New item in my tabs I noticed this morning before writing a posting. "MONETIZE" If you use Blogspot, you have it too. It allows you to have ads on your blog that will pay you for using your space.
Recently, a friend suggested I put ads on my blog to make a little extra cash. I declined, and I hope you will too.
Let me explain.
When I visit blogs, I am interested in the person, the subject, the blog in general. Besides the content of the blog, I love gadgets. I enjoy the gadgets like pictures, music, list, blog followers. I love the profile on the side bar. I love bloggers that change their layouts.
I can count on "Over the Fence", to have seasonal backgrounds bringing new cheer of each holiday. "Willow Manor", lets me know what she is reading, eating, and here current tea."FireByrd", always have the coolest photo at the top of her blog that changes periodically. "Count Your Blessings", & "Musings from the Deep" always share my music interest with great playlist. "Lori Times Five" & "One Foot in Front of the Other" have blog list showing new postings on their favorite blogs.
I have wandered onto a few blogs that have the advertisements. Hate them! They distract me. They depersonalize the blog. They irritate me. Most likely, I wont return to that blog, regardless to the content of the blog. It bugs me that much.
So, you wont be seeing the distracting ads on my blog. Tempting to wave a dollar at me, but not worth capitalism. Hopefully you too will reframe.
What a difference a day makes ...
