Advertising on the Blog
As you may, or may not, have seen in the past few days, I’ve been playing around with advertising links on here.
To be very honest, I hesitated ever putting ads on my blog. For one, I want it to be MY space – where my thoughts and ideas pour out and aren’t determined by a product. Another reason was that I didn’t want you all to think you were some sort of “paycheck” for me by reading my stuff or by clicking on them.
However, since they aren’t paying me to promote their product, I don’t think about it. I certainly don’t think of you all like that, so I sincerely hope it won’t come across that way.
I have chosen companies whose standards and products I like, that I have either ordered from or know about from other moms, and that are in alignment with the things I talk about on here –
- being more eco friendly
- organic food/bath/clothing
- baby stuff
- cloth diapering
- things for new moms
You won’t be seeing one for Viagra. Or a Power Chair from the Scooter Store.
I will only place ads that are relevant, usually offer free shipping, and have high quality products for different needs and age ranges. I won’t be going overboard with them – just a few here and there.
My hope is that one day my blog might bring us in some extra pocket money for the never ending expenses we seem to have – right now being Bella’s medical bills. I’m not looking for it to provide enough cash for a trip to the Bahamas. (Which I would kill for right now.)
So you can click or don’t – if you are evil, like I used to be, you can Google the company instead. 🙂 But now I try to click if I’m interested, knowing a fellow blogger might have them on there for similar reasons as me.
Of course, if you have any questions, suggestions, etc about ads – let me know. I’m always open to helping you, or to ideas if you know what you’re doing and see I’m going about it all wrong. 😉
