Dr. Max Sells Out

Yes it's true! If you look to the right, just under archives, the good folks at Google are now providing ads to this site.

I spent a long sleepless night pondering this decision, wondering if I was sacrificing my pure blog aesthetic for cheap commercialism. Well, actually I was up anyway watching an Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon beach movie marathon, but still, I was thinking about the vision thing whole time. Except when Eric Von Zipper was on, man he always cracks me up!

Needless to say I gave in. A little code in the template and the devil's hand was shook. One of the first ads to show up was for Homocon, a blog by and for gay conservatives. I know, I know, who knew? There are many threads that go into making this rich tapestry we call America, I just hope this ad has helped the vast number of right wing homosexuals find a friendly home.

The ads do offer a little fun.They are geared to match whatever the most recent content Google's web crawlers find. The Chef Max sketch has given me a series of food oriented ads. Frankly I'm delighted to have ad titles on my site like Baked Macaroni & Cheese and The Other White Meat (that was for pork recipes, not Homocon).

I'm not sure the ads are going to be big money makers right now. Most of That One Blog's traffic today consists of me, Mrs. Dr. Max, friends and Star Wars fans with poor typing skills looking for the Tatooine Blog. But if you do see an ad you might be interested in, by all means click that sucker. The advertisers will be happy, Google will be happy and the Doctor will be really happy, making the big bucks, rolling in it, filthy stinking rottenly rich, living on mean, it will go a long way in showing your support for the unique artistic vision of That One Blog. Thank you.
