Running a quality anthropology blog, like the ones listed in Anthropology Blogs 2017, is a lot of work. While many of these blogs draw on free platforms, some of the best are on self-hosted sites. You can support anthropology blogs by making a contribution. For example: Allegra’s “Call for Help” (Before We Crash).

If you wish to support anthropology blogs by contributing to Living Anthropologically, you can use PayPal. Please note that contributions are not tax-deductible. All contributions go directly to promote the site 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.
