As many of you have noticed, in hopes of turning my musings into a lucrative affair, I run a single ad at the top of my page. I get a little bit of money every time a new IP address clicks the link. AdSense is smart (usually) by scanning the text for key words so the ads relate to what I'm talking about.
My friend Doyle warned me that once he called someone or something a douche in his blog years ago, and AdSense ran ads for douching for the next week. After yesterday's posting, what ad, you ask, did I wake up to this morning?
Artificial Insemination procedure in Argentina for only USD 4795!
Hopefully, it isn't in the same manner as the article I posted. In other bad news, tomorrow's ad will likely be for douching products. It would be extra funny if all of you clicked these ads and netted me more revenue than I've received thus far.
On the positive note, barring a monumental disaster at blogger.com's servers, I should pass 1000 hits today. Not bad at all for my first month and a half of blogging. Thanks to all of you for your readership.
I just checked, and one of you had clicked the ad before I asked...who needs inseminating, and can I volunteer? I'm much cheaper that $4,795. Then again, maybe you wanted the bull...
