Site News I've decided to try a new experiment. Can a blog like mine with its small but loyal audience make Google Text Ads workable? I've tried to add them sensitively and I don't think they stick out too much. Meanwhile, I've also decided to start using Blogline's blogroll so that I can have an accurate up to date list of what I'm reading for people to explore ... it looks a bit messy now, but I'm going through the list now and shaving off any of the really ineligant ones. Meanwhile -- anyone know what's happening with Blogger's posting -- it seems to be leaving rather an odd gap after each post.

    I have no idea what on earth you are talking about. Has technology passed me by again or what ?!

    Obviously it has Isabelle. I understand every word. Some day soon I'll get a (small) cheque from google for my ads. Shame they pay in dollars!

  3. Ian -- when I was setting up the text ads I was offered the ability to get paid in pounds sterling -- I think it's an option you can still go in and specify...

    Hey Isabelle -- Here is a Wiki entry about AdSense ...

    Ian Jackson you condescending cretin. I'm so glad you understand every word. I guess having a life this has passed me by.
