A reader commented about the ads and asked if you need to click on them for me to receive income. No. I don’t even know for sure how they all work but the way they are, I make enough to pay the expenses of keeping the blog going and paying for itself. Of course, if you see something that interests you, feel free to click on the ads but don’t ever feel like you need to click on them to help me out.
I know the ads can be a pain . . I hear about it often, but with what we pay for internet that’s fast enough to upload the number of pictures I upload, for the hosting/storage fees and for someone to fix the things I screw up, I wouldn’t be blogging, at least not on the scale I do now, without the ad revenue to cover those expenses.
Ads are everywhere – most websites, magazines, even now on my Kindle — it’s something we either choose to live with or not visit the sites with ads. I am sorry that they sometimes get intrusive. I do not choose the individual ads and honestly, when I look at the blog, because I see it 100 or more times a day, I don’t even notice most of the ads. I am able to say I don’t want political, sex, religion and other controversial content matter but other than that, I don’t have a lot of say. I’ve worked with BlogHer for years for the ads and I’m quite happy with them – with the ads and their great customer service.
So . . thanks for putting up with the ads but don’t ever feel like you have to click on any of them to help me financially. Only click through if there’s something that is of interest to you.
