Time for a bit of shameless self-promotion. Have you noticed the new Advertising page up on the top menu bar? Well, my computer is making a horrendous crunchy sound lately (and no computer means no blog), so let me give you guys a quick sales pitch.
You can now advertise on my blog! I’m using Passionfruit to organize the ads, and I’m currently offering 10% off all ad spots with the code “bloglove”. All ads appear on the sidebar, where I have a few samples up to demonstrate the sizes offered. Feel free to email me for some site stats if you’re interested, or click on the Advertising page to set up an ad through Passionfruit. (It’s a really easy and secure process, I swear.)
Not interested in ads? I’m also open to writing sponsored posts or product reviews. Topics that are relevant to me and this blog include anything related to: photography, being an expat/traveler, pregnancy, and Central Asia. I don’t express it much on this blog, but I’m also obsessed with design blogs and handmade/indie businesses and would love to support those as well (like my brother-in-law’s furniture business, Fast Industries). And since this is a new step for me and my relatively small blog, I’m open to doing ad swaps.
Things that are most definitely not relevant to this blog include gambling, vague and unspecified text links, or any article you’d like to sell me from some sketchy-sounding network of writers.
End sales pitch! Believe me, I recognize how tacky it probably sounds to post this, but I’ve been writing and maintaining Ivory Pomegranate for over three years(!!!) now and I just wanted to let you guys know about this new thing I’m trying out. Get in touch with me if you’re interested and I promise this will be the only time I take up a precious blog post with ad requests!
