Do the new WordAds annoy you?

Ads, a little or a lot, can be bothersome.

I apologize for the extra ads that now are taking up more space on my page. For me it’s annoying. I asked WordPress about them, and the rep was going to look into it, but no change has occurred as yet. No follow-up of any kind, in fact.

I chose to have WordAds ages ago, one or two little ones that they put there under each new post. My choice of where they go. They are unobtrusive and you can click on them if you want to after reading the post (and I hope you do once in a while), but these new ones are big and some are distracting. I wasn’t asked or told, they simply appeared and I don’t seem to have a way to change their location. They are taking up the space where I had things of my own nicely arranged. You have to get past them to find what you came to see! 

I really, really like WordPress. I’ve been with WordPress for seven and a half years, happily. It’s easy and fun to use. I have had a few little problems for which assistance was needed or there was something I didn’t understand so I asked some questions. The WordPress Happiness Engineers have been very helpful. I’ll contact them again about this and see if I can get satisfactory results, because I still love creating with WordPress.

All this to ask, Dear Readers, what do you think? Do these extra ads pose a problem for you, or an annoyance? Would you visit me less because of them? Have you been faced with the same issues if you have a blog here?

I am a bit of a perfectionist with my blog, so if the new ads are not bothering you I need to know, please.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. They don´t bother me. I think it is amusing that one is for Yorkshire Tea, we visited York in January and do drink Yorkshire tea sometimes. And the other is for Trip Advisor, Amsterdam, which is what I am writing about in my next book!! I guess they know what I like.

    • That’s interesting, Darlene. What I see is Staples and WordPress ads. Hmm I guess they post ads according to regions and interests after all. Thanks for your input. 🙂
