# One of the more common spam comments I’m getting recently is along the lines of “I see you're not monetising your blog, don’t waste that content.”

I briefly flirted with Google Ads after moving to WordPress but removed them very soon after.

Although I’d love to write for a living, one way or another, that's really not what I want to get out of blogging.

I just don't want to sully it in that way.
