Should I "Monetize"?

Do you lose your blog integrity by monetizing through Google's Adsense? I suppose that, in a way, it just makes you a mini publisher, without the overhead of an advertising department.

It's almost worth doing to see what bizarre matches this program would make with your content. I mean, let's face it, what could you match with my debut blog about challenging me to write on any subject!

On the other hand, my next entry about seeking opportunities as an old bod might make my site either a focal point for recruitment companies, a link to pre-paid funeral plans, or even pharmaceuticals (given I have published my pic, I might even attract ads for plastic surgery or hair restoration.

I haven't monetized to date, but I'm tempted to see what matches I'd get. The other thing is, of course, that revenue depends on readership and, to date, there are no followers of this blog. Perhaps I should build readership by getting more controversial - throw some politics, religion or sex into my missives.

Anyway, see you another time. As always, if you're bobbing around in the BloggosFear, drop me a line.
