Goodbye ads, hello pith

rye_wooden_slats

Funny how looking at something on a different screen can make all the difference. When I think about my blog, I think about a number of things. Honesty. Storytelling. Opening up the conversation. I don’t think about cars. And yet, when I looked at one of my posts on a different computer, that is what I was confronted with. An advert. For a car. 

And this seemed immediately discordant with a blog about intentional, ethical living. 

So, after too long a time (not very intentional I know… I’m a work in progress), I’ve gone ad free on the blog*. And now you and I know that you won’t read a post about decluttering just to be marketed to at the bottom of the page. This sits much better with me. I hope it will with you. 

And I wanted to take this moment to reiterate my thanks and commitment to you. That, though the posts have been a little less frequent of late (with other projects stretching my finite time), I am here. And I plan to stay. And I hope you do too.

Finally, with this change, comes a shorter name too: ‘papiermachethoughts.com‘. An added bonus, if you will. The older name (papiermachethoughts.wordpress.com) will still direct you here, but a pithier option is available should you want it. 

Just a brief one from me on here today. But I wanted to take a moment to explain why ‘here’ has changed, for the better. 

 

I don’t rule out all ads in the future. But know that if there are ever ads on this blog again, they will fit with our hopes to live more sustainably.
