No, you’re not imagining things–there is a great big ad on my blog now. And yes, you’re right, I’m officially a sell out after equating blogging for money to charging your husband for sex.
So why’d I do it? I’ll tell you why: curiosity. Seriously, that’s it. I have no illusions I’ll be making more than a few bucks a month–if that. I think BlogHer pays $5 or $10 for 1,000 page impressions; if you refer to my stats you’ll see I have yet to hit 1,000 visits in a month’s time. I have 64 subscribers. I get about 35 page views a day. Basically there’s a zero percent chance I’ll be quitting my day job anytime soon based on my earning potential from blogging.
So, there you have it–and sorry for the annoyingness of the one ad that creeps across the page–in the end I may take down the ads just to get rid of that one.
