My Two Cents Worth

Just a quick Saturday post, 
because the babies are coming over.
Can you hear my scream of excitement???

I just want to rant a little. 
I guess I shouldn't call it a rant,
just my 2 cents worth.
It's just a little irritation of which I have no right.
I have been chastised on here before for my opinion about this. 

I enjoy commenting on posts that I love.
I love giving a shout out to other bloggers. 
There are so many that I'd like to comment on, 
compliment, share how much I like their blog.

Here's the thing.
Some are just too good, too big, too busy with ads.

I know, I know. 
It's your way of making money.
I know, I know.

I guess I should wait from my browser to catch up
with all the ads, but I can't. 

I guess my little sweet comments (and I promise
they would be sweet) will just have to stay with me. 

I got these lovely, hand made coasters before Christmas
for $5.
As they call me at auction, I am "Five-Dollar Bonnie."
Honestly, that what the auctioneer in my home town called me. 
I rarely bid over $5!

So, take my $5-2 cents opinion and discard it.

Have a lovely Saturday.


  1. I know how you feel!
    I do not follow many of these blogs---
    Hug the baby's for me. We don't have baby's any more.

  2. Bonnie, Some times if a visit the ad bloggers, I try to leave comments and it all locks up or goes haywire. So I just hurry and get outta there. Glad you are having little houseguest. I know you are going to be hugging on them. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  3. OH, I totally agree..
    I blog because I love it....
    Not to make money....
    Hope your grandaughter is better...
    Linda :o)

  4. I don't do ads and don't follow many who do:) Thankfully! It does take more time to load! Love the coasters! Perfect to sit a glass of sweet tea on! Have a blessed day with those babies, HUGS!

  5. Ditto here too. I won't follow blogs that have Advert's or music. Drives me up the wall! However, I did install Adblock Plus (FREE) on the Google Chrome and that stopped most of the Adv's. Have fun with the babies.
    Have a fun day. ~:)

  6. I definitely agree, Bonnie. I visit blogs for friendship, not for the ads. I also have Adblock and that has really helped a lot. Cute coasters. I love bargains. Have a great afternoon.

  7. I am with you Bonnie! I have unsubscribed to some of those blogs with ads because of that. They seem so impersonal and I find that most of them don't bother to reply to your comment, let alone visit your blog back. I prefer the blogs, like yours, where everything is real. xoxo

  8. I'm not a fan of blogs who have too much advertising on them...I want to read the blog not ads. How much money can they make...anyway, it's not for me!

  9. I agree!!! And I also agree with AnnMarie about the no responses to comments or visiting our blogs. Time is precious and I'd rather visit those that keep it real! So glad you're having little visitors ~ I can't tell you how much I miss those days. Enjoy every minute!


  10. I agree with you also, there has been some blogs that I really liked, but because of all the adds it just slows down my computer and I have trouble moving around on their blog that I have stopped visiting them. Have fun with your little ones, nothing more precious.

  11. Have fun with the kiddos :-) I agree with one of the other comments.. I hate music! I guess I don't follow any blogs with ads. I'd love to make some extra money but I don't think my blog is worth it. Have a good weekend!

  12. Hooray for the babies! Mine were here overnight last night and spent the day today. This granny needs some sleep tonight, but what fun!
    I don't like blogs with music either, and I guess I don't follow blogs with ads because that hasn't happened to me. I also don't follow the huge blogs that never comment back. I like the relationship I build with sweet people like you!

  13. My dear Bonnie, I completely understand {{smiles}} I find it rather irritating for the page to load and usually end up leaving before it finishes. As many have said, I am there to read the blog, not the ads.

    Have fun with the sweeties :) Hugs to you!

  14. Love those music note coasters, Bonnie. I'm with you, I don't like to see so many ads on blogs either. I hope you had a terrific day with the babies.

    love, ~Sheri

  15. I've felt the way you do, Bonnie, and now I simply follow many of the 'big' blog for eye candy and if they were magazine articles. Magazines don't expect responses and these blogs don't either. Not bad intentions, I'm pretty sure. We all have our choices but I really do feel the same you are feeling--it just took some thinking and then I was okay with it.

    Love and hugs,

    Jane x

  16. Yep. You won't find any ads on mine, sweet friend. Hug those babies for me. Blessings

  17. I feel the same way. The ads take the fun out of reading blogs, so I usually skip those who have ads. One thing about bloggin is the freedom to "pick and choose", so that's what I do.

  18. One of my favorite blogs has become so bloated with ads and videos, it takes ten minutes to load. I have decided it is time I could spend more productively. I am known as Birdie - cheap, cheap!

  19. Know what you mean. I prefer blogs such as yours.....I get to know you; you get to know me and we become friends :) I love it just like that!
    It's now Sunday and I hope your time with the babies was just the best.
    Blessings to you, Bonnie!

  20. Oops! I have ads on my blog. I hope they're not too bothersome. They do serve a purpose for me though. I find that I have trouble reading blogs with ads on my iphone. So, I often have to wait to use my computer to view them.

  21. Hey Bonnie, great topic... I also find ads so boring and really they do bug me!! I do enjoy pictures and when people comment on my blog it encourages me! I think of the many times that I am able to pray for so many that need it! As I know I sure have needed prayer! But the ads are a hard thing for me, I usually stop visiting! Oh wait the one that really bugs me is the one that pops up in the middle of the page begging me to follow them... Geesh
    Hugs, Roxy
