AdSense ads removed

I couldn’t take seeing ads for PublishAmerica and other outfits I’d never in my life recommend showing up on my blog, so, as of this evening, the Google AdSense ads are gone from here.

I’m very interested in the issue of monetizing a writing career in the decades to come. If it ceases to be possible for most writers to make a living off of selling copies of books, because free digital versions undermine the print-copy revenue model, I’m curious about what other revenue streams might exist for writers; AdSense seemed like a possibility, but without way more control over who advertises, I’m not comfortable with it.

Ah, well. It was an interesting experiment.
