Protected by Firefox and NoScript and Adblock and general good sense in terms of where I browse, I don’t even think about ads on sites anymore. It didn’t even occur to me that this, my own (free, not hosted by me) blog might have ads on it.
Ewww! Yuck! … Does it?
If you see ads here, please let me know (presumably only on the site itself, though I have a few feeds that come through complete with ads — which is despicable in my really not at all ‘umble opinion). It may sway my decision to host this myself. Sadly, I would then also have to find a host other than Hostingplex (or whatever the hell they call themselves now), who are cheap and who give you what you pay for, which isn’t much, at least not in terms of page loading times. Anyway, that’s a ponderation for another day.
