I’m throwing this one out to my readers. All three of you. (And therein, perhaps, lies my answer!)
I’m considering the idea of placing ads on my blog. I don’t really want to do it because I like the idea of a “pure” blog, beholden to no one and inspired only by my ideas and desire to write and connect. But at the same time, times are lean and I wouldn’t mind a little extra income.
Sitemeter says I have somewhere around 150 visitors a day. With meager stats like that (and really, I’m fine with that number; I’m not actively doing anything to increase those numbers… I just plain write), is it even worth considering placing ads on my blog?
I’d love some opinions, personal stories, even stats if you have them. And hey, if only three people reply, there’s my answer. Right?
