How's the advertising on bookofjoe?


Is there too much?


Do you not even notice?


Above and below, typical ads that appear on my computer alongside boj posts.


Back story: I've been running Google AdSense ads alongside and below individual posts for a number of years.


No advertising on the home page.

I currently rake in... are you ready for this?... about 80 cents/day, roughly $25/month.

Google deposits money in my bank account a couple times a year (they won't bother until my bottom line reaches a minimum of $100).

Once upon a time, when I had about 100x the readership I do today, I made about $300/month from Google and another $300 from Amazon, with whom I ended my affiliation a couple years ago because I couldn't figure out how to insert updated code behind the scenes.

The perils of TechnoDoltery©®.

Anyhoo, let me know what you think of my setup, if you've got the energy and TypePad's 404 Page Not Found happens to be down.

You'll find it in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia.

Switchboard Coat Rack



From the website:


Stop stacking scarf on top of hat on top of jacket.

Switchboard is a wall-mounted coat rack with 25 (!) triangular wooden hooks.

Each rotates down when you need it and rests against the wall when you don't.

• 30" x 5" x 1"

• Beech wood
