new ideas and questions of epic proportions

FREE - a wonderful word. But is anything free?
For now, yes. Read on...

Because I've developed a passion for blogging equal to my passion for creating other, more tangible things, I'm toying with the idea of accepting sponsored ads for this blog.

I'm not taking a traditional path though. I thought it would be fun to begin with something a little easier on your wallet, say, FREE. We'll do it for a couple of months - right here in my sidebar. Test market for me and win/win for you - because really, who doesn't want more traffic to their shop, blog or website for the grand price of zero dollahs?

The Skinny:
Either comment on this post or contact me via that little button at the top to let me know you're interested. Feel free to ask questions and I'll do my best to answer. From you, I'll need a button. I'll ask for feedback. Are you receiving traffic? Has it been a good thing for you? There is absolutely no catch or commitment. But...

Please note:
I'll only accept sponsored ads which I feel will mesh well with my readers. I will not advertise things that I don't believe in or are not a good fit for my blog.

Having said all that...why do it? Why not?
It's free!


P.S. Have you seen my giveaway this week? No? Get thee to the post pronto if you'd like a chance to win a whimsically stitched recycled leather cuff and recycled red suede journal cover.


  1. Oh....girl...I am so taking you up on this offer!

  2. I'm game, let me know if my supply shop is a good fit.

  3. I am actually right now looking into more marketing and advertising for my blog. Let me know if you think it fits. :)

  4. I would love to advertise my shop or blog on here if you think either would be a good fit!

  5. Hey Lori, I would be interested. What a great idea! Thanks for the generous opportunity!
    I don't have an online shop right now, but I'd love to bring a little more traffic to my blog.

    I have no idea how to create a button. Is there a how-to somewhere? I wish I was a little more tech savvy, but alas...

  6. I'm a little behind everyone responding since I'm the west coaster but I'm definitely interested in trying it out : )

  7. I would be interested if you still have room...

  8. Oh, I'd so be interested Lori! Your blog is a daily visit for me :)

  9. This sounds like a great idea. It will be interesting to see how it takes off.

  10. I would be very interested, too. But as Erin said, I'd need a how-to tutorial or something. Let me know if you think my jewelry would be a fit.

  11. I'd be interested! You'd have to let me know what to do and how to make a button! ;)

  12. Sounds like a great plan!! I'd be interested if I'm a good fit and not too late!!

  13. I can finally comment!
    I would LOVE some traffic to my etsy but have no clue how to do a button :-/

  14. This sounds great...but I don't know how to do the button thing either.

  15. I finally figured out how to do a button linking to my blog! Wowza! Yeah baby :-) All it took was about an hour!


I love reading each one of your comments. Thanks for your visit and have a wonderful day.
