Yes, my blog is officially “of age” for anything that might fetch me a few dollars in ads or product reviews. I hope I don’t alienate any of you…since I already moan-and-groan or loudly sing the praises of products, this hopefully shouldn’t be too much of a change. It’s not going to be anything like
“blah blah yadda yadda my crazy kids, kleenex-eating dog, AND NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSORS!
GLEEM IS GOOD
GLEEM IS GREAT
USE GLEEM TOOTHPASTE AND YOUR SMILE, BREATH, AND TEETH WILL BE TOP RATE! yah yah silly dog, crappy commute”
It should be a little more subtle than that. Or it might be more obvious, though if it is, it will be more like individual ads posted in-between regular articles about my life. This will definitely stretch my writing skills again. Either way, it’s not my goal to turn this into a big Mystery Shopper kinda deal (although I’ve always wanted to be a Mystery Shopper, especially at a store where I’ve gotten chronic bad service). Anyways. I digress. If I wanted a site more highly dedicated to product reviews, etc., then I wouldn’t be able to partner with the company that I am trying to partner with now (I’m still pending approval, mostly because I didn’t read the fine print very well and submitted my blog when it was not yet 90 days old).
Also, there are many of you out there who have ads on your sites….I can’t wait to be approved to have ads as well (pending as well…really concerned about my critical reading comprehension). Again, not looking to make millions or get-rich-quick, just taking the opportunity to grab a little pocket-cash for stuffing in the bank for fun things like getting pizza delivered instead of frozen pizza, or putting towards my credit card bill (that is a whole other post altogether).
In preparation of all of this, I have created my disclosure statement, which you can read when you click on the link above, or just to be nice, here.
So happy New Year, y’all! Hope it is a fun, safe, and prosperous year for all!
