OH MY GOD. I’M SORRY ABOUT THE ADVERTISEMENTS.

That you may have seen at the bottom of the posts, before the comments. I DID NOT PUT THEM THERE. It is something that wordpress has started to do, without any warning, and I only found them by chance. AND THEY ARE NOT EVEN SIMPLE TEXT AD-SENSE ADS. THEY ARE FULL COLOR, SCROLLING, FACE-RAKING VIDEO ADVERTISEMENTS FOR CELLPHONE COMPANIES AND HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE OTHER BULLSHIT. And there’s nothing I can do to get rid of them, short of paying wordpress money.

I might switch to another blog? I will have to do some research. Besides looking good, wordpress kind of bites. It’s buggy and weird and not user-friendly and you HAVE TO PAY THEM IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE FONT SIZE AND COLOR. UGH. Of course if I move, I will keep you all posted!

I AM SO SORRY ABOUT THE ADVERTISEMENTS.

  1. It ain’t a thang.

    When your short pieces, or serialized longer works, are being regularly published in magazines they will be accompanied by all manner of ads over which you have absolutely no control.

    It’s your words that count, not the litter that pays the bills.

  2. I don’t see advertisements either. However, if you’re still interested in moving, you might check Livejournal, Insanejournal, or Deadjournal. They all have ad-free options. However, moving your blog from WordPress is not the easiest thing….

  3. Hey Carrot, I have a bunch of wordpress installations on a server that I’ve been renting space on for years. It’s reliable, and not going anywhere (I just renewed last week). You’re welcome to move there, and have complete control of wordpress (which is pretty great when you’re able to hack around with it). And, you know, it’s free.

  4. I don’t see any ads either. So I’m guessing you got it taken care of? Or the universe was playing some sort of cruel joke? Stupid wordpress. I use wordpress, but seem to have none of the problems most users have because I bought my own domain name (10 dollars a year) and its hosted on my friend’s server. Maybe something like that is a good solution? Only one I have to offer anyways.
