3. Foodie Blogroll
For those bloggers of you who are 75% food bloggers, this is one that you will appreciate. Foodie Blogroll puts ads on your site and pays you for the traffic, not the clicks. It's a pretty good competitor of Google Adsense. As you can see across the top of my page under the navigation bar, I have a leaderboard Foodie Blogroll ad.
