    I did this a few weeks ago and probably the best decision I’ve made! I

    • I never realized that it had grown so bad. Good decision for sure!

  2. I felt the same way about my Postcard Cafe blog and upgraded a few weeks ago. Whatever WordPress have done they have most definitely changed how the adverts appear and most of them are really unsightly and even unsettling. They never used to appear in the subscription emails but they do now! I waited until they offered a discount for the subscription πŸ˜‰
    Almost forgot… Great image on this post πŸ™‚

    • They made it worse; now we pay.. πŸ™‚ nothing’s for free. Never mind; let’s enjoy the photo’s! Thanks!

    Good move – I did the same.

  4. There are adblocks too. It blocks most of the advertising. Even in newspapers, mail, google etc. You can also easily disconnect, when it blocks something you might want to know..

    • Thanks! I use an adblocker browser on my phone; but photo’s look best full screen on a computer, so I decided to present them ad-free from now on.

  7. Good for you. I know that on most WP blogs they’re not visible if you’re logged in but sometimes they are there even when logged in. I clicked on a WP site from someone else’s blog last week and was confronted with pornographic ads.

    Perfect image to illustrate your words and a very good decision made. Perhaps I had thoughts on doing it too … I am often very annoyed byall the unwanted advertisement.

  9. Now you have me thinking about upgrading. Very nice image btw, Harri.

  10. Adverts look bad on WP, but they sure look good in your photo! πŸ™‚

  11. Wisdom to do so – in today’s world everything is monetized and now that WP has cozied up with Google more of the same can be expected.
