Blog News – Advertising

October 5, 2018

You may have noticed advertising appearing on the bottom of emailed blog postings, and on the blog itself. We noticed their appearance starting with the Sept. 28, 2018 posting. There is nothing SMBAS can do about these ads or “you might like” postings. We use a free version of WordPress for our blog and we would have to pay for the ads to go away. WordPress has always had the right to insert these ads which they say “offset the cost of supplying the program for free,” but they haven’t done so until now. Rumor has it that this has something to do with communicating with FaceBook, but we don’t know if that’s true.

We like WordPress and think it’s a very good webhost (and we’re used to it), so we’re going to stay with it. If you don’t like the ads at the bottom, please ignore them. If you save the emails from out blog, you can delete the ads from them while saving our critically important text and fabulous photos.

We’ve put a message permanently into the right sidebar which reads:

Advertising on this site and in the
emails sent to subscribers is inserted
by WordPress and not by SMBAS.

Thank you for your attention.
