Advertising Apology

Dear Readers-

I just wanted to apologize for the ad that appeared on my blog yesterday. I don't even want to mention the advertiser by name because I don't want to give it any more publicity. I just wanted to put it out there that it was extremely upsetting to me personally and I'm really upset that any benefit (no matter how small) came to this particular advertiser from my blog especially since I don't know how long it appeared on my site.

I sincerely apologize if any of you were upset by it. I just recently added Google Adsense to my blog and apparently I didn't have the filters set properly. I think I have fixed the problem, but please- if any of you notice an ad on my site that you don't approve of, or don't think I would approve of- I would very much appreciate it if you would let me know so that I can rectify the situation.

I'm considering taking Adsense off of my blog completely just because it creeps me out so much to know that I'm participating in something in common with this advertiser. If any other bloggers out there have had good experiences with other, perhaps Christian-based advertising networks, I would very much like to hear about it!

In order to perhaps counter-act yesterday's ad I would like to put it out there that if anyone knows of a woman facing a difficult pregnancy, here is a loving option.



  1. Sorry to hear about the bad advertising experience. Thank you for upholding high standards.

    Your blog has inspired me to try making a slip cover for a chair that is in desperate need of a makeover. I have been too timid to do so; however, your BIG RED BOLD letters have motivated me to come out of my creative shell " IF YOU CAN ENVISION IT - YOU CAN DO IT!" And of course your wonderful how to's are a great creative strength. Thank you.
    Because you have inspired this in me, and your blog has so many great projects to try, I have awarded you a couple of blog awards. Check out for more details.

  2. Yikes! I have Adsense, and as far as I know I've never had an ad I was morally opposed to, but I've had it for over a year and I don't remember how I set it up. Maybe I should check on my filters.

  3. Have you considered blogher ads? Their great and you get to choose what type of adds you want to be on your blog. Stop by my blog to see mine just so you can have an idea. Also, don't let the waitlist scare you. I was on the wait list too and it took about a month!

    Hope this helps!

  4. I came over from TCB because I have nearly the IDENTICAL sofa as the one you slipcovered. I have been PINING for a new slipcover for a long time. I'm still intimidated, but I may try it. We'll see. But I'm commenting here because, although I did not see the offensive ad, I want to thank you for posting the link you provided.
