Is it just me, or is EVERY single one of the ads I see in Bloglines coming from FeedBurner for free text link ads www.Text-Link-Ads.com? I will say that this advertiser is one who advertised with us when I was formerly at LinkedIn -- so probably their product appeals to the same LinkedIn-Web20-blogosphere crowd... the only question is whether I have to keep seeing this same ad over and over again. It's not just your blog, Jeff - I also see it in some of the other feeds that use the FeedBurner stuff like Fred Wilson's. It's a very new advertising medium, so would love to see other readers/users and publishers share some of their thoughts on advertiser diversity and retention/repeat business over time...

As far as advertising goes, I have not found any satisfying solution for 'Serge the Concierge'. I used Google for a while then Yahoo and went back to Google.
I have to say that Google Ads are more closely related to the contents of the posts.
On the question of the quality of the ads, I am not sure either is satisfying.
I guess better solutions will come as things evolve.

For original, interesting, and appropriately linked posts, 500 is an awesome number. Well done and many thanks for your contributions to our noosphere thus far.

I think sidebar gadgets and other blog services are the universe's way of using up all that spare bandwidth, CPU time, and screen real-estate. The void was there to be filled. I've been predicting this for a long time, even had a few ideas of my own on how to help fill it, but they're backburnered until the current project is finally underway.
