in Editing Wikipedia > Writing Letters to the New York Times.

Support Anthropology Blogs: Ads & Affiliates

Through early 2018 I funded web hosting through the use of Google ads. From May 2018 through May 2020 I discontinued using Google ads, hoping to make the reading experience better and with faster loading times. However, in June 2020 I returned to using Google ads–with the uncertainties of Coronavirus & Academia, I’m looking for alternative ways to fund the blog.

I am an affiliate for Amazon and keep using links to their site, as I think Amazon is a potentially important way to promote anthropology books, such as my co-authored 2015 book Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
