Thanks everyone for your input on if I should start taking on blog sponsors and ads. Your opinion really helped me in my decision! I decided the best way to do this would be to add a new page to my blog. The new page can be found in the menu under Reviews. I have sub-menu drop downs that you can chose to go to the Book Reviews or the Product Reviews. The first sponsored review I did is for a company called VivoPrint. They offer custom photo products. Check them out and take advantage of the 30% off coupon code. Now I’ll return to regular scheduled adoption blogging. Have a great day and thanks again for your feedback!
OK 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?
