Selling out

In case you haven't noticed, there is now advertising on my blogs. I'm going to try to keep it to a minimum on this site since this is sort of my personal writing spot, but any other blogs or Web sites I handle are open to advertising.

Yes, some folks would call this selling out. Some might even call me a whore. Some might just be sick and tired of all the advertising in the world. I agree, to all those things. Yes, I am selling out.

Why not? It's not as if I will get rich, maybe only an extra $10 a month or even less. But I'm blogging any way, so why not make a few exra bucks at it.

However, if the ads get annoying, or they cause you to have big page loading problems, please let me know. Yes, if the ads are more trouble than they are worth, I will eventually drop them. But until then, I'll keep at it.

Besides, I'm a writer. We're supposed to sell out.

I do believe you are making far too big a deal about this. I hadn't noticed; would have eventually and wouldn't have minded. Not until they start getting in my way and making me click on them to get to the good parts (life SFReader is now doing). Then again, there'd have to be good parts, right? ;)

HvD, you're probably right that I'm making too big a deal out of this. But while researching online advertising, I ran across some folks that are pretty strongly against it. Of course, I also ran across plenty of people who are crazy about it.
