Filed under experience, from the Balkans

I had no idea… with regret, I noticed…

that this blog and other WordPress blogs now feature ads…

Please note: I HAD NO IDEA,

Today, I learned that WordPress has now begun running ads on WordPress blogs (without the bloggers knowledge or approval?).

This is what they have put up:

“At WordPress.com, we sometimes display advertisements on your blog to help pay the bills. This keeps free features free!

We only run them in limited places, and we do not show ads to logged-in readers [AHA, this is why I had not noticed!], which means only a very small percentage of your page views will actually contain ads.”

If you see ads, I am sorry. I am considering the $30 fee to rid my blog of ads. No matter if I would like to drive a Jaguar on a track or regardless if I am VERY comfortable in my own skin.

Q: how did you find out?

A: I was redoing our wireless and to check the connection on a computer other than mine, I went to my blog without being signed in… thus my discovery!

Q: are you ticked?

A: No, I run a non-profit, I understand the need for revenue to match expenses (see “Support Our Cause” above), so I get the need for WordPress to need revenue. I just wish I had known. Maybe they emailed me, I don’t know. Anyway…

Q: are you gonna pay the $30 or switch back to Blogger?

A: Huh, I hadn’t thought of that. I will have to contemplate it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Q: are you just talking to yourself.

A: It does seem that way doesn’t it?

Q: Does this mean that the new WordPress policy has driven you crazy?

A: Perhaps, but, it would not be a long drive.

HEY! would YOU, dear reader, COMMENT if you see ads? just to let me and the other 5 people who read this blog know what’s going on? Your editorial about ads and my mental state, of course, would be optional.

Serbia, tennis and Djokovic

From the rubble of Serbia’s past has risen a star we can embrace. 60 Minutes featured Novak Djokovic tonight. I hope it will help people understand more about the Balkans in general and Serbia in particular, but Serbs especially. To see a follow up piece from 60 minutes, CLICK HERE. Hopefully, by morning in Serbia, my readers there might be able to go to 60 minutes website to see the feature in its entirety. If not check 60 minutes on YouTube. It is worth hunting for.
