My Apologies

Twitter
I was experimenting with ad networks in my site and added a 120x600 banner from Adbrite yesterday. I believed I checked "family-friendliest" ads only, but did not check the "approve ads manually" thinking that I set my ads already to "family-friendliest" ads. My terrible fault, and sincerest apologies. When I went to bed last night, there were still no running ads, but when I woke up in the morning, to my horror, there were running ads and definitely they were not "family-friendliest" ads, they included adult ads which I was offended. I worked hard on this site to promote a clean outdoor lifestyle where we find simple joys in our natural world which a lot of times cheaper than most other recreation. For those who may have visited my site during this short time where those ads appeared, please accept my sincerest apologies. I did not mean to put up those kind of ads, and I am offended and humbled when I saw them. It exposed my lack of research to the various ad networks. Again, my apologies. I removed the Adbrite ad already in my site and for now, will just stick to my Amazon ads.

Best,
Betchai

  4. Don't feel too bad, you caught it and remedied it. I didn't see it, but I probably would not have been offended as I know working/researching ads can be tricky and some can get past you.

    No worries and have a wonderful weekend.

  6. No harm done, Betch. I visit your site everyday and I don't remember seeing any of those ads. I'm also learning from you! Thanks for telling us these things. I've been blogging for 3 years but never known ads can be tricky :-) When I decide to monetise,maybe one day, I will keep this in mind. Thanks again! :-)

  7. I missed it, too, but, had I seen them, I would have assumed you did not approve them, knowing you and the type blog you have. You sure took care of it instantly! I think all of us understand.

  8. I frequently check your blog, but did not see it, Beth, so perhaps very few people saw it. No worries. You were quick in taking care of it! Good job. These things happen. People who know you will know there has been some mistake. :) All is well now. :)
