But will you respect me in the morning?

So I just got the Google Adwords+Livejournal note in my Inbox and deity forgive me I'm actually considering it.

I'm not a fan of advertising but anything that brings in money right now is a good thing.

The problem I have is that I can't see any good way to choose what brand or flavor of ads appear on my LJ.

I'll have to think about this one because part of the reason I paid for an account originally was to remove ads. The other was alternative ways of posting but I can get around that if need be.

I don't know but honestly the money does call to me a bit. Like I said I'll have to think about it...

Edit: One other note - I can't find any reference to being able to turn it off once you turn it on. That bothers me a bit.

Edited again: Embedded crapfest removed. Thanks for letting me know guys! :-)

I'd wait a bit and see if there are any huge bugs with this. The fact that they don't tell you up front how to turn it off makes it more important that you're sure it's working right. I suspect you don't really get to choose type of ad, merely the shape and placement, and possibly the color box?

They really don't give you enough facts to base your decision. Are you going to be plastered with ads forever and earn 50cents a month? Who knows?

Like I said I'm going to have to think on it a bit.

The notes from other threads say talk about being able to turn it off but I think you're right in that waiting is best.

I think this post has been infected with malicious Flash embedding. See the details here.
