Look at what R*Belle did.
Crickets chirping. Laptops whirring. Blenders mixing margaritas. Oh wait, I’m daydreaming yet again.
She bought a text ad on my sidebar! Yes, you see I am too darn stubborn to admit that perhaps I’m not in the Adbrite league and so I refuse to taken down my text ad pitch. It’s a bargain people. Really.
I won’t get into the blog ad debate here because others are doing that so well. Obviously I am not “against” ads on blogs (see the ClubMom
sellout ad at the bottom of my blog) although personally if ads begin to take over a blog and you notice the ads more than the writing then I think it starts crossing the line over into MySpace obnoxiousness. I don’t like popups. I don’t like music or animation or anything that reminds me of Dollywood on crack on a blog. When I visit a blog I visit it to read and not necessarily shop or be reminded immediately that the volume is cranked up on my computer.
So do you have ads on your blog? And, if not, do you run shrieking into the blogosphere when you see ads? Do you even notice blog ads? And speaking of noticing ads, go click on R*belle’s ad over there, will you? Thanks. You’re a peach.
