Making a Little Money

Yes, I have finally broken down and decided to try adding Google Adsense to my blog. In some ways it feels like I am selling out; that I’m not being true to the Internet and what it means to be a blogger. But, at the same time, if I can earn a buck or two, why not give it a try. I’ve tried to configure the ads so that they don’t distract too much from the main content of the site. I’ll give it a try for a couple of weeks and I’ll see how much money I can earn.

In order to simplify the install, I used the AdSense-Deluxe Plugin for WordPress, as well as some of the advice from Stephen Collin’s site on how to edit a template (specifically a K2 template).

  1. I woud suggest removing the line “if you see an ad that interests you click it.” Any earnings you do make will not be paid out if Google sees this, since it is a violation of their TOS. 🙂

    I’m by no means a Google cop, just trying to help you out, in case you do make some extra cash. Keep up the good work on the blog.
