I have pretty much steered clear of most advertising on my blog. I tried a few of those generic online ads service with very little luck. I thought a little extra income, even if it is just a few bucks, would help our monthly income a little. We budget and scrimp to allow us to live on a single income so that I can remain a stay-at-home mama. But most ad services I have tried just cluttered up my page mostly with ads for products and services that I quite frankly couldn't support or get behind. I was starting to feel like a sell-out for having them on my page at all. I mean, do any of my readers REALLY want more information on going to nursing school?? Ummmmm... no.
After having been recommended to check out Passionfruit Ads by more than one fellow blogger, I finally clicked on over to see what all the buzz was about (with my feet dragging, I will admit). I had been done with advertising for months. I really wasn't expecting this website to change my mind.
But it absolutely did...
It is blogger friendly. It is advertiser friendly.
I was able to choose how many ads, what size they would be, where they would be located on my page, and even how much I wanted to charge for each ad. I get to choose who is advertising on my blog. I can support mother-owned, female-owned small businesses and blogs. And only those, if that is what I choose to do.
I want to keep my prices affordable for each ad space. I am the Frugal Foodie Mama, after all. ;) Each of my ad spaces also come with a little extra social media love. The larger the ad space, the more the love that comes along with it.
To celebrate finally finding an ad service that works for me, I want to give one lucky blogger or small shop owner one of my A Bushel sized ad spots for free for 30 days. A Bushel ad is a 250x300 space near the top of my sidebar (right under the Follow Me By Email button) and includes one blog feature spot for that month (think a highlight of your blog or shop, a giveaway, guest post from you- your choice!), lots of Twitter love, and up to 8 pins of items from your blog or shop to my Pinterest boards. I will even brag about you a little on my Facebook page. ;)
