Blueswami.com has been on the web since 2002. Some of the Swami Baktanimbin fun stuff was first published in different format on AOL Australia from 1998.
All profits from this site go to kiva.org, a micro-financing setup that helps small businesses in developing countries get off the ground. You can see which businesses Blueswami is funding by going to www.kiva.org/lenders/blueswami
And just to prove all those web analysis companies wrong, this site gets about 700 visitors a day, and makes about $3 a week. You don't make much money out of Google Ads when you have a site primarily dedicated to fungi.
The web is the last bastion of communism. Everything on it should be, and often is, free. You are welcome to use any of this stuff free of charge on your own web site. I can ever supply you with hi res pictures for most of the photographs.
