And I do mean dollar. As in one. As in one dollar. As in the one dollar per week I’m hoping to make from the addition of a bit of Google Adsense to the site. I know, I know. I too have always thought it was a little cheesy to put advertising, however well targeted and unobtrusive, on a little-trafficked personal site, particularly one that is long on opinions and short on legitimately interesting or useful content. Though I do have cat pictures. Lots of cat pictures.
Ah, but here’s another of my defining personality traits: I am cheap. A moneygrubber, if you will. The temptation to claim back some of my hosting expenses, as admittedly modest as they are, just proved too much, I’m afraid. If you really hate the ads, then, I don’t know, close one eye and use your thumb to block the view. I’m not officially suggesting that you click on a few of the ads just because you think I’m such a swell dude, but on the off chance you actually run across one that looks relevant to your interests, don’t be afraid to click on it, secure in the knowledge that, in doing so, you’ll have dropped a few pennies in the ol’ tip jar.
Why, there’s $1.66 off two clicks in there already. Sodas for everyone! Or sodas for 2.76 of you, anyway.
