I run blog for a public elementary school, and have been using the free WordPress for a year. Today a parent informed me that our posts now had advertisements in them, and the one today was completely inappropriate. It was a VIDEO, and the content was at a minimum rated R and our parents were mortified! In order to make the ads disappear, we had to upgrade.
I guess I wouldn't mind an ad, I know WordPress needs to make their $. I do enjoy WordPress and all the features. It would have been nice to have some control over the typs of ads, restrict/eliminate video ads from sites like ours, or at least have categories of ads to be placed on our blog. Our blog is for children and parents!
So we can pay the $99/year. But we're a non-profit and living on a shoestring, charter school budget. Do you know how many books or desks we can buy for $99?!
The blog I need help with is unitedbylanguage.wordpress.com.
