To try to justify the amount of time I spend writing here and to help fund future adventures, I'm going to put some ads up here.
My first preference is to have ads from readers, but I guess I'll get Google ads if I don't get enough interest.
The ads will be 125x125 and will above the "Recent Comments" and "Recent Posts" sections on the right.
Animated graphics are ok as long as I don't think they're annoying.
On normal days with no big links I get between 400 and 500 unique visitors as well as 700+ RSS subscribers.
90% of my readers are male, and a large proportion are 20-35 year olds. Roughly 99% of them are awesome. 100% have great taste in blogs.
Most incoming links besides digg and such are from pick up blogs, so this is a particularly good deal for pickup or self improvement stuff.
The price is $150/mo. The first person to sign up will get a lifetime discount of $50/mo and the second will get $25/mo. I picked $150 because it's a price that would make ME buy an ad on a similar site.
I'll put up 3-6 of them and they will show up on every story as well as the front page.
