As many of you notice, I don't take advertising. There are many reasons for this. First, I don't want to beholden to advertisers. I don't want to hold my tongue if an advertiser does something I disagree with want to write a blog post on it.
I also think the advertising slows up the loading of the web page and with my 150 year old computer, I need all the speed I can get. Kind of like my 150 year old body.
Finally, I don't want commercials that Google puts on my web page. For instance, I found this advertisement on my friend, Jamie Greenlee's liberal blog, the Greenlee Gazette:
Mitt Romney For President
It's Time To Replace Rhetoric With Recovery. Find Polling Places Here.
Jamie is a kind hearted liberal who just has another point of view, a view I disagree with. You can find Romney ads on many liberal blog sites just as Obama advertises on several conservative web sites. Most of these web sites don't have a choice of what commercials that end up on their blogs- Google- if a blogger uses Blogspot- makes that decision.
So, I can do what capper does on his web site and beg for donations via Pay Pal or just remain commercial free and since I have no idea what a Pay Pal is, I'll go with being commercial free.
