Should you? Well if ‘painless and easy to do’ are all that’s holding you back, then go for it. I did.
After years (yes, years) of not liking ads on this site and even writing about them back in 2011 under the title WordPress Adds the Tackiest Ads – I finally bought the no-ads upgrade.
What tipped me into doing it was a humorous (well I thought so) thread in the the Volunteer support pages here in WordPress in which TimeThief and Auxclass explained the ins and outs of WordPress ads to a blogger.
At the same time as getting the no-ads upgrade, (well, I was in the mood now) I bought a domain.
So now the original subdomain under which I have been blogging here for years resolves to photographworks.me
I also bought the premium theme Cocoa, but only after buying it did I realise it has no sidebar options (only footer widget options) so I got a refund.
And the whole buy/deliver/refund process went very smoothly.
Kudos to the Automattic team.
So now I am looking for a theme again and I am kind of attracted to Broadsheet, but I will spend a bit more time thinking before jumping in and buying a theme this time around.
I know Rebs from ColderWeather likes the Linen theme – good choice – might choose that.
Update 25th July: Rebs is now blogging at Time And Tide.
