A little warning on sponsored posts

WordPress has recently introduced so-called ‘sponsored posts’. Many readers may already know such contents from big media outlets; for those who have somehow managed to elude it so far: they look like editorial content rather than advertisements (i.e. like regular blog posts), but are advertorial content created by marketers and marked as ‘sponsored’.

As someone on a free WordPress plan I do not receive any money for this, nor do I have any control whatsoever on these posts appearing on this blog, the choice of advertiser, or the content.

I understand that this is the price a free website comes at, so this is just a little heads up to anyone wondering, that this is completely outside my control, and could only be prevented by buying one of the WordPress subscription plans – which, given this blog is currently on a hiatus anyways, I don’t plan on doing anytime soon.
