advertising?

I’m not sure if it was some kind of a joke or not… I mean, I’d just gotten finished writing about how I didn’t want to make money from advertising, when I get an email from someone who wanted to sell advertising on my blog.

they wanted to know how much advertising would cost and if I’d accept PayPal payments.

Insert quandry here. First up: I have no idea what advertising on my blog might be worth. If it was worth a lot, I might consider it… but I suspect it’s not. Second up: did I really mean it when I said I didn’t want to make money from my blog via advertising.

So I slept on it, consulted with friends. And eventually emailed back and said thanks, but no thanks.

So there you go. I’m tested and officially advertising free. Am I mad?
