What are good ways to monetize a (individually-run) blog/website without annoying or alienating readers? For me, I hate ads but I tend not to care about affiliate links unless I think they're lying about recommending something just for the $$. Premium memberships can be okay, also selling books/classes/etc. What else?

Any digital comic creators want to work together on Free Comic Book Day?
I can provide free space on Libreture to promote, maybe work out a discount for comic fans, give you a space to host downloads of your comics, and anything else you think would work.
No costs or anything. I want to help and support comic creators.
