Pondering adverts – feedback sought! (Updated)

I’m considering putting some advertising onto the site using Google for older posts, using the “No Adverts for Friends” plugin which doesn’t display adverts to people who have commented, referred from various social bookmarking sites or on posts that are less than a month old.

But before I do that I’d like to hear readers views about whether or not they like the idea!

(Also remember that if you do leave feedback then you won’t see any adverts if I do put them up. 🙂 )

Basically I’m hoping to use any income from this to help fund the virtual machine that hosts this site, along with Auties.org (a website promoting the abilities of people on the Autism spectrum).

Update 1: Just to clarify, Auties.org will NOT have any paid advertising on it! Just this blog..

Update 2: Russell Coker left a supportive post on his blog in response to this.

  1. Sounds fine by me, it sounds like a pretty minimalist, non-intrusive way of going about it too. Nothing wrong with trying to help cover your costs.

  2. There’s one thing you should be aware of though, and that is that with targeted ads and such, you may end up hosting cure-autism ads. I’m not sure how you’d feel about that.

  3. Thanks all for your comments so far!

    @John: Well given you’ve left a comment already you won’t see them anyway! Also I’m only talking about ads on my blog, they’re not going anywhere near Auties.org, don’t worry. My concern here would be Microsoft ads more than anything else.. 🙂
