Letter of Apology

Dear Valued Readers, As you all know, summer vacation in the Philippines is coming in fast. As a travel blogger, this is the perfect time for me to visit new locations and create quality blog articles. Sadly, being a freelance blogger means I use my own funds for every trip... and this of course is a big drawback for me.  Because of this, I have decided to put ad placements in my blog to generate some income. Most of the ads are basic "ignore me" ads but there are also ads that are POP-UP types and Footers .  Now, this is the reason why I'm writing this apology letter to you guys. There would be times when pop-up ads would appear or a new window would open revealing ads  when you click on a link in my blog .  For this, I'm apologizing in advance, but rest assured these pop-up windows and footers are not malware or virus sites . They are legit and could be useful to some people.  However, if you find the ads inappropriate or contain adult materials please
