Blogging for Bucks - Fugly Advertising

By CG IT ·
Ran across this article

[http://www.slate.com/id/2201325/?GT1=38001]

on how bloggers make $$ blogging. Since many of us contribute to the discussion forum and that's basically blogging, I figured in this recession economy, maybe blogging can actually be a source of income or whether blogging is just adding to an already overflowing river of information pollution.

Personally, like spam, I think advertisers aren't looking at quality of ads and whether consumers will actually click an ad or buy something from the company because of the ad, rather only how many people come to a web page thus in their minds potential buyers of a product. There are some ads that are so bad that I personally wouldn't buy a product from that company because of the ad. One in particular that I find offensive is the dancing women ads. There's this housewife dancing around and the ad is for car insurance or some such rot. Then there is the anti aging ads where anyone with any brains knows the pictures are doctored up with photoshop and there's no cream or balm or whatever that's going to get rid of those kinds of wrinkles except going under the knife and getting a Joan Rivers type facelift.

If advertisers were smart, they would create a community web site just for advertisers where internet users can go for advertising much like commercial free TV programming....

Those Right Guard commercials were pretty slick especially when they had right guard players doing them.
