Why The Ads?
I haven't ever had ads here, and hadn't planned on adding ads. Because, really, who is gonna see 'em? The same five people who have them on their own site.
But then Terry Heaton came up with this really cool Nashville RevShare ad campaign. I was signed on for that, but then I guess it's taken longer to hammer out than Terry expected. Which is fine--I am married to a man who has a similar job and I know all of the wrenches--monkey, Allen, whathaveyou--that get thrown into these types of things.
Then yesterday I saw that 2 Retire @ 50 was actually making money from AdSense. My next thought was "Why him and not me?", immediately followed by "I'll be eighteen cents richer than I was before!" So I signeded meself up. Of course, the ads are tailored to the content, which given my writing style means that the poor Google AdSense people are going to get whiplash trying to decide what to put up there.
As long as I get my eighteen cents, I'll be happy.
Because NK freaked me out, I took down the picture of my account in a marginal effort to appease the PTB. We'll see if I avoid a C&D now.
