No Pop Ups. No Ads.



Today I have finally begun unsubscribing from Blogs that feature Pop Ups, Ads and weird Follow requests that no amount of scrolling provides escape. As a person with a Visual Impairment it is almost impossible for me to read your blog posts with Ads and Pop Ups obscuring the text. Either make a plain Jane vanilla blog or insert something that will read the blog post for those with vision problems. It is not worth my while to be frustrated. I just unsubscribe.

And No I cannot download any software that prevents Pop Ups. I was given this Lap top back in 2013 and it can no longer accept downloads nor can I afford a new lap top. Now if anyone out there wants to buy me a laptop I accept all offers.

Oh Yes stop putting moving requests to subscribe to your blog. These request block the text and even when I try to scroll away from the request I cannot. The stupid thing follows me. Very annoying.  BTW Put that Like Button on your page and in your emails. I know that sometimes WordPress kidnaps the Like Button but please don’t make me go looking for your like Button. More frustration.

This also applies to writers and authors. If you want the visually impaired community to read your books put them on Kindle or Audio Books. I am reading (for me listening is now reading) to a very funny Audio book using my Kindle. I’m also very Thankful for YouTube because right now as I’m getting ready for work I’m listening to The Holy Bible Book of Proverbs. Why because I can no longer read the Bible I’ve had for years.  It’s also a reason to avoid church because when everyone gets up to read the scripture all I can do is listen to whatever the Pastor is saying and commit it to memory.  Fortunately I’ve memorized many Bible scriptures from childhood so I can get the gist of what the sermon entails.

So now I say Farewell and Goodbye to all Blogs with Ads and Pop Ups. See ya!

  1. Oh dear. I got rid of my MailChimp newsletter popup a few days ago, but still have ads. I will keep the ads, though. They blend in OK on my site.

    I love audio books, too. They are more than a book being read aloud. The narrators have got to be stage professionals. I download audio books from the public library system. Usually fall asleep while listening, eyes closed, to a good story.

    1. Thanks. I wish more people would put themselves in the place of we who have poor eyesight. I can’t tell you how often I get lost trying to read blog post where everything is moving. My eyes have difficulty following text anyway so if something interrupt I just give up and go elsewhere. Also my eyes get tired easily and quickly.

  2. I hope mine doesn’t have any of those! I sure don’t like to see them. Another thing is the tiny typing print. I have to pass on those kind, as I have glaucoma, and can barely read the bigger print.

  3. Those ads don’t go away! I have tried to read blogs with ads and even though I try (key word: try) to scroll down, the ads won’t stop. Very frustrating.

    1. Thanks. That’s why I’m going to stop trying to read those blogs. I can’t stand text and pictures that jump all over the place. Impossible for my eyes to focus or follow. Time to unsubscribe.

  4. This is interesting. I know I personally did not consider the visually impaired when designing my site and choosing a template. Thanks for making us aware.
