My apologies

I’ve just discovered that WordPress is putting ads on my blog without my permission.  I can’t see them myself, so I don’t know how irritating they are or how long they’ve been there.

If they’ve bothered you, would you let me know?

WordPress is demanding $30 a year to remove the ads.  I’m trying to gauge how many people are bothered by them and whether I should cough up the cash.

Very unhappy about this.

    I didn’t notice them until you pointed them out. My brain just ignores things like that. They don’t bother me at all.


  2. I see them so often on other blogs that I pay no mind to them. I follow this pretty conservative blog on Blogger and one day he had ads for Obama. (He had no idea.) Other people got upset and stopped following him. I didn’t care and continued to follow. Sometimes just letting folks know the scoop makes a difference.

      That’s exactly what I’m worried about: that people might think I have some control over what’s advertised on my blog — and they might be offended. I’m not sure they could advertise anything that would actually be appropriate. Maybe Travelocity?

    Loren, I don’t see any ads on this (your) blog. I see WordAds on other blogs and have them on mine by request and I see the WordAds. They really don’t bother me as I see them everywhere online these days. But I can see where you are upset! I want to see what is on my blog!!! If you get any more information, please post.

      Thanks! I got the email saying they would be offering ads if you wanted to make money from your blog, but I missed the part that said they would put them on your blog anyway if you didn’t bribe them not to. Sigh. I don’t see how they can advertise anything on a cemetery blog that wouldn’t be tacky.
