Hey-ho! My week’s been thrown into a weird cycle - I’m off a couple by a couple of days. Yesterday I thought it was Monday because it was my first day in the office after the weekend. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good that the weekend is closer than I thought but also bad because I’m behind. Ah well.
I’ve had affiliate links and google ads on my blog before but took them down. I go thru cycles where I do this and if it becomes too many then I find it’s just clutter and remove them all. Will ads make an appearance again? Not sure on that one. I like being able to control what’s placed on my blog so for now, no ads (updated to clarify: no google ads or other random ads I can't control will be placed on my blog however, affiliate ads/links I support may or will be posted but not many).
On my links tab those aren't necessarily ones I have an affiliation with per se - none that I have signed up for - they're just ones I like and/or support and are there as a resource. I might add a DIY section to that...(thinking out loud here).
How do you feel about ads or affiliate programs? For me, none of those things usually bother me no matter whose blog I visit (except popups – those ANNOY! I don’t like “in your face” marketing of any kind) but I’m sure for some it might. I hope none of you are bothered but certainly welcome your comments and opinions.
I just got the details finalized on one of the giveaways I was working on which means I will have two giveaways coming up for you to check out. I’ll try to post both of them this weekend.
Speaking of giveaways, I’ve won a few myself. I won a couple of books from Melissa at Contagious Health. I may have mentioned this before but it truly was an awesome giveaway. I got a copy Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr (I’m currently reading and enjoying) and a copy of The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions (so fun!) by Celine Steen and Joni Marie Newman. Then I also won a bottle of NutraVege from Bitt’s blog, a vegetarian omega-3 supplement, which we’re taking everyday; even giving some to YS2. And then, I just won a book of choice from Sasha’s blog, Blyssful Health. Since I had the Crazy Sexy Diet book I chose Ani Phyo’s Raw Food Kitchen. You know, to complete the Ani set. :) Anyway, I’m thankful for these ladies and their giveaways and that I won!
Enjoy your weekend!
