Recently a friend asked me if I have any control over the types of ads that are placed on this blog. Aside from the shameless plug of my book that I place at the bottom of each entry, the answer is a resounding no. But I was curious as to why she asked.
“Because I’m looking at an ad for Donald Trump.”
I don’t dispute WordPress’ right to place ads in this forum. They have to keep the lights on somehow, and they’ve not received a single penny from me. That’s a pretty good deal, considering they’re hosting this blog, to the tune of nearly 1500 pages to date.
But over the years this blog has become my heart and soul. I like to think it’s me on a screen. Warts and all. And while I have many warts indeed, none of them look as bad as Donald Trump.
It absolutely KILLS me to think that someone might be seeing one of his ads on my page and assuming that I endorse this man in any way, shape or form.
Am I selling out? Unfortunately, free is all I can afford right now. That means I pretty much have to take what I’m given. So I have to content myself with this blog entry of protest and beg your forgiveness.
I don’t even see the ads that pop up for you. I’d be curious to know what types of ads you are seeing. Please let me know in the comment section!
