You might have guessed that I host these series of rambles on WordPress.com. Which means, of course, if I’d rather not have their advertising on the site, I need to pay them to opt-out. Fair enough, it’s not as if I’m paying for the service and it’s stable with pretty much 100% uptime.
Recently I got invited to take part in Wordads. Wordads allows you to get a share of the revenue that Automattic (the owners of WordPress) make from advertising on your weblog. Sounded interesting until I read the terms of the service. Among other interesting things I’d need to agree to, I discovered that I’d need a PayPal account.
Guess I’ll be deciding whether I’m happy with the Google ads currently displayed or want to add another $30 a year to the $13 I’m already paying Automattic for the domain then.
I’m sure they’ll make more money out of me that way, anyway.
