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.
