    Hi Anne – I’ve noticed the ads on your blog becoming more and more intrusive (the auto-play video that displays on mobile and takes up 1/2 the screen is the worst offender). I understand the need to monetize the blog, but it’s really taking a toll on the experience. I’ve been reading for a long time (pre-UNC, pre-engagement days!) and love the content, though!

      Hi Kat, Thank you for reading my blog and for that feedback! I appreciate you speaking up. I’ll talk to my ad network about dialing things back – I never look at my blog on my phone (just on my computer) so I had no idea that was happening re: the huge video! I’d be annoyed by that too! Is the problem with the ads primarily on mobile? Or are you having issues on a computer, too? Thanks!
