A New Look for the L.A. Daily Mirror

If only slightly. The L.A. Daily Mirror is now ad-free.

I was nearly out of storage space anyway, so I decided to upgrade my plan. Which means there’s more space for images and — as a plus — no more advertising on the site. I discontinued the initial level of ads because they were obnoxious and generating complaints. Some ads remained (they were particularly odious if you were reading the blog on a mobile), but any revenue was going to WordPress. I didn’t get a penny of it.

With the new upgrade, the site is commercial-free.  I don’t have anything against ads, per se, but I had had no say in the ads or their placement. Nuts to that.

    Thanks for doing that, Larry.
    I can hear Joe Cocker’s voice—
    “Can you get us in free, my girlfriend and me,
    We like the songs but we hate to pay…”
    After all, how can the Internet be neutral if it isn’t free?

    Keep up the good work!
