Update (2/22/2020): The Instabug ads ran for three months on noahgilmore.com and generated 14 dollars in revenue. Given this, I've removed them from the site.
When browsing noahgilmore.com/blog starting today, you may see sponsored content - sometimes in the sidebar and sometimes in sections like this:
Instabug implements in-app bug reports and message threads with users in a simple, easy to configure interface.

I'll be piloting these sponsored sections on some posts (generally the longer form, higher effort ones) in the coming months. Writing high quality content on this blog takes a fair amount of work - drafting, editing, testing, creating example code, recording gifs, etc. The revenue I get through sponsorships helps make the investment worth it from a financial perspective, and hopefully I'm able to pay it forward by continuing to create content for the community.
In the interest of transparency, I wanted to take the time to highlight a few points:
sponsorship-opt-out-point. For Adblock Plus, for example, the rule looks like
noahgilmore.com##.sponsorship-opt-out-point. For sidebar content, you can also click the "hide" button to remove the section from the page.
I'm grateful to Instabug for being the first sponsor of this site. If your company would like to be displayed as a sponsor, feel free to reach out.
