First two blogad classifieds sell…

Taegan Goddard’s Politicalwire is the first to sell blogad classifieds. Fittingly, the first ad peddles the URL

The second is a help-wanted ad from, which I fondly recall was the first DC advocacy group to buy blogads back in ’03:

Oceana is looking for a skilled web developer to use open source to help us in our mission to save the world’s oceans. We believe in the potential of the Web as an advocacy medium, and you’ll be helping us bring it to life — applying technologies like Linux, PHP, MySQL, RSS, and other cool tech along the way. If you love open source and want to make a real difference in the world instead of just grinding out cookie-cutter web sites, come join us!

So far, I’m very pleased with the nuts-and-boltsiness of these ads.

Update: Instapundit has just created a bulletin board also.

This ad format is still in beta, so we need your feedback. What would make these ads most useful?
