Just to be upfront, this is a smalltime blog. I share my ideas, thoughts, and walkthroughs of various technologies. My interests are in APIs, the Raspberry Pi, being as frugal with our data and time as many of us are with money... and whatever I happen to stumble across in a given week.
Here's a few samples of my writing. I can be opinionated, but don't post overly controversial pieces.. nothing I wouldn't want my kids reading.

I don't currently promote my site on social media (though I used Twitter in the past), nor do I currently have a newsletter (I did, and may again). I'm not particularly adverse to either; I just haven't put the time into them. Any growth I've experienced over the years has been primarily organic, from visitors finding the content useful.
Those stats are from Fathom Analytics, a visitor-friendly alternative to Google Analytics. I compared the data for several months before cutting over, and they're comparable. Actually, Fathom honors Do Not Track requests, so if anything the numbers are probably a little low.

- Most weekdays see about 300-350 unique visitors and 350-400 page views.
There are two spots I'd be willing to place ads. The first is in a sponsor "bar" at the top of the page. It'll show up on the front page and on every post. I can make the entire bar link to a URL of your choice, preferably your homepage or a page describing your product.
The second is in the sidebar, which also shows up on the front page and every post. I have a couple products that stay there because I believe they're that useful. If you have a company or product logo and a short tag line, I can display those at the top of that list.
All of this is a discussion to be had though. I reserve the right to not accept sponsorship for a product or service that I do not agree with, or would not recommend to a friend or colleague. And you, of course, reserve the right to back out of sponsorship as you'd like.
If yours is a product or service that I find personally useful, I may write about it just in the natural course of things. If you'd like me to try it out and write about it, we can discuss terms around that as well - I enjoy learning, understanding, and sharing with others.
