For a while now, many people have suggested I place ads on this blog. Longtime readers will recall this blog started as a hobby of mine; and as such, I have been reticent to make it commercial in any way. However, it is time-consuming to manage a blog like this, and we can all use a little extra cash sent our way. So, as of today, I have decided to try out Ads by Google on an experimental basis. Part of me doesn't like the way the ads look, but another part of me is curious to discover if I might actually make a little money from this blog. I am interested in hearing your opinions on placing ads on a blog such as this one. Like I said, I am going to go ahead and place these ads to see what happens. I may decide to keep them, or take them down, but your comments are certainly welcome.
