Meta: Ads-be-gone

I’ve just suspended Google ads for the moment. I don’t think I should be profiting, in however minimal a way, from COVID-19, but it was also that I personally get waves of disgusting ads and if I don’t want to see them, I’m sure no reader does either. (I realize the ads are tailored to what else people are looking at, but I can’t figure out why Google has been showing me huge banners about earwax lately. Not a topic I’ve been researching.)

I may eventually put up a Patreon to help pay for the blog’s expenses, but not now.

The Google ads did pay for my server account and a bit over, by the way – but it’s been at the expense of making the blog a lot uglier and harder to look at. I don’t want that.

Thanks all for your patience.
