So I debated posting this because I really do not want to toot my own horn. But after some thought, I believe our horn deserves to be tooted, because we have a lot of talented people who make our website possible.
By now most everyone has heard about the big mistake The Verge made by "reviewing" the new Google Photos app when in reality it was the old Google+ Photos app. I don't need to rehash that whole story.
What I do want to say is this.
Sites like The Verge, Engadget, Re/Code, Mashable, Gizmodo, Techcrunch and many many more are all owned by some corporate suit who's paid by even more corporate suits (through advertising). This is how they make money to fund the big trailers at CES and live feeds from MWC.
Day in day out I read posts all through Google+ about how much people hate all these sites because they're biased.
My challenge to you is this.
Try our site for a few months. Break away from the mainstream technology reporting and check out an independently owned tech site. We use one form of ad revenue at the moment, Google Adsense, nothing more. We do not liter your screen with pop up ads and other nonsense.
We truly want to keep our content front and center and ads to a minimum. But we also want to grow and try and make something of all the hard work we put in. Giving us your support by visiting our site and sharing it with your friends and family goes a long way.
Sure we're not going to have the breaking news of some of the larger sites but we're all still working full time jobs to support our families. We're working hard to be able to supply breaking news and exclusives if possible but we need more time and more support to get there.
Help us continue to grow, check out both www.techaeris.com
and check in on a daily basis. Bookmark us and add us to your RSS feeds. We should be on Flipboard and Google Play Stand as well. Share us with friends and family and to your social networks. We write what we write because we like it, we're not being paid by a corporation to write for them. Our full intention is to remain independent forever.
Sorry for the long post but I had to get that off my chest.
Thanks for your time, support and we hope you'll really consider helping us continue to grow.
