the blog is great, but why you started to use adsense again? it looks like you want to sell me something.

affiliatelinks on books is ok, but why adsense too? makes no sense.

It is part of my plan to create a self-funding referral system.   If I can generate revenue from traffic, then pass that revenue on to successful conversions to BitShares users then we can reach more people.   

Also, if there are no Ads then people suspect something else.  I will probably create a blog post about my strategy in time.

How much is the revenue from the current AD ?

Right now about $55 for 3 weeks, but Ad Sense has only been there for 24 hours and has earned about $1... $30 per month.    So at todays traffic levels it is a mere $100 per month; however, my plan is to grow the traffic to be 10 to 100x what it is getting right now which should ultimately produce $10,000 per month.

Can you post a link after every blog to discussion topic in our forum (like https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=13065)? It's will replace comments engine and bring us new valuable users.

Probably we need to create dedicated group for your blog discussion topics at our forum.

Have you used adsense before?

I have a blog with 1000 organic visitors per day and adsense was generating around $50 / month, so I just gave up using it.

Problem is, tech geeks hate adverts and are clinically unable to click on them, making this a non stater for my programming/tech oriented blog.

Just my 2p.

the blog should just be its own delegate, vote yourself in that way it stays free in an unfree world.

This blog post has considerable basic spelling errors. Perhaps consider writing your article in a proper editor in paragraphs?

Indeed I'm surprised no one's fixed that yet! @bytemaster I made a pull request on github for some corrections.

I don't like the ad based model of the Internet. Why not go with micropayments? Why use ads?

I predict that this would bring strong criticism. People would start arguing about centralization of voting power and delegates leading to use of propaganda.

Until the use of micropayments is commonplace, wouldn't this create too much of a barrier between bytemaster's thoughts and the intended audience?

@bytemaster

I'm very pleased to see from you a recommended reading list. I have for some time wished for this, but didn't suggest it earlier because I didn't want to waste (or waist  :P ;)) your time.

It's even better than getting music recommendations from one's favorite musician, because this stuff's more fundamentally important (I think?).

Thank you for taking the time to produce this. Now I need to find the time to read some of them.

I hope others will find your list as beneficial as I expect to.

By the way, how have you ordered the list?
