To Advertise or Not to Advertise

I just discovered that I could form an agreement with Google to allow them to place content-related advertisements on my blog. In return, I would receive monetary renumeration based on the number of people who visit my blog and click on the ad link. My question to you is, what do you think?

True, I could desperately use some extra cash. What single mom couldn't? But I also know how annoying ads on websites can be. Supposedly I would get to choose what types of products are advertised - in my case, parenting, stuff for kids, Anti-perspirant (please see previous posting, "Stinkbumps really....stinks!"). And the ad links I perused seemed very tasteful and blended very well with the templates. But would advertisements drive you away from my site? This site is, first and foremost, a way for me to stay connected to everyone I know all over the country. But if I could make some cash on top of it, that would be all the sweeter. But I won't do it if it keeps all of you from stopping by for a chat.

Please let me know what you think!
