Kate has already alluded to this discussion with her post, "A Comment about our Advertisers". She has advertisers who work directly with her rather than using blog-ads. This way the page loads faster and she has more control over ad content.
I tried blog-ads for a while, but took them off for that very reason. I didn't particularly want my site being used to direct readers to a link where you could watch Godzilla fart!
Paypal is another option.
Some people just use blogs as a method to vent, influence opinion or escape boredom. However, others are looking to make some cash.
I'm just interested in hearing from anyone who has opinions and/or suggestions in this regard. Thanks in advance for your input!
