I have been thinking about ways to supplement my meager grad student income and it occurred to me that I might benefit from placing google ads on this (currently ad-free) site. Joel at Crummy Church Signs seems to have had a bad experience with it, but then, I feel like I don't have much to lose by signing up. So here are my questions for you, dear internet:
1) is placing google ads likely to gain me anything?
2) will I lose credibility, self-respect, or anything else in the process?
in other words, is it worth it? I look forward to your collective input.
