So, I started running Six Apart Adify ads on this blog when they announced the Journalist Bailout Program. I didn’t need the software, but I signed up for the ads. This blog has about 600 visitors a day to the site, plus newsreader traffic, and a fairly decent Alexa rank, so I wanted to see what the Adify ads would get me.
Well, after three months, I was able to buy these earrings and have some other money left over. Kind of the same rate of return as selling jam, maybe a whole lot less.
It gives new meaning to the idea journalism jobs are gone, because most of these poor schmoes won’t make enough money to buy socks, let along groceries or mortgage/rent.
But the earrings are gorgeous, aren’t they?
