I signed up for google's blogger advertising system "AdSense" a few months ago. The way it works is google puts up a few ads on the side of the page that they deem appropriate for my readers. Then they pay me based on viewership. Now I'm not saying that my page is that amazing or anything, or that there aren't tons of other blogs out there that get way more hits each day. But dating back to mid-summer, I have made exactly 11 cents. Total. That averages out to about .01 cents a day. So in order for me to even make $10 a day, this blog would have to become about 10,000 times more popular. One thing I can say for sure is that if I start getting 10,000 times the daily traffic I do now, the last thing I'm going to care about is the ten bucks a day I get from google "AdSense."
So rather than rely on that, I'm going to try to do it on my own. If you're reading this and think you might want to ADVERTISE ON MY BLOG, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll talk. It'll probably be the best money you've ever spent.
