Blogspot has been bothering me with me since I logged into my account: "your blog is popular, why not make some money with it, allow Google to put ads on it, add AdSense bla, bla, bla"... It sounds so utterly unsincere: I don't even have 30 official followers yet and I don't have that many regular readers or visitors. I doubt I can make much if any money with it. And I usually hate ads and think there are too many of them. Why add some here?
Yet I am surprised at feeling tempted about it. Maybe because there is a slim chance I could make some money from it, and even though it wouldn't be much, that would mean that I would get money from writing, albeit indirectly. Even my thesis didn't get me anything, it costed more for me to get it published. There is some kind of recognition in earning money. Praises don't always satisfy as much. But then again, this blog is not meant to be some kind of virtual store. There is Amazon for that. So I ask my readership what they think about it. To add AdSense or not?
This is Exactly How I Feel
