If you subscribed to my blog through an RSS reader you will notice an advertisement at the bottom of this post.

That’s because I’m testing the RSS Room of the The Lounge advertising network: it’s creator James Avery unveiled the RSS Room it only a few days ago and in the next weeks it will be a test period and will show only Lounge related ads.

For people that are reading this post from my blog, here is how it appears on the RSS reader:


I’m still tuning it in order to be less intrusive as possible for people reading it with online readers, so let me know what you think of it.

If you encounter any issues with the RSS feed, please report them to me and I’ll forward them to James.

The post looks good in FeedDemon. I like that the advertisment is in a box that sets it apart from the content.
It's also a plus that James screens the advertisers so that I know that it's most likely worth looking into.

That's the thing I like the most of The Lounge: I'm sure ads are really relevant for the readers, not just some automatic matching done by Google
