Hello there, [MM_Member_Data name=’firstName’]!
This post is about the changes underway at Flaming Janes – we have decided to allow advertising on the public side of the site. An important note here is that this will not affect your private members’ content in any way – it will always remain ad-free!
Why are we making this choice? Well, it was a tough one for sure. We really wanted to avoid that at all costs, and when I say “we” I mean “me”. I always speak as though there are 12 of us running things here at Flaming Janes, but, it’s only me, and herein lies the crux of the choice to employ ads on the public side of the site.
As a solopreneur, I spend 40 or more hours per week creating and curating recipes, cooking, sampling, tweaking, typing, posting, designing, and photographing everything. I love food, I love cooking, I love creating, and I love what I do here – that said, I also work 40 hours a week outside of my home. I am tired…
I have been building the Flaming Janes concept since May 2018. At its inception, it was designed to be a members-only site, and I love this idea because I absolutely can’t stand visiting those ad packed recipe sites. Those ads drive me nuts! However, the rest of the internet does not seem to be put off by the ads and is not as excited about a private member’s site as I am.
At the end of the day Flaming Janes is a business and she needs to earn her keep because mama is getting worn out!
So, last week I decided that there was no reason that Flaming Janes could be not only a members-only site, but that I could also employ ads on the public side of the site as another means of generating income and ensure that Flaming Janes carries on as a successful and useful resource in the home-cooking arena.
So, there you have it. Flaming Janes is moving on and moving forward. Feel welcome to connect with me any time if you have any questions or concerns: [email protected]

NOTE: Please ensure that you are always logged into your member’s page when viewing dinner recipes or the recipe archive. You can access the same content on the public side of the site – but it will be loaded with ads. The member’s area is always ad-free :o)
