Blog Sponsors?

toomanyproductsOK readers… It’s time for your input again.  I have been approached a lot lately to have advertisements on my page.  I would like to know your thoughts on this.  Some companies have been asking for reviews of products or ads/coupons placed on my page.  While some of these products could possibly be a good fit and helpful to fellow parents, I don’t want them to be intrusive on my page and distract from why you actually visit, to read the articles on adoption.  I have added a page to publish book reviews by people who have requested them, or relevant books I think you would like.  You’d have to willingly click to go to that page though.  So I don’t have a problem with that.  Some other things, like coupons for child, health or food/drink products I am interested to see your thoughts on.  Some vendors have asked for a blog post reviewing a product.  I am not keen on that idea.  Others have suggested doing a give-a-way of their product in exchange for an ad placement on the page.  So… what are your thoughts?
