I do direct sales on my forum, I sent out an email explaining the ad positions and asked if anyone was interested. I have some takers and the one member has been purchasing banners ads for a couple of years now.
Due to my job I work a lot of overtime in the winter and we are blacked out from taking any time off. So no plans for me in winter time, just work and sleep.
