I was reading the Diabetic Mediterranean Diet Blog from a hospital computer last week and was surprised to see three advertisements. They were the first I’ve seen in the life of this blog. WordPress.com is set up to display ads only to certain viewers, not including the blog owner on his usual computer.
I have no control over the ads, and I don’t want my information adjacent to potential quackery and other scams.
I just paid the $30 (USD) yearly fee to keep the blog ad-free.
PS: If you run ads on your blog, that’s OK with me. I pretty much tune them all out anyway.
