    I love your posts and inspiration, but there are so many ads and pop ups it is difficult to read. Don’t know if you are aware.

      Sorry about that! They drive me a little crazy sometimes too. I am thinking what I may do is disable all ads the first day a post airs. That way, anyone who subscribes and clicks over that first day won’t have the headache and distractions. I won’t earn income on those days but it could be a step in the right direction. Thanks for the feedback, and I’ll see what I can change.
