Yep. I said it.

I’m all about people getting paid for the content they create, and I am happy to see people strategically place ads for their own products or products that they believe in on their blogs, in their videos and in their podcasts. But the random ads for fungal cream and articles with the click bate headlines have no place on most blogs.

I have been using ad placement on this site since it was created (not long ago at all), and I just viewed the site as a visitor on a computer that is not my own, and I’m embarrassed by the quality of ads I saw placed on my site.

The ad that was placed was completely unrelated to the topic of this blog, it was ill-placed, and distracting.
