Up until now, I’ve been low key about advertising on my blog because I didn’t really have anything official in place. I did have an ad block up for a while, but I wasn’t that happy with the interface. Finally, I set up one I was happy with (it’s called OIO Publisher and it is a WordPress plugin), and when somebody wants to advertise on my blog now, it’s easy!
When somebody is interested in advertising, they just go to my ad bloc and click on me!
This takes them to an ad form that is very easy to fill out! All they need is a 125x125px graphic and their link and they can pay through PayPal. Best of all, if for some reason I need to reject the ad (like if it is for something spammy like weight loss crap or drugs or something that no cats or cat people would be interested in), they never get charged!
I already have my first ad! It is for an author named Judy Snider for her book Goldy’s Baby Socks! She even sent me a copy. Check out her ad and go visit her site if you are looking for a cute children’s book for a Christmas gift!
If you think you would like to advertise with me, you can find the details here (I have a special listed for bloggers and Etsy sellers there), or you can click directly on the “Advertise with Sparkle” badge in my sidebar.
And if you have a WordPress blog and would like to check out OIO Publisher, you can find out more here. It is a plugin you have to pay for, but if you use the code AUTUMN13-SPARKLE, you get $10 off through November 30 (and I get a commission!). With the discount it is only $37, and it does not take that long to make your money back in ad fees, so I think it is a pretty good deal!
