UPDATE: I am not seeing ads on my blog just yet (I may have to log in under another account to see them). But one additional thing troubles me. If you make money from ads in a blog, then you have an incentive to up your page hit count. This may encourage one to write things based on what generates page hits, instead of writing what one wants to write.
So, for example, a blogger may be encouraged to write sensational things, as they will generate more page hits. Or for example, allowing comments (which I do not presently do) as it encourages people to get into flame wars or whatever, which in turn generates more page hits.
In other words, you end up tending a garden of users, rather than just writing what you want to write.
Like I said, it is an experiment. We'll see where this goes and report regularly. I strongly suspect my experience will be like the fellow I linked to above - after months there will be a paltry check and it won't amount to bubkis.
