Ads On Blogs

    December 1, 2005

I’ve noticed that the new Nick Wilson group blog Permancing is showing up as an advertiser on various blogs and related sites.

Yesterday, I noticed them on Technorati search results. Today, I see that they purchased a sponsorship on Jeremy Zawodny’s blog.

Jeremy’s blog posted on the issue and received some comments already …

“It’s a little odd seeing a bunch of bloggers sponsor another blogger, but whatever.”

“I like it – if sponsors ever wanted to advertise on my blog (which only I read) I’d do the same.”

“My personal opinion on the sponsor thing is “ah, I’m glad I use the RSS feed.””

I find it interesting that some people (like the last commenter) still are anti-advertising on blogs and on the internet in general. I just don’t get it … would they rather pay for the content? Advertising is driving (and paying for) quality content on the internet. Full blown ads will be coming soon to all RSS feeds too!
