Quick note - YNWA has gone commercial. I might have mentioned this before, but Blogger runs this thing called Adsense, which, they say, presents tasteful, carefully tailored advertisements on your blog.
As an experiment, I have decided to try Adsense to see if their publicity - namely that adverts will be blog specific and porn free, and also not feature those annoying floaty adverts that you cannot get away from - is true. What really intrigues me is how they go about navigating blog-specifity for this particular blog, and decide from that what the demographic is. I think we all know that on the whole, those reading this probably constitute the worse set of consumers in history, and are therefore a marketeers nightmare. Seeing what adverts are appropriate for us lot should be interesting.
In order to be completely transparent, I should mention that, theoretically at least, I get paid whenever anyone clicks on the advert. It's up to you guys if you do, or do not, as the adverts are based on a similar system to the royslty payments that musicians operate under, and the amount of readers of this blog are so small that even if everyone clicks on the adverts, the money rasied in five years would probably be insufficient to buy a smallish cake, for the YNWA re-union, in the unlikely event that we ever have a re-union. If however, we do end up making a few bucks, we'll have a vote and donate the proceeds to some charity or other worthwhile cause like a bank, or politician.
