I've decided to start placing advertisements served by Google AdSense on this blog as well as my other Web sites. I figure that if the comment spammers think my blog is lucrative virtual real estate, I may as well get in on the action. I don't foresee any conflicts of interest since I don't control which ads Google chooses to display. By the way, for any Blogger bloggers who are considering AdSense, it is ridiculously easy to set up if you are using the Page Elements design tool.
Oddly enough, the first ad I saw on this blog was for pizza. That's more proof that Google knows everything about us, even our dietary preferences.
