Notice any thing new?

You should, and no, it isn't my attempt to make a buck off of my fellow classmates. I had an idea this morning, and I need your input on it.

For those of you familiar with google AdSense, this is old news, but for those of you who think you don't know what it is, read on. Google will let you place sponsored ads on pages, and then pay you according to number of views, clicks, blah, blah. Here's my thought; I assume that money will be needed for the 10 Year. I will track and donate any and all revenue generated by this page to the reunion fund. Why not let google pay for a bit of our party? They are certainly willing.

If you see something that interests you, click on it. More revenue is generated that way. Also, you'll notice the google search is at the top of the page now. Revenue is also generated when you search from this page, so if you're going to google something, why not do it from here? Again, it will help with reunion funding.

Lastly, it does take a while to accumulate money this way, but with over a year to go I think we can raise a chunk. Then again, maybe I'm crazy, I guess we'll see. But my final thought was this; this page averages around 10 hits a day, weak I know, but I'm going to try to bring on some entertaining things to encourage higher traffic. If you are willing, and I promise, I won't be offended if you are not, I can email you some HTML to post on your own blog or page. There are 64 links to blogs and websites on this page if I counted right, if each blog had one ad on it, and averaged one view a day, that would generate 6 times as much revenue as this blog alone. Like I said if you're not in, no big deal. If you are in, email me:
I'll send you some HTML and walk you through the posting process.

Really the end now. Here's the reason to let all of the ads be run through one account; Google does not pay anything out until you generate $15 in revenue I think, so if 60 of us each generated $14.99 by the time the reunion came around, we get nothing, but if it all goes on one account, we get $900 or so.

So give your input; good idea? or pipe dream?

By the way

This site has had 2,456 visits since i installed the counter. I know, the forum probably has like infinity by now, but i just thought you would like to know. Oh, and by the way again, who is checking this page at midnight? I know you're out there. I'll be the buzz-killing responsible adult in the room, Go to bed! If your life is crazy like most peoples you should have been asleep an hour and a half ago. Although I must admit, midnight is not nearly as perplexing as the 2am and 4 am visitors. Who knows? probably crawlers.

You spoke, I obey.

The blog will continue, with some updating. No promises this time, they just make me feel retarded when i don't get them done. Please enjoy whatever randomness may manifest itself here.
