Blog Ads

Posted By on Fri, Mar 17, 2006 at 6:25 AM

Well, as you've probably noticed, 802 Online has its first non-Seven Days ad up in the right-hand corner of the site... not sure I like that placement, but not sure I don't.

The Association of Alternative Newsweeklies created a Blog Ads account for its member-papers with blogs, and we joined in. The way I understand it, anybody can place ads through this service on any of the blogs run by AAN's member papers. For a list of those sites, see altweeklies.com. Scroll down — it's in the left-hand sidebar.

My first advertiser is N. Todd Pritsky, of Dohiyi Mir, and his photographer friends. They take some wicked good pictures they'd like to sell you. I won't make it a practice of promoting my ads in my blog posts, but I wanted to raise this as a topic of conversation, because I've heard some people voice opposition to having ads here, and I wanted to give folks a chance to sound off in the comments.

Also I wanted to give these folks some more exposure, since the ad's links don't seem to be working... hmmm. We'll have to work out the kinks. Clicking on the pic in the upper right-hand corner should take you to Winding Roads Visual Arts. Thanks, N. Todd and friends, for your support.

UPDATE: Looks like the ad link is fixed.
