We’ve always been an Ad free blog, of course. The reason we have our own web hosting instead of using a free service like Livejournal or Blogger is so that we can blog and post pictures without worrying about someone else adding advertising or changing things around on us (like the sudden appearance of a “search youtube” bar on all linked youtube videos, yuck!). But now we have a little badge that “proves” we’re advertising free. Yea! Thank you Raelene for finding that. 🙂 It’s down near the bottom of the right sidebar, below our Alexa rank and above our Green certification.
