Hello friends! Hope you had a lovely long weekend. Mine was just what I needed to get back into the swing of things around here. There’s been a lot going on that I’m excited (and nervous!) to share with you soon, but I want to talk about one item with you now which is that beginning in August I’ll be bringing sponsors back to the blog.
This is something I’ve struggled with—should I do it? How do I do it? When should I do it? And I’d love to share a little of that process with you + give you details if you’re an interested business!
In the last year, traffic on Grown-up Shoes has doubled (yay!) but my blog still isn’t what we would call a mega-blog:) for a long time I’ve felt bad about that and decided I can’t charge anything for ad space since I don’t get half a zillion hits a day and that I would just do my thing and not worry about it. But, as I spend more time on the blog and readership grows, I feel like it makes sense for me, my readers and interested businesses to offer up a few advertisement spaces at what I think are great price points for the traffic that I get. Mostly I feel that as my career is about to take a new direction (!) and if the blog is going to continue to grow (which I’m hoping it will), it needs to make sense for me professionally and financially to keep doing it everyday.
So, this is my official call. Have a business that needs a little more press? Getting your Etsy shop off the ground and need a boost? Whether you’re a brick and mortar shop or an online business, let’s get together. Email me at email@example.com for a media kit and to say hello.
And mostly: thanks to you, wonderful reader, for sticking with me through this big change—and (hopefully) for all the changes soon to come. Stay tuned!
