Advertising on my personal blog

I’ve been solicited a couple of times to place advertisements within specific posts on my blog. I’ve written them off in the past but with the recent traffic increase to this blog I am considering the idea now.

If I do decide to put ads on my blog, I will use the Google Ads placed either across the header or in the sidebar. I will not put advertising within the feeds, I think that is distasteful and a poor use of what feeds should be. I am sure Dave Winer would not approve.

I’ve rejected the idea in the past because I use this blog to talk about issues and topics for friends and family to keep up with what is going on in my life. Will advertising cheapen that? What does everyone think?
