Administrative apology

Visitors to this site will notice that there is a ‘sponsored post’ advertising wordpress services clogging up your screen. Sorry chums, but I just can’t seem to get rid of the cussed thing. WordPress, in what passes for their form of wisdom, have blatted their garbage into this blog without my permission and outside of my control.

There’s nothing I can do about it as things stand. This blog is a hobby, nothing more, and I spend and earn no money whatsoever on or from it. All I can do is apologise to anyone who finds the advert intrusive and say “Nowt to do with me Guv’nor.”

  1. I view your issues on a Kindle Fire and have not been seeing these ads.
    On other sites I get intrusive ads, and if they annoy Fire has a useful “Show in reading view” option which filters them.
    It is also useful when the text is not black on a not-white page.
    Thanks for your efforts.

  2. The solution lies not with yourself but with your readers. I hadn’t seen any ads on your site but I use “uBock Origin” in my browser which nicely removes all advertising.
    I switched it off [temporarily] and there was your “sponsored post”!

    Where’s that then? I can’t see anything. Privacy Badger and uBlock Origin must be hiding it from me…

    Privacy Badger – 7 trackers blocked – pinterest, youtube and Google.
    uBlock Origin – domains connected – 10 of 12. 6% blocked on this page.
    Firefox – Enhanced Tracking Protection on, blocking 3 Google domains

    No mention of WordPress.
