Following Zach Lipton‘s lead, I have begun testing one ad on my blog. I hate advertisements on web pages even if they are targeted ones but this time I don’t feel like a traitor because, even though I get paid upon a download of Firefox with Google Toolbar, I am promoting an invaluably good product that I use often.
But does this signal the end of the web as we know it, if every lowly blogger averaging 40 visitors a day puts an ad on their website? Whatever happened to good wholesome content? Is the web just a huge overflowing pot of advertisements that are each vying for your attention everyday?
I may opt for a smaller ad, but let me know if you have any comments for now.
Update: I have removed the ad from my site. The more I looked at it, the more I couldn’t stand it. I’m not blogging to make money anyway…
