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. In February 2018, the gradhacker post by Brady Krien summarizes some of the work needed to build an academic website: Where to Begin With Building a Website.

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 use Facebook 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.

Very grateful too for all the traditional web methods: the tweets, Facebook 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

At the moment, Living Anthropologically is able to fund web hosting through the use of Google Ads. I also am an affiliate for Amazon.

Another interesting option I’ve used is Flattr. I first learned about Flattr via Blogging, Extinction, and Sustainability in the Chronicle of Higher Education. The article makes some good points about academic blogging.

Please consider contributing to Living Anthropologically. Contributions fund ads to bring anthropology to public debates. Not tax-deductible. For more information, see Support Living Anthropologically.
