The free blog service from WordPress.com is great. I’ve used it for nearly four years.
When I started there were very few visitors. Over time the numbers have increased and this blog gets around 2000 visits each month. That’s nothing in internet terms, but I’m pleased so many people visit. Thank you all.
As the number of visitors increased WordPress added more adverts. That’s fair enough, they were giving me something for nothing and I’ve been happy with that arrangement. Recently I’ve found the adverts a little distracting and yesterday I brought a WordPress package to remove them.
From now on this blog will be ad free… oh, except for this quaint British Railways poster from 1949 (courtesy of The National Archives).
