Sponsored Posts – another WordPress Disappointment

WordPress is currently in the process of testing what they are terming ‘sponsored posts’. It is not enough that our WordPress blogs have advertising, but now someone else’s post will be displayed in the middle of my blog.

Of course this is not happening if you have a paid WordPress account – it appears this is only for free accounts. No control is given to the blog ‘owner’ on the content of these

I could certainly move my blog or pay to host it here with WordPress, but not everyone can afford this.

It is another disappointing step after the block editor debacle. You can read their FAQ here.

HO HO HO – Merry Christmas.
