Just for grins and giggles, I went to see how much I’ve earned from scribefire thus far — $0.23 cents — they’ve determined that 218 impressions have been viewed.
That said, I’m currently at about 1520 views for the last three weeks. I did the scribefire on the 25th, I’ve had ~400 views (according to wordpress) since then. I expect that a good bit of the traffic is feed related (hence no ads), but still, as an experiment, it means that at my current rate of views I make $1/month, which is 20% of my hosting fee — that said, I’d like to plug my provider, DrakNet
(if you click on that link and sign up, I do get an affiliate fee). They’ve been simply wonderful to work with. Their tech support is great and they really are friendly and go the extra mile. I can’t recommend them more highly. Additionally, they are carbon neutral, if you’re into that sort of thing.
