That's correct, ladies and gentlemen. I have discovered a cool little way to make money on this blog thing.
At one time I hated advertisements. I thought they were an obstruction of natural beauty; a necessary evil interrupting the television shows I so dearly loved. After watching Affluenza one day in AP Art class, I drew on a piece of paper in mocking protest of the commercialization of American society. I drew an ad. And I taped it to the side of my briefcase. My ad read something like this: "Advertise today! $1 per day, $5 per week!" And I had a hand-drawn marker picture of a briefcase on it.
I wanted to highlight the supreme silliness this world has come to, where you can't even go to a public high school without being bombarded with ads.
As with most of my jokes, I took this one seriously. I actively campaigned for customers. And it soon became much more than a joke. "Thadvertise" was actually making money! It was no 6-figure salary, but I viewed it as essentially free money.
Well, Thadvertise is back. If you look all the way down at the bottom of my page here, you will find a small, unobtrusive banner with relevant ads provided by Google. Every click gives me some money. And clicking is free for you to do. I'll let you know how big my first check is next month.
