  1. Got a question: is there any way to pick and choose what ads go on your site? I’m kinda picky about what goes on there.

    Great site, by the way! I’ll be back for sure!


    1. Lisa, yes. You can go into your account and at the top you will see an option that says Allow and Block Ads. Click that and you can select and deselect what you want your readers to see in the form of ads.

  2. This looks so helpful!! Pinning now. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. I can’t wait to watch this video. I applied for AdSense once and got denied, so I need to try again. I’m sure your pointers will help me out. Thanks so much for sharing! Have a wonderful day!

    1. Thanks Brooke. Awesome to hear. Let me know if you have any questions once you watch it.

  4. Wow, thanks so much for all the great information. You made signing up for these things seem a lot less scary. Thanks again.

  5. This has been so helpful. I am so close to having figured out putting ads on my blog but I was wondering is there a way to put an ad in the sidebar and only have it show for certain categories. I would love to have ads for arts and crafts on that categories posts and then one with products for moms and kids in the activities posts. This is all new to me so I would love any advice you have. Thank you.
