How Pajamas Media helped those of us who stayed with BlogAds.

Tim Worstall explains why it's a great time for us to raise our ad prices.

Maybe for you guys, but I have trouble selling mine for $10 a week. I have a feeling that raising my prices would be a bad move :)

Your traffic is 84 visitors a day. I sell my ads for $80 a week. If I charged at the rate you're charging, I'd be asking for $1,000 a week! How many would I sell? Even one would be pretty cool.

Keith said...

Fair enough. I'd like to point out, though, that my pitiful traffic is a function of my apathy and sloth, and not lack of ability :)

I set those prices while I was averaging about 600 readers a day. How the mighty have fallen.

OK, how the middling have stumbled.

Bah. This blogging business gives me a headache.

Speaking of PJM, it appears that Tim Blair's departure generated some ill will with Charles. His blog was removed from the "anti-idiotarians" roster. It used to be there:

Now it's not.

Charles should be grateful that Tim is a gentleman and not telling tales out of school. I woulnd't provoke him if I were Johnson.

Slightly o/t. The really ugly mustard/marroon PJM ad looks like it was designed by a committee of heavy-handed Soviet "artists."

Nuanced, it ain't.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a Grand Prix Ace (vroom, vroom). Well, success in that world is 90% simoleons, 8% luck, and 2% skill.

Brain that I am, it took me a few years to figure that out (though I did have fun trying). Dreams serve their purpose.

But in the b-sphere .... I'm thinking the pool of winners is possibly even smaller. Skill is great, but I believe luck and timing cannot be discounted.

Popular theme these days, why one blogs (?).

P.S. Ann, like a few weeks ago, I cannot access your current main page. Only via external links, to individual referenced or aggregated posts. Been like that for a couple of days.

Anechoic: Don't know what your problem is, but I recommend refreshing.
