I just learned that my blogs sometimes have ads on them. I never knew because I’ve never seen them. They only show up if you aren’t logged in as a WordPress user. I didn’t put those ads there. I didn’t make money from them. They were put there by WordPress because I don’t pay for my blogs. They are all free.
It really bothered me to find out, and I don’t want any distractions, like ads, for your kids during school, so I just went ahead and paid to have them removed for the year. I have gotten $35 in donations and it cost $30 to remove the ads, so I did it. If I’m able to, I will keep them off in the future as well.
