Kevin in Liberia

Its Purpose: to raise awareness of current social, political, ethical, and spiritual issues within a relief and development context in Liberia. Its effectiveness is simple: It relies on me, the author, to provide insightful, and often debate-sparking material that will encourage you, the reader to get engaged through comment contributions, emails, and promoting others to read, re-think, and respond to the important issues discussed.

I know not which is most profitable to me, health or sickness, wealth or poverty, nor anything else in the world. That discernment is beyond the power of men or angels, and is hidden among the secrets of your Providence, which I adore, but do not seek to fathom. ~ a prayer by Blaise Pascal

Things You'll Find on Monrovia's Beaches - "Poo Poo"

As disturbing as it is, its a reality. Many Liberians opt to go "poo poo" on beautiful beaches such as Fisher's Point. Most latrine-building projects are focused in more rural areas of Liberia but I would beg to suggest that parts of Monrovia are just as needing of latrines as some of the people in the bush. For some reason, the beach is a very popular spot for one to do one's business. On my walk down to Fisher's Point I witnessed two people going "poo poo" and many other remnants of business done in the past. Its a sad and disgusting reality for some people here in Monrovia, a reality that all of us have to deal with.

    Dump the google ad sense .... You'll never make a nickel of them. Small blogs like ours don't have enough traffic to pay anything and the ad at the top is pretty distracting.

    You have a great reason for people to visit. you're in Liberia. I'll put you in my Far Away Folks file.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I don't personally believe people visit my site to see google ads but they do allow people to get connected to related sites and topics. As far as making money, my blog's purpose is not that of money making and if that was the case then the content would reflect that and I believe that my site would be a lot different. I do believe that the google ads that I have placed on my site do not take away from why most people come to visit my site. I have run other ads in the past which advertised different West African artifacts, musical instruments, etc that some people are interested in but have subsequently pulled some of them.

    My plans are to continue to run ads so long as they attribute to the overall enhancement of the experience.

    Thanks once again for the feedback.

    Kevin.
