You may consider it selling out, but I’ve added Google ads to my site as a way to see if this site can become self sustaining. I’ll give it a try on the home page and Tech-know pages for now, and I may eventually add them to the blog pages. But even I have limits to advertising, and I won’t add them to my bio or scrapbook pages. I’ve also copied a new version of the Google search script into my online search. I chose to go with text only, seeing how I dislike flashing pictures on other sites. Hopefully the ads will provide some useful links for further research.
And in case you’re wondering, I don’t have much control over the ads. They search each page’s contents and determine which ads to display. Therefore, even though some questionnable ads may show up on my site, I do not condone them or have any control over them.
