People I care about have made it perfectly clear what their opinion is regarding ads, on my blog, unrelated to normal content.
What I may do, instead, is make a better effort to display and sell my photos and paintings.
And I'll make more and better photos and paintings. Try, anyway.
Meanwhile, losing my phone has forced me to re-acquaint myself with my Insignia tablet, and opened up the possibilities that tablet represents: access to email, writing for the blog, working on stories in progress, and other activities better done on a larger system than my phone. I can even Skype, so total isolation is no longer the case.
Funny, how the worst happenings will sometimes breed beneficial change.
