Now with ads

I just added Google ads to the rest of this site, mostly as an experiment to see how it worked. If I make any pennies from it that'll be nice too but I'm not really expecting to, my traffic's too low.

Adding them across the whole site was REALLY easy because everything's templated, and I like the control over colour that Google give. The only reason they're not here in the journal too is cos that's a different template. Anyway, the constantly changing subject matter would only confuse the poor dears.

Comments will be most gratefully received. Am I being horribly evil?

[update: I got rid of the ads because they sucked]

"Am I being horribly evil?"

as if that matters. surely being evil is a good thing.

and there not that obtrusive. although some ads are quite funny when looked at in context with what youve said.

I get even funnier ads when I add them to the journal.

The "Free Personal Sex Ads" advert on this comment page is quite funny. Evil? Hmmm, not sure - but luckily a properly configured Firefox filters them out anyway ;-)
