Call me what you will, me and my blog (this one that you're reading right now- for the window licking- quotient of my fanbase) , got a mention in an article in this week's Citypaper (one of two Philly weeklies with big circulations).
The article is called Pay Up. It was written by the fabulous Valerie Rubinsky and it lets people of the blogging persuasion know that the city of Philadelphia may want to TAX you if a blog you write, happens to make any money off of banner ads and the like that are embedded on your blog. So after Google gets a cut from adsense ( my tally so far, just over 11 dollars in two years), you could be a target depending on how much of a business your particular blog is. My definition of "business", and probably that of many other Philly based bloggers, is different than that of the city of Philadelphia, apparently.

Circle of Fits is a labor of love for the most part. I re-launched it in Sept. 2008 as therapy...as a project that could allow me to reconnect to a long dormant creative writing/ side of my life trapped under years of doubt, loss and laziness...and inspired into fruition by the snapshots of the last year of my late sister's life. I used music as a touchpoint/ launchpad, because it inhabits a huge part of my battered soul and it stirs up so many emotions. It lights my fuse, burns my candle and leaves a scar.
I never expected Circle of Fits to "make money" or be deemed a "business". The only business I incorporate into this site is mine, not yours. Its none of your business, but all of your business. I put ads on it as an experiment, and I don't ever expect anyone to click on them..I don't even know how to put the time in to learn how to control which ones are being presented...i.e. There is an ad for a website called everybodyloveshiphop.com that makes an appearance from time to time. This pisses me off to the tenth power of evil..most of my readers know I despise hip- hop and proclaim it as one of the major contributors to the decline of civilization. So there. Do you think anyone would want to advertise with Circle of Fits after a statement like that???? Naw...shit..there's a new ad shown before movie previews with hooded hip hop Hamsters trying to sell you a Kia Soul car...makes me puke popcorn into my mouth... So I wear that happy hatred on my sleeve and don't intend to cash in from this here blog..... I hope to inspire and infuriate equally...because when the day is done...all I want is conversation .....
