My sentiments exactly. A large proportion of my main site carries no adds.
The only parts that /do/ carry ads involved the inclusion of JS code in a
PHP or a Perl script, which generates the 'AdSense bits' somewhere along the
'production line'. It makes it rather painless. The content itself is
diverse, much like yours. It's focused around personal activities, so it's a
matter of what I happened to think/see on one day or another (e.g. in the
case of blogging).

If your site statistics lie in adversity to the number of page impressions,
check to see if something has broken. That's all I can suggest as it is what
I would do if I were in your shoes.
Back to code,
