I just added a shopping page with a subset of items offered by Amazon. In case you are buying something online anyway (books, electronics, DVDs, toys or music) just go to my EoZ Market page and buy it from there. I'll end up getting some tiny percentage of the sale, and Mrs. Elder won't be quite as upset over the amount of time I spend blogging.
Best of all, it doesn't impact the blog experience, which is what I dislike about most ads.
If I do ever put ads on the site, they would be in their own dedicated column. I will never do those irritating ads where random words in a post turn into links, nor will I ever place ads in between posts. I positively hate that.
The EoZ Market link is on my left sidebar, under "pages."
Otherwise, consider this an open thread, and have a Shabbat Shalom!
