You may have noticed something different about Chic Pixel over the past day or so, but if you haven’t, I’ll fill you in: there are now ads for Play-Asia and J-List on the right sidebar. I’m now a member of both of their affiliate programs, which means that anything bought on their sites by accessing them through links on Chic Pixel will earn me a small commission.
I’ve been considering putting ads on Chic Pixel for some time now, and have decided on these two websites because I personally shop at them and feel they are of reputable quality and would recommend them to others. Any and all proceeds I make through their affiliate programs will be spent on items that will go directly back into the content of this blog.
Above all, though, I really don’t want to alienate my readers with ugly ads, so if after a month or two I’m not getting any significant revenue (i.e enough to buy a cheap game), or if I receive comments indicating that they are obstructive in any way, I will remove them! I don’t want to lose any readers over some ads that aren’t really worth my while. I also won’t be putting ads in every single blog post, but expect to see an odd link or banner here or there when it’s directly related to the content I’m blogging about.
I would like to ask that if you’re planning on buying something from either J-List or Play-Asia, please consider supporting Chic Pixel by doing so via my affiliate links. It would be greatly appreciated!
Think ads are a good idea? Bad idea? Let me know!
