Reader Question?

Do you mind the Google Adsense ads on the site? If you do not - would you prefer they all be images or text links?

They don't bother me, either way.

So long as they aren't pop ups or videos, I don't mind them at all :)
Glad they can help make your dream come true!

I read using google reader so I get text Ads sometimes. I do read blogger when I read comments I like the way it is.

They don't bother me, and it is immaterial what format they are in.

I read your posts in Google Reader, so they don't bother me! :)

Don't mind, go for it. I prefer images over links. I figure with how much I enjoy your posts, you should get something out of it as well. Good luck with it.

Of course i don't mind the ads - the more streams of income you can have the easier it will be to achieve yout goal of self sufficiency - you go for it!

Honestly, I don't mind because I don't even see them. Ads are so prevalent on the web that I don't even notice them anymore. As long as they don't include audio, go with whatever ads bring you the most rewards for your site.

I mostly read in Google Reader; for a while there were lots of ads in the actual Reader post, but now there aren't any. When I go to the website (maybe weekly), I don't mind the ads at all. I don't think I have a preference for images vs. text. Maybe text, since the actual sponsors are images and that way I can separate them out as "Jenna-approved"?

I don't mind the ads, but please keep them as images. Nothing drives me nuts quicker than scrolling down while reading and my mouse landing over a text ad making a text box pop up and cover what I'm trying to read. ;)

Don't mind at all. Whatever form pays you more!

I prefer images, but enjoy your blog so much I figure you're entitled to get something out of it too - either way

I don't really love ads anywhere, but they don't bother me at all on here. I know they are a source for some of your income, so no problem here.

I'm with Abby. You are doing just fine as far as I'm concerned.

A. I don't mind, and B. either text or image, just not pop-ups or moving images! Thanks. I continue to love your blog--you're amazing.

I dont really pay too much attention to it anymore, just used to seeing them there. So no, they dont bother me. I do purposely check out your sponsers every so often.

I don't care either way, but I'd love for the blog to go back to the normal way when viewing on my iPad. A couple of weeks ago it started showing only the mobile version, and that's kinda useless for an iPad screen.

I don't mind and if you are looking for one or the other, I'd say image.

They don't bother me at all, as I know they are helping you. If they were pop-ups I might feel differently.

Don't bother me. I'm glad you have them.

I don't see them. I think my adblocker blocks them. So it doesn't matter either way to me. :)

thanks guys! I only get paid if you folks click on them, though!

Never noticed them.

Will click from now on, though!

They don't bother me. I would go with images though - I don't even notice the text ads, but I've actually clicked on a few of the images because they intrigued me and I wondered what they were about.

You get paid for views too. Just a higher rate for click throughs

I like the text links. and they're often clearer about the content and what you're clicking on. Too many of the picture ones are just a picture (Ie a bowl of eggs)and you're left wondering "are you a website for egg recipes? Do you sell those bowls? are you a hatchery?" I've found some nifty links. I like them.

They don't bother me at all. I'd even prefer a label that says, "click these links to donate."

They don't bother me a bit!

I prefer picture ads, so long as they aren't animated. Text links I find more distracting because your eye is always drawn to read what's there, I can't stop myself, whereas pictures you can register without paying as much attention :)

I don't know if this will be true for you or not but I don't get actual money from Google ads, just a coupon to advertise for them. I only got money the first year. I'm not sure what is going on, to tell the truth. Google ads don't bother me to look at but do find out if you get actual money.

I think that they're fine just the way they are.

I don't like them and they would be less obtrusive as text links.

I don't mind ads since I don't see any with adblock I have installed on my pc. I love adblock, one of the most useful aps there is.

Maybe I've just conditioned myself not to register such things, but they do not bother me at all and I hope they make you some money.

They're fine. I kind of like the images, but either way, no problem.

I'm with the not pop-ups or video comment. Otherwise, it's your blog but those 2 will keep me solely on the reader and not into the blog itself.

Dont mind yours, they dont do anything which is nice, and they are generally interesting and relate to the blog. Although the one with the beefcake guys at the top today, not sure what that one is for, wishful thinking maybe?

I'm happy that they provide a way for some income for you. I do click on them every few weeks.

I don't mind anything that creates revenue for the farm, and I will keep clicking/ checking them out.
