Sorry, I don't pay for the site, thus the advertisements

I received a very strange comment from someone who viewed this blog. I do not see what advertisement they saw. It seems like they just didn't like the advertisement that pops up when they come to my blog.

I pay no money for this site. So, the host of this blog runs these advertisements that disappear after a few seconds. Nothing is free anymore, and that is how the host pays their bills. When I came here to add this blog entry, I had to view a 20 second ad from Olive Garden Resturants. I don't know what they may have against Olive Garden, but it seems harmless enough.

I have tried other types of blogs, but this one I have more control over the posting my photos. Other servers limit the photos to only about one per blog.

Maybe the visitor who seemed offended about the pop-up ad would like to donate money so I can become a paid patron without the ads. I already pay for my other Seminole war web page, and a lot of money to keep that domain. I cannot afford to pay for any other web sites on my shrinking state salary.

The visitor also seemed to think that I don't get much traffic to this site. Actually, I do. I don't have a counter, because I don't really care how much traffic I get. I have my own views and opinions, and if they have a different one then they can express it elsewhere.

I don't know why people waste the time to make nasty comments like I received. Life is too short and I have better things to do. I guess they are not as blessed. The advertisement disappears after a few seconds.
