Excuse me for ranting for a second, but every marketer knows that’s what we’ve been doing online all along. Sure, folks buy major ads on huge sites like AOL. But you can do very well buying ads on small, niche sites too. Whether that site is a blog or a ‘regular’ web site (whatever that means) seems irrelevant to me.
