Effective Advertising?


I mentioned in my last blog post that I have chosen not to have ads on my website. More than several people have urged me to have ads to help cover the cost of having a website. I'd rather pay the price and be in control of what appears on my site. I am reluctant to give an advertiser the opportunity and access to put anything on my site that I wouldn't want to be there.

That said, today I'm chosing to put display some ads ... for your amusement. You'll understand as you work your way down the page.

Because of the ads, some shopping bags are almost too good to throw away....

Some ads are clever, partially because of their placement....

Sometimes even though an ad is well placed, people or things end up in a bad spot...

Sometimes several ads in close proximity send mixed messages...

And then some ads are just simply poorly placed. This is one of my fears with something like Google AdSense, where Google will pick up on a key word on the page and then place an ad that seems to go with what's on a website, when it actually doesn't....

    The creative ads and bags are great!

    I applaud you for not having ads. Not only are they hard to control, but they give a whole different look and feel to a blog.
