When Selling Out Really Doesn't Pay
Since September I've included ads (in addition to the selected links) on this blog partly for a more official feel (check major websites and tell me there's no advertising) and partly to see if I could make any money on the side (I am a low-income college student). It turns out the most effective ads were the most annoying. While the ads didn't present any serious issues ads they did include I would not endorse and distracted from the writing. Also, after ten months I haven't earned enough to meet their threshold to see a penny. With all that in mind I've removed the ads and canceled my account. Enjoy the new clutter and ad-free layout.
