Forget the ads

I’ve had ads running on this site as a lazy experiment for the better part of 18 months now. I haven’t done anything to really push the ads other than prominently display them. My take home was roughly $2.50 each month – which just isn’t worth the annoyance of seeing ads up there, so I’ve ripped that done. All told, my earnings haven’t broken $50, so to hell with it. I typically get between 2500 and 3000 pageviews a month – just not enough to mess with advertising for even simple cash.

Away go the ads.
