Thanks so much for visiting Food, Fun & Faraway Places!
Do you have a general question about something you read, a recipe, or a destination? Feel free to email me (Kelly) at email@example.com.
When I started this blog, I had no idea what running a blog, or a business, was like. Though I had been a stockbroker B.K. (before kids!) and helped people who owned businesses invest their money, I had never run a business on my own. It's actually a crazy amount of work, but I love (almost) every minute of it!
There are a lot of expenses involved in running a business, and a blog is no different. I was a freelance writer for years when my kids were little, but when it comes to coding and technical issues, I'm pretty much lost. When you see something wonky on my site, I'm frantically contacting my web developer to fix it, and that costs money.
There is also cost for hosting and design and so much more. Not to bore you, but that is why I have ads on my site. The pennies I make on ads helps support my business. However, if you ever look at my site and think there are too many ads, please let me know! I don't always realize it, and never want it to interfere with your experience here.
Without my readers, I have no business. Thanks for understanding.
