The Blonde Coyote Is Not For Sale

Neither is the real Blonde Coyote!

This blog of mine must have hit some kind of tipping point recently, because my inbox has been filling up at an annoyingly alarming rate with requests for advertising on the Blonde Coyote. Let me just say this: I will never allow ads on this site.

As a photographer, the visual impact of these pages is too important to me to clutter them with ads, but on a more philosophical level, I am able to live the life that I live in large part because I don’t buy stuff/crap/things and I cannot, in good conscience, sell them on my blog.

That is all. Thanks for reading! Want to support your favorite Coyote? Buy a print!  🙂

    Yes, thanks for not selling out. But then we know you are an artist at heart and wouldn’t do that anyway! But speaking of selling…I have a small retail shop and would love the chance to sell your wonderful photos on cards, in my shop. (it is a small town Feed store with pet foods) Any chance of that? Please email if so.

    Good on you. I have followed your blog for a while now and love your tales of travels and adventure. I think you’re an inspirational young woman and I hope my daughters will lead their lives as fully and happily as you do.

    Take care on your travels.

    Good philosophy! I hate the visual clutter of ad-clogged sites too.

  9. Well done, Mary! You are now officially on my list of places to buy birthday presents whenever I have the resources. You join the ranks of fair trade goods, local businesses, and artisans whose existence & well-being I choose to support with my limited cash.
