One of the top-rated posts on this morning's Freshly Pressed page is entitled -- 'Book Pick - Confessions of a Public Speaker.' Interestingly, this isn't from a WordPress.com blog at all -- it's a direct link to the Amazon.com page for the book.
I've no objection to advertising appearing on the WordPress.com start-up page, since it's clear that WordPress need to make their money where they can.
But as a general rule advertising should be clearly identifiable as such -- for example, Google have a reasonable display model here. By contrast, WordPress are today featuring an advertisement undifferentiated amongst the popular blogposts and this could be misinterpreted as intentionally misleading.
The blog I need help with is thepriceoflove.net.
