I’m shutting this blog down. I am shutting all my wordpress.com blogs down.
Because WordPress.com has introduced advertising. I was horrified to see the intrusion into my post and up with it I will not put.
Matt always said that WordPress is absolutely free and always will be. Well, that’s a moot point when we have to pay indirectly by allowing ads…. or cough up $30 per annum to keep the blog ad-free.
I feel abused. I feel dirty and shabby and used. It grieves me greatly after so many years of unstinting wordpress use and support. I feel that all that faith was misplaced.
The current content and any future material will be posted to a self-hosted wordpress blog somewhere on my woolgathering.org.uk domain. I’m not sure yet whether it will be http://www.woolgathering.org.uk/prompts or whether I shall choose to return to a single blog with a mixed content. Anyway, if you want me, that is where you shall find me.
