As you may know, I am trying to make a go of becoming a freelance writer.  One of the possible ways that I could generate some income is through advertisements on my blog.  I've been hesitant to do so, as I was afraid it might be a major pain in the tuchus for my regular readers.  So I was wondering if you all would mind my addition of ads to this website.  Please feel free to weigh in through comments or email.



  1. I personally don't mind ads. The thing that I've found is that you only really make money with ads when you have lots and lots of people reading your site. When I updated my Audrey Hepburn site regularly, had ads up, and around 400 daily readers I made just a few hundred dollars a year. On my personal site I made so little that I pulled down most of the ads and now just keep the Amazon ones up, which allows me to buy a couple books a year (worth it for me). Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

  2. As long as it doesn't flash, install anything on my PC, or is a product you wouldn't actually use in a million zillion years...I'm all good!
    Caveat - if you wouldn't use it in a million zillion years, but it's funny, it's fair game.

  3. I don't mind ads. My blog is part of the foodbuzz ad network which has had some side perks in addition to pay per thousand views.

  4. I think I do a pretty good job of ignoring ads on most other sights so 'salright with me.
