What are your thoughts?
I know they occasionally appear on my blog, but I never see them & don't really want to spend more $$ either.

Well, I don't have a WordPress blog.

But I used to have a free website on Tripod. That was fine until they started putting ads on it. The ads were derived from the words you used on your site. When they posted an ad for air miles on the page where I had posted a poem about someone who had died in an airplane crash, that was the final straw.  :fury

My advice is to take a careful look at the ads and the way they decide which ones to use. If they're in good taste, it may be okay for now. And as soon as you can afford it, switch to an ad-free site. (Blogger is free and ad-free.)
