For some of us that's not a question. Some of us like to have ads to defray the cost of having a blog. I used to look at it as a sign of appreciation.
The other day, though, I got an email from a potential advertiser for my blog on Today.com (womenoverfifty.Today.com). I'm a Today.com dropout because I didn't like the way they were always changing the rules to suit them. Their pay schedule kept changing too. You've probably heard it all before.
So, I was startled to get a request to place advertising on my blog. I did take it seriously. Obviously womenoverfifty.today.com no longer belongs to me. (They can do that when you get paid for blogging.) Did I want the ads on my other blogs?
I am really particular about advertisers and for the most part I don't like ads. They detract from the sheer fun of blogging. But my favorites get through because they're favorites of mine.
I answered the ad letter telling them that I no longer blogged for today.com and they'd have to talk to them about putting an ad on that blog.
Then I began to giggle. I liked saying no.
