As you’ve probably noticed, I’m now offering advertising on my blog.
I’m now getting over 5000 views a month on this blog, and apparently that’s a stage at which you can start thinking about advertising on the web. I applied to an advertising network (Beacon Ads) and got accepted, and as a result now have one ad slot available.
I’m not looking to make tons of money from advertising, but I am looking to hopefully cover some of the costs of running this blog. That way I’ll be able to run this blog for years to come without having to think of what it is costing me.
This is a complete experiment for me, and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if nobody bought advertising. If nobody does, I’ll probably give up, or look for another way in which I can try to cover the costs of running this blog. But we’ll see how this goes for now, and hopefully it’ll get my blog to be “in the black” as a result.
If you’ve got a blog, I’d love to hear of your experiences with advertising in the comments below.
