Ads

A perceptive reader asks, "why do you have an ad at the top of your blog?" Because I earn money if people click on it, apparently! So - click away! I just recently noticed that it was an option and decided to try it. Lots of other blogs have them, and I haven't been bothered by them. I thought it would be interesting to see what kinds of ads would show up. Apparently the way it works is this: once Google approves your blog as ad-worthy, they "crawl" your blog to decide what kind of blog it is and pick ads that they think will appeal to the readership. I notice that right now it's an ad for "Beowulf" - a film, I think. Google must think this is a highbrow blog!
