By the way...

If you like what I do and want me to stick around, please consider clicking on the ads here around the web site. I do run ads for a reason, and the difference between what I get paid for an ad impression and what I get paid for an ad click is four orders of magnitude. That's 10^4 or 1,000 times greater. If something looks interesting, please click. I dream of moving this blog on to its own dedicated server, with its own domain- I'm thinking ridinginriverside.org, but we'll see- and I won't do that until the thing pays for itself.

Also, if you plan on signing up for ZipCar, which you really should if you live anywhere near UCR (it's awesome not only to keep you from owning a car, but to keep you from owning a second car, or to just have in case your car breaks down), please consider clicking the little ZipCar graphic in the right-hand sidebar. If you sign up through me, you get $25 of free driving, and so do I.

I should mention that, at this point, RiR has been around for 18 months and slightly over 300 posts.

If you don't mind my asking, how much have you managed to raise by putting ads on your blog? I was thinking of doing it myself, but my secret fear is that a car add will pop up . . .

Chewie- I'm actually not permitted to disclose my payment rates under AdSense's terms and conditions, so I certainly won't do so in such a public forum. AdSense doesn't sent you a check until you hit at least $100 accumulated, and I haven't yet gotten a check from them- it's not exactly a huge revenue stream. I'm hopeful, though, that I can pay for domain and hosting in a year or two.

I see. Good luck!
