Personally, I have no problems with “monetizing” blogs. Text links, especially for legitimate sites, in exchange for money? A good thing in my book. It helps cover the costs of hosting, and the price of yarn. So I signed up last month for Text Link Ads, and I have been very happy with their service and I wanted to spread the word. They have brought in money, which covers the cost of the iRiver I bought for the podcast. Now I’m going to start saving the rest to go for new recording equipment. (That is a referral link there – if you sign up, I get money. Just thought I should disclose that.)
Sign up, get links, and get paid. It is that easy! And easy money? Never a bad thing.
