Learning the ad side of the business while you have free traffic is a smart move and gives you the flexibility of taking it slow. I was dependent on free traffic at one time and I always felt vulnerable to every google change, which I was. When my traffic dropped 50% I had to get serious about ads. What is interesting is now I feel more in control of my business and less at risk.
