Ads on ritaLOVEStoWRITE

Dear readers,

You may occasionally find an ad at the bottom of one of my post. Those are put there by WordPress to help offset the cost of hosting free blogs. ritaLOVEStoWRITE is a free blog, so WordPress has the option of putting ads on the post at will.

I neither make money off this blog nor pay for this blog, so I’ve opted not to pay the $30 a year “Ad-FREE”  premium.

That means I don’t get to see the content of the ads before they pop up on the blog.

Please keep in mind that ritaLOVEStoWRITE does NOT NECESSARILY APPROVE OF THE CONTENT OF THE ADS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BLOGS. And, while I don’t really like having them I can’t really justify another $30 toward this labor of love that is not generating any money for my actual bank account.

If the ads bother you… hmmm send me a check maybe?


Sorry about the ads.

— Rita

    I wrote about this yesterday and posted a poll to see what other bloggers are doing about it, so your post was of special interest to me. It’s annoying to have to even think about it, I guess.

      I wish there was some sort of control on our part as to what kinds of ads were placed under our blogs. I wouldn’t want say an ad for cigarettes or a political candidate I didn’t support to run under my blog. But it seems the only way to assure that doesn’t happen is to pay up. That stinks. Surely there could be a check list of ads we’d welcome.
