I’m going to start letting you guys advertise on my blog, if you choose. This is for three reasons:
1)I’m blogging more often so you’d get more exposure.
2) Being a full-time freelancer means a girl’s gotta use all her assets.
3) I want to be able to give to charity, but because of #2, I have to get creative.
I haven’t figured out the pricing 100%…but I do know that 10% of my proceeds every month will go into a charity fund. Every three months, with your help, we’ll pick a cause to help.
When I was blogging on Myspace [Don’t laugh, I promise I’ll tell you the story behind this], I got the idea to do an online auction. 24 hours. Purely using the blog and items that other bloggers contributed to the auction. My first one raised about $1000 back in 2006. Three months later, the second one raised over $1500.
All in 24 hours.
Since I can’t do this right now (I am hoping to put this into effect again in the future. Please do not steal my idea because it is my baby and part of a bigger plan), I’m getting creative.
I will have 5 ad spots on my right sidebar which is currently inactive.
You can rent a spot on a monthly or 3-month basis.
You can promote your blog, business or Etsy.
The first ads will go live in April.
If you’re interested, or know someone who would be, please e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
& Spread the word.
It’s a win-win for everyone.
I’ll take suggestions for the first charity in this blog.
