As you may have noticed, I just set up Google ads on this site. For now, I just have a 468x60 banner between the entry and the comments on the archived pages. I'm going to try that to start with (hopefully it'll be unobtrusive), though I may move it to a more conspicuous location/add them to the homepage if nobody sees/clicks them. I'm adding them with the hopes that they will generate enough revenue over the year to pay for the hosting and domain registration costs that go along with this site. Not sure how much ads are likely to make on a site like this, with my approximate traffic, but it's worth giving it a try.
Unfortunately, there's a downside. The ads didn't work when I passed the contents as an application of XML, which this site does. For now, I just set the archived pages to be passed as text/html. I guess it's not the worst trade off in the world.
