But still, I've got to admit that I'm doing this for the money. I mean, everyone else is doing it, so why shouldn't I? And if anything, perhaps now I'll have more incentive to post more frequently and get more readers. As it is, I've always sort of shied away from having toooo big of a readership and post less frequently if I get too many readers, as it kind of freaked me out to have so many people reading my shit. But hell, I'm a big boy so maybe it's time I expand my readership beyond you lucky souls.
I might also start posting the shorter material that I typically write as comments at other blogs. And if the money looks good, I might just sell out completely and start writing the sort of chest-thumping material that people actually want to read, possibly to the point of just regurgitating other people's material while adding a quick "Heh, indeed" or "Harrumph harrumph" (depending on the situation, of course), and maybe go as far as posting girlie pics and links to illegal videos of naked journalists. After which, I suspect I'd go to my local Walmart, buy the largest handgun they've got, and blast my brains out all over my computer.
But then again, this is all just an experiment and the ads might just disappear as quickly as they came. It's not that I need the money, I just feel like maybe I'm cheating myself by not doing it. Or perhaps I'm cheating myself by selling out, I don't know. I guess I'm so old school that I still believe in writing for fun. I've been doing this shit since before blogs were invented and miss the days when I could directly debate on Usenet's messageboards, rather than writing alone on my own website. Oh well, we'll see how this goes.
