Great post! I commented over at Lindsey's blog, but I'll toss in some more remarks here BECAUSE I CAN.

There's definitely a place for advertising in blogs. I don't have it (or want it) on my personal blog, but I'm actively seeking it for Mamarazzi (a group blog I'm part of)--if only to pay for the template tweaking we need.

Not to mention that if you're going to spend this much time with your face in a laptop, you might as well be getting paid for it.

There are a lot of obviously commercial blogs out there, but I think that's the California Gold Rush part of the movement. Those people missed the first, second, and third wave of blogging, and now they think they're going to make a fortune with a free Blogger template, non-existent content, and a ton of ads. It won't work, and they'll go away.

And the rest of us will keep blogging.

Amen Poppy! What a terrific comment. I will use it and credit you when I do.
