I’m taking a big step in the blog world, y’all.
After more than a year and a half of blogging–countless hours spent writing, editing pictures, tinkering with html, and even shelling out some cash on custom graphics and hosting fees–I’m finally opening the door for this little corner of the interwebs to start paying me back. I’m accepting ads.
I’m not looking to get rich–the starting rate is only $10/month. If you’ve got a small business, etsy shop, or blog that you think would be of interest to folks who hang out here then that ten bucks can get you in front of about 5000 pairs of eyes (that’s the number of unique visitors I currently get per month).
I’m really excited about this and at the same time a little scared–what if nobody wants to buy an ad? And I’ve just got the saddest little sidebar of all time? But I was scared when I started my shop, too, and the ability to make a little money from something I would gladly do for free has been so worth the risk.
If you’re interested in buying an ad you can get all the details by clicking the “advertise” tab up top, and of course contact me with any questions. And if you’re not interested in ad space, only DIY projects and baby pictures, then I hope you’ll stick around and not write me off as a sell-out because you, my dear readers, are what makes my blog world go ’round. Your comments, pins, and even just clicks make my heart go a pitter-patter and inspire me to keep doing creative things and writing about it even when I feel like motherhood is so demanding that I will never get anything done again. This blog keeps me motivated to make time for things that make me happy, and that is such a valuable thing. So thanks, y’all, and wish me luck, because this mama could use some extra cash to hire a babysitter now and then.
