I need to make an apology.
For the past few months, I have had Google Ads on my site to generate some extra income and offset our expenses. When I set up the ads, I thought I had done the appropriate work to block anything that wasn’t in line with our mission to build stronger marriages and families, but apparently, I did not.
There have been several recent ads that have been out of bounds including an image of a woman making an obscene gesture with the text “Make your ex jealous” and an ad for a Divorce Attorney. There have been no complaints from readers (that I’ve received), but out of principle, I can’t in good conscience profit from these types of ads, so I’ve removed all advertising from my site. I’d rather lose income than profit from anything contrary to my convictions.
I want thank you for your ongoing readership and support of what we’re doing. I pledge to you that if any advertising partners are brought on in the future, they will be hand-picked and will be organizations that share our values. I hope you will continue to read and share our content.
Again, I apologize for the mixed messages or offense that these ads may have caused. I assure you it will never happen again.
