I have recently added some advertising to my blog. What I like about Google’s AdSense advertising is that it is related to the context, so you should always see ads related to what I am writing about. I like that versus random advertising.
Another benefit is that I might make some extra moolah on the side through the ads and be able to afford new running shoes. You want to help Linden get new running shoes, right? :)
This is also the advertising that funds my most favorite-est web application in the world ever, Gmail (seriously, it will change the way you email–give it a try!). I’ve had it for a little over 3 1/2 years now, and I think I have clicked on the ads maybe once. That’s another reason I decided to go ahead and take the plunge: It’s there, but you don’t have to click on it if you don’t want to.
In other words, I want to be up front and let you know that I’ve added advertising to my blog, and even though I hope it’ll bring in a few bucks, I’m not expecting all of you to start clicking on the ads unless you see something you need.
