totse.com has always been an advertising-supported site. Most of the ads pay the site a couple of bucks when you click on the ad and then buy something on the advertiser's site.
However, a lot of people who use totse on a daily basis have their own on-line businesses. Some of these businesses are too small to set up their own affiliate advertising program. Some sell such off-beat or off-the-wall products that traditional advertising won't do them much good.

If you don't have a business, but you've been wanting to give money to totse just for being here, now's your chance to give us money AND get a message of your choice displayed on the site. Decide what you want to say, go to Ad Brite, and put the ad up.
