Trying to Get Paid

You will notice in the coming days advertisements appearing on this blog. My apologies to your sensibilities, but I'm curious to see if it's worthwhile. If the ads become a nuisance, I will remove them.

I have them on my blog. They don't get clicked on very often, but they do add up over time. Bought me a pair of running shoes so far...

I have them on my blog too and it takes time... but I have noticed that when the ads actually pertain to my blog (running/triathlons), that they get clicked more often...

So many people have them, I think we're all desensitized, so don't sweat it.

Only top shelf booze ads, please. ;)

I have AdBlock install so I won't even notice them :)

I know what you mean... I was wary of adding adds to my own blog, so I put them toward the bottom and sides (easier to ignore for those who are not interested).

I finally gave it a go when I realized that I didn't mind side-panel ads on other blogs.

My biggest ad-related blog pet-peeve is when bloggers endorse products under the guise of a "review" without disclosing that they're either getting paid for the "review" or that they received the swag for free. (If they disclose, pet-peeve averted.)

Best of luck with yours!
