A couple of months ago, I started including Feedburner’s ad network in my RSS feeds. I did it mostly out of curiosity. I wanted to see stats in action, impressions, click thru rates, cpc rates, types of ad units etc.
I’d like to use this blog to also do some good deeds as well. I’m looking into Kiva. In the meantime I’m now going to add Feedburner’s ads into my blog posts. These ads are inserted only below the first item on every page of this blog so hopefully it won’t be too jarring.
I also recently joined Amazon’s affiliate program and where it makes sense I’m going to use that affiliate code in my posts (consumer electronics, music, etc).
I’m going to give all proceeds from the Feedburner ad network and Amazon affiliate fees to a non profit. I haven’t decided which one yet. But at the end of the year I will post the non profit and the amount.
I would really like to hear about any experiences other people have using their blogs to generate funding for non-profits. DonorsChoose looks interesting. Others?
