How to report a crappy ad

Historically, I've tended toward native advertising (which means placement we sell ourselves, like Offbeat Bride's Vendor Guide listings or vendor spotlights)… but these days we're shifting more toward serving up ads delivered by ad networks (banners that are sold and delivered by third party companies). What this means for y'all, the Offbeat Empire's readers, is that sometimes you might see ads on the Empire that are fucking gross… that we didn't sell, and don't even know are there!

All about those in-image ads

Normally the business side of running the Offbeat Empire blogs lives, well, here on the Offbeat Empire's behind-the-scenes blog. But today on Offbeat Home & Life, Megan did a post about her and my joint decision to ad in-image ads to the site. It felt important to do over there, since it's something we anticipated the reader community would have LOTS of opinions about. And they did… but not the ones I expected.
