No one has asked me questions about this blog let alone “frequently asked”, but since that is the accepted nomenclature, I’ll make some questions up that hypothetically might be asked. If I am ever frequently asked questions for real, I will be sure to add them here (don’t hesitate to ask some yourself in the comments here, by email or via the contact page).
The funny shaped arrow cutting across the logo in the header is known as an S-curve. The S-curve is a good symbol of our vision for this site because it is the shape for the cumulative adoption of new innovations (See Rodgers, 2003 seminal bible, Diffusion of Innovations) and because it is used by transition researchers to represent the path from the current unsustainable state to a future sustainable state–our goal here at Achieving Sustainability.
Achieving Sustainability is for me, a passion project. Unfortunately, passion is not sufficient to pay for the domain, hosting etc. For full disclosure I also use affiliate links (just for Amazon for now) which means that if you buy something they kick me back a small percentage for referring you to their site. I feel the non-obtrusive but explicit advertisements are a good model for maintaining the financial viability of websites. It is my sincerest hope, dear reader, that neither of these revenue generating aspects interfere with your experience. I promise that when I get rich off of them that I will invite you to visit my private island (though you’ll have to watch advertisements while you are there).
Of course! Well hold on just one second. I have no interest in advertising for Philip Morris, Exon-Mobil or the like. But if you have a Sustainability product or website that you’d like to advertise, just shoot me an email at email@example.com and we’ll discuss terms and possibilites.
Well then follow my affiliate link and support Achieving Sustainability!!
Of course you can! The goal of Achieving Sustainability is not to promote Aaron Redman’s perspective and biases but to foment a discussion on humanity’s future and Sustainability. If you are interested, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with some of your ideas and we will get the ball rolling.
Yes, I would be very interested in writing a post for your blog though we should plan ample time for me to be able to complete the work as I want it to be of the highest quality yet still get my beauty sleep :). Write me at email@example.com and we’ll brainstorm some ideas.
