Abhore banner ads? Me too. However, as a provider of content, I felt it would be beneficial to both my readers and myself to recommend resources I have personally read, used, experienced, etc, through subtle and unobtrusive banner ads.
I may eventually throw random ad providers in here when I reach my goal of one hundred (100) consistent readers. We will have to cross that bridge when we get there.
Have an opinion? Please let me know what you think.
