Kottke does a survey of ad-blocking in RSS feeds, and the comments are as interesting as his post. With Boing Boing and Searchblog and a business I hope to start if I ever, ever, finish this book, I got a dog or three in this fight. And honestly, I come down here, at least given the information I have at my disposal now: I think unobtrusive, relevant ads in full text RSS feeds are just fine. If more than half my readership reads my stuff in a newsreader, why should Bloglines or MyYahooRSS be the only folks making money off my work? And don’t talk to me about client side readers – the vast majority will be reading from server side solutions like the abovementioned, and those solutions plan to make hay on my content. If we don’t support authors, we all lose. My two cents.
