Google ads

Since June, I've been trying an experiment, allowing Google ads to display on the blog. In over a month, I've earned a total of 71 cents. Meanwhile, the ads that have appeared here have included ones for products and services I don't endorse. Today was the last straw--there was an ad for a company promising to get rid of swallow nests. So I've dropped the project.

Being unemployed sucks. But I can live without that 71 cents.


  1. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your wonderful bird photos. Janice Lawson - Montana, soon to be Oregon

  2. As my friends from Australia say "good on ya." That's why I've never added ads - I was worried about just that very thing happening.

    I also agree that being unemployed sucks.
