I have recently had two good friends really push me for advertising, and with their help have come up with a plan. I don't think it will be detracting from what the blog provides to you. This will start up in 2013.
I have had many companies over the years contact me to advertise on this blog. I have always ignored them. Recently, a good friend wanted to advertise and I thought it would be a worthy advertisement. She even helped me figure out logistics. I thus decided to open up advertising on this blog.
I hope you as readers know that my desire in writing this blog is not now nor has it ever been to get money. I started this blog as an easy way for me to help people. I was writing out the same things over and over again and thought a blog would be an easy way to share the same answers to the same issues. I have always had readers telling me to find ways to make money through this blog. After a couple of years, I started my first feeble attempts at adding some revenue to what I am doing.
I have always been hesitant to attempt to make money through this blog because I want the readers to know that my motives here are just to help readers. I could happily strip away any money-making ability and I would still put as much time into this blog as I already do. I really just want to help babies, children, moms, dads, and families. I do think, however, if I can make some money without it becoming a hindrance then why not?
If you are interested in advertising on this blog, please see the Advertising/Marketing tab at the top of the page for details.
Thank you all!
