A side note on advertisements. Those who know me know that I basically do not favor advertising, and are probably confused at its presence on my blog. Yesterday I was accepted into the WordPress WordAds program, a beta program that is more or less a competitor to Google’s AdSense.
I’m trying it out, to see how it is. Apparently they can serve up to three ads geared toward the content of my blog. So far, it looks like they are serving one ad, and it’s kind of loosely based on a very broad version of what’s going on here. If you absolutely hate the ads, let me know – if I start getting some sponsorships, I can consider taking them down for good. Thanks for reading!
