Advertising - Good or Bad?

Those of you who have been with me for a while know that I usually don't have advertising on my blog (except for my own).  I was recently convinced to go ahead and give it a try and see where it leads.....

In addition to the standard Google Ad-sense advertising I also have Amazon Advertising, Vistaprint and Dreamstime.  I use and highly recommend both Vistaprint and Dreamstime.  Vistaprint is a great source of both free and paid for print media for all business needs.  They have a huge range of products including:
  • Business Cards
  • Rack Cards
  • Thank You Cards
  • Post Cards
  • Banners
  • Gift Certificates
  • Rubber Stamps
  • Return Address Labels
  • & Much More!
 Dreamstime has images to suit just about anything you want to do, prices range from FREE to paid and licensing ranges from Royalty Free to Commercial.  Images range from photographs to graphic illustrations.

I've kept the advertising out of the individual posts but have it available on my sidebars and between posts - I don't want to overwhelm my readers with in your face advertising, but instead keep the ads visible but unobtrusive.

I would appreciate hearing your thoughts on what you think about advertising in general and if you have it how it is working for you!  I look forward to reading your comments.  Thank you and until next time......
