What do you think about adverts on blogs? Yesterday I added a google adsense banner to my sidebar and I have to admit that I hate it! I think it looks really ugly and I want to rip it out. Luckily I don’t have to scroll down there very much and so can try to avoid looking at it.
I am going to put up with it for one month and see how it goes. If it makes me enough money to buy a book or two, doesn’t put off people visiting my site and stops annoying me so much then it might stay, but I have my doubts.
My husband thinks that as I spend so much time blogging I should at least try to make a bit of money out of it, so I have agreed to a one month trial.
I like links to Amazon and other book selling sites and always try to use my favourite bloggers whenever I buy books – which is quite often! Are there any other types of advert which you like on a blog?
Would any amount of money persuade you to put such an ugly thing on your blog?
Have you done anything to make your blogging habit more appealing to your partner?
Will you abandon me because I have a horrible advert?
