Kat! Why do you have mormon ads on your blog now!?
I know. The ads are automatically generated.
They’re awful! Have you thought about going back to being a regular blogger? I don’t want to support Mormon advertising on a Catholic blog! It would make me sad to stop reading Crescat.
You aren’t supporting mormonism. You are supporting me by reading- which I greatly appreciate. I get paid. Not the mormon “church”. I get paid per pageview and that income pays for my son to go to Catholic school.
Does that help?
Google ads are automatically generated by the content here and your own google activity when you search. Patheos does not buy ads from the mormon church. They buy ad space from google.
I am still very uncomfortable by it. I think I will stop reading. I think that you are sacrificing too much and can’t be supportive of it.
How is having ads here any different from the ads you find on other sites? I am sorry you feel like you can no longer support a fellow Catholic over a single ad.
Glad you told me that page views up the ante. I’ll double, triple, quadruple hit as many times as I can remember. I’m not so scrupulous to think that ads will poison my soul. As a matter of fact, I get a kick out of knowing that they’re paying, I’m clicking but totally ignoring them.
If it’s any comfort, folks, bear this in mind: When you see an ad for the Church of LDS, then that means money is LEAVING said church, and going to the site where you see it. The less I like an advertiser, the more likely I am to spuriously click on their ad, and close the tab without ever looking. They have to pay more that way.
