No More Ads

I paid for the ‘no Ads’ upgrade. No ads, no brainer. It cost almost nothing more than the cost of the domain. So that is done for a year.

The ads have been screaming at me for months. Screaming quietly, so you may not have heard them.

Actually, this is their second or third bout of screaming. I thought it was all bluster, and I ignored them. But the sight of them started to jangle and I submitted.

It’s a funny thing, is it not, this new economy of being given something for free but with an annoying bit tacked on. And you pay to get rid of the annoying bit. It’s clever, isn’t it?

For Those Who Are Not Familiar With How WordPress.com Works

for those who are not familiar with the ‘system’ I should explain how ads work on WordPress.com sites.

This site is hosted with WordPress.com and after some or all of my posts there are ads that only people who are NOT logged in to WordPress.com see. [I ranted about it here a couple of years ago.]

I don’t want ads after the posts on my site so I paid WordPress.com to remove the ads on my site that visitors would otherwise see.

WordPress offer a range of plans that you can see here: WordPress Plans, but this – at a glance – is what they offer.

  1. I know what you mean about the ads. When I am logged onto WordPress and look at my own site, WordPress adds a message at the bottom of each post: “Occasionally, some of your visitors may see an advertisement here. You can hide these ads completely by upgrading to one of our paid plans.” So, I will upgrade to no ads eventually. Really, whether it is the Personal Plan ($4CAD a month) or the Premium Plan ($11CAD a month) it really is pretty cheap entertainment value!
