Testing 1,2,3: advertising

I have agreed to be part of a beta test here at wordpress.com for site advertising. This test is different from  the advertising which used to appear on this site (that I actually paid to have removed).

Now I will share advertising revenues with wordpress.com, my blog’s host. The ads are supposed to be tastefully done. We’ll see.

I don’t know if the ads will work on this site but I’d like to hear from you what you think. While hosting at wordpress.com is actually free, you get what you pay for, and up til now, I’ve been willing to pay for certain things that are important to me, like the ability to customize my theme and host videos. I’m willing to give it a shot to see if advertising revenues can help offset the cost.

So I’m going to test this for a few months.
