Unwanted audio ads

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey , the world's leading questionnaire tool.
A few people have told me that they have heard audio ads when visiting this blog. This makes my heart cry and I don't know why it's happening. Please answer the question above so I can get a better idea of how widespread this problem is. If you have any suggestions for what might be causing this, let me know in the comments or by direct email. Thanks.

I answered No, but I usually just read this on Feedly. But then again, I've been checking back onto your actual website to read your thoughts on Downton Abbey (I'm behind on the series, so with each episode, I look forward to looking up your post!), and those haven't had audio ads... Hope that's helpful!

I usually am on my phone when I read your blog, but when I am on my actual laptop I haven't had any problems with audio ads that I've noticed. Good luck getting this figured out!

I'm a bit concerned that I answered "yes" and yet it didn't count my response. I feel discriminated against.

I use either Bloglovin' or Feedly on my phone and haven't heard anything, but my sound is usually off. However, I have been typing in your URL to check back in and I turned my sound up and haven't heard any audio ads either.

I read on an actual computer using firefox, and I have AdBlocker Plus. Never heard an ad here. I love adblocker...it takes away the ads on cnn and youtube and other video sites.

....I'm really wondering if it's a Chrome thing.

p.s. a google search tells me that it might be malware on my computer that causes this. I'll run a scan and see.

Hmm, very helpful. With only 5 out of 45 reporting audio ads, it makes me more hopeful that it is an issue on the side of the user and not this blog. I'm so sorry for anyone who has come here and had an audio ad suddenly start to play!
