Thinking about commericalizing this blog

How sad is that? Ads. A wee nosh of Money for me. Pocket change. Something to give the bums. Or with which to buy my kids shoes. Or lettuce.

What do you all think? Would it ruin this blog to have a strip of ads along the side?

Or should I start something snazzy and less contemplative where I rant and rave about all the injustices in the world, so that I can get highter number of hits and get paid more?

Opinions? Votes?

I don't even know how many people read this blog. It would be interesting to get a hit counter and find out.

Let me know what you all think.

You'll have to let us know how much you earn - maybe we should all do it!

I say, go for it!

The ads wouldn't bother me since I read you on an RSS feed anyway. If it helps a little...I say do it! It's a creative way to make a little money.

There's nothing at all pathetic about monetizing your blog. I recommend http://www.blogherads.com/for-bloggers

They pay per impression, not per click, which is nice. Even if no one clicks on the ad you still get paid. It pays better than Google Adsense. Plus, Adsense only pays you once the account reaches $100.

I would read your blog ads or not, so if adding ads helps you, I say go for it!!!

Sounds good to me. Why not, we are surrounded by advertisements all the time anyway.

I am trying Google Analytics; it gives all kinds of detailed analysis of traffic to your site (blog) including geographical origin, repeat visitors vs new visits etc. Interesting; It would be very useful if we were actually running business enterprises on the 'net.

I agree with everyone else. Give it a try and see. It wouldn't bother me. I guess the only thing you may want to check is how much control you have over what is advertised. I'm sure you want them to be family friendly.

Good luck and DO tell us how it works out.
