Comic strip blogger talks about Darren Rowse, Cam Reilly has breakfast with him and talks about how much money he makes with his blog ($14,500 in Google ads in one month???). If he’s such a power, how come I never heard of this guy until yesterday?
Google Ads mailed me yesterday. They have finally noticed that I have taken them off my page. I just never ported them into my new templates on WordPress and haven’t been on fire to do so. Mainly, it’s because the ads they served were so bad and boring. Nine times out of ten, it was something about an RSS reader. Yawn. I actually got some checks from them and made a reasonable amount of money, but not so much that I feel like farting around with them. I really hate the whole “don’t talk about what you make” stuff, which I think is the opposite of “don’t be evil.” What we do here is about candor and Google’s method of squashing candor also really bugs me. If I made more or they were less of a pain in the ass, maybe I’d put them back on. For now, I just don’t feel like it.
