This post won’t be for the normal reader of this blog, unless you are a fellow blogger and are looking to swap buttons and/or links with me.
I’ve noticed, in recent years, small ads on the sidebars of other blogs. Digging further, through sponsor “links,” I see people sell these spots, or they trade spots with another blogger. They also only do a certain amount, and also on a limited time.
I’m OK with that. And if I had some extra scratch laying around, I’d probably sponsor a few blogs. Alas, I don’t.
I honestly don’t want to get into having paying ads on the blog. First, it’s a pain in the rear. There’s a cool site that will help with your ad sales, but it costs $9 per month. If I don’t make at lead $15-20 per month, then there’s no point in it.
And it’s not like I get a ton of hits where it’s worth paying me too much money.
Maybe I’m wrong. But for now, I’m going away from that.
So, here’s what I’m going to be doing — swaps.
I’m going to have a setup on my right sidebar called “Friends,” or “Friends of A ‘lil HooHaa.” Basically, whichever one fits best, I will use. I will take up to 10-12 buttons to put in that spot. The basis is going to be a trade. You feature mine, I feature yours.
What I need — a 100×100 ad (if you have it on Photobucket or elsewhere, that would be best — or if you already have an HTML setup with the link — even better). I’ll send you the link to mine on Photobucket (whatever size you use), and give you the link.
I’ll try and figure out how to do it so I can send you one code with all the info and hopefully it will be done before I get too many!
I do reserve the right to deny anybody on this. I won’t deny most, but any “adult” sites or blogs I think my readers may not like, I won’t use. Also, this is for personal blogs/networks only. I’m not set up for businesses as of now.
That being said, if you are a business and want me to review some stuff, I’m all for it. Just contact me as I would love to partner up with some cool things to review or write about.
The other thing I will do is a linkup. You can notice in my sidebar, I have a blogroll. From this point on, links will be put there on an exchange setup. You link me, I link you. I’ll still add links to other sites and my favorite blogs, but if I am going to do that, I’ll likely be doing a page elsewhere on the site — so it wouldn’t be on the main page.
Note 1: This is going to just be in the sidebar and I’m not going to place ads in posts or anything to disturb the normal aspect of the blog. But it’s also a way to hopefully allow others to find different blogs and maybe have some more fun things to read!
Note 2: To my readers — any time I am in a situation where I might have a sponsored post or reviewing something given to me for the reason of review, I will disclose it in the post. If you don’t see this disclosure on a review (say for books), it means I paid for it and I am reviewing on my own.
