I noticed recently that my ads had gone white, looked into it, realized I'd failed to do some of the paperwork, and verficiation and whatnot, did that stuff, and am now again a godless capitalist who is in it for the money. Why today alone I have earned, in theory, one penny. (US penny.)
Clearly I am rolling in money, and like any soul selling capitalist I naturally want more. What was it that Eddie Izzard said the American dream was? "[T]o be born in the gutter and have nothing. Then to rise up and have all the money in the world, and stick it in your ears and go PLBTLBTLBLTLBTLBLT!" Sounds about right.
So, clearly, more money is what is called for here.
More seriously, Google thinks I should use ads with feeds because they're Google and that's the sort of thing Google would think. If non-feed ads are any indication I get paid just by having a certain amount of people look at them (almost no one clicks my ads*, and having seen the ads myself I don't blame them) and pennies theoretically add up.
So maybe it would be a good idea to have ads in feeds. But I don't want to alienate anybody so if someone who reads this is going to hate me forever if I click "Yeah, sure, ads for feeds," then I'd rather not do it.
So, people who use feeds, what are your thoughts?
And since I'm talking about money, turns out the donate button does indeed work, I've actually known that for a couple of weeks now, but now that it's been used twice I figured some kind of mention might be in order. So thank you. Thank you both.
