Google AdSense…is it worth the pennies?

with 2 comments

The other day, my wife was reading a magazine article on saving money.  One of the suggestions that they made was starting a blog and adding Google AdSense.  Each time someone clicks on one of the sponsored links, you earn a few pennies.  Once your account reaches $100, Google cuts you a check.

Yippie.

Of all the reasons to start a blog, this has to be one of the worst.

However, there is tremendous appeal to passive income generation.  I’ve always said there’s three models for generating income: earn money on your work (employee), earn money on someone else’s work (employer), or earn money on work already done (residuals).

I’d love to hear some feedback from you.  As a reader of this blog, what would be your reaction if you started to see sponsored links in addition to the other original content that I create in the blog?  Would you view it as a selling out or just part of the new Internet landscape and as ignorable as print ads?
