Adverts on the site
Earlier this week I added bigger, more prominent adverts to the site. I'd like to know your thoughts, particularly if you find them intrusive. If enough people object I'll probably remove them, or at least return them to their previous format.
I made the change because I'd like the site to pay for itself a bit more efficiently than it currently does. I write the blog because I enjoy doing so, I know it is never going to earn me any serious money, but I'm sure there is room for financial improvement. I do ok out of being an Amazon Affiliate and having Google AdSense embedded in the right hand column. The odd bit of freelancing also helps.
My suspicion is that the new ads will make bog-all difference to the coppers in my pocket and will likely annoy some people. They're beginning to annoy me, I liked the look I had going previously, so there is a fair chance that they'll all be gone quite soon. Then again, if I earn a pretty penny, I may be able to overcome my stylistic principles.
