The Great Sponsor Question

Apr 23, 2013

We've all contemplated it: (when) should I accept sponsors? I used to have them and I loved them. I really did. I loved having guest posts, I loved doing giveaways, I loved tweeting them and linking to them. But it was a LOT of work. When I got pregnant with Everly blogging completely went out the window. I was incredibly sick for my entire pregnancy. Looking at a computer screen made me ill. So rather than push through it and make myself sick, I slowed down with my online presence and focused simply on feeling well. I stopped having blog sponsors and only posted when I felt like it. And yes, I lost readers because of that. That happens though. Now that my sweet baby girl is here and I'm feeling like myself again, I find myself drawn back into blogging. In June I'll hit my 6 year blogiversary (I've got big plans for that one) and I'm so excited for it. So I'm slowly reviving my little corner of the internet here. On to the sponsors!

I've decided that instead of offering advertising spots, I'm posting buttons of my favorite bloggers. These ladies on my sidebar are my favorites. They're blogs I read every day (or as often as they post) and I truly enjoy them. I want them on my sidebar because I want to share them with the world. I'm planning to link to them, tweet them, or share them as often as I want to because I truly think they are awesome. So take a few minutes to go meet them. I promise, you won't be disappointed because they are fabulous ladies.

And since I love you, I'm going to share an Everly picture. I know you can't get enough of her cuteness.


  1. I'm glad I am not the only one who has felt that way being pregnant! I love that idea of blogs I love seems so much easier then sponsoring!

  2. :) Thank you so much for letting me on your sidebar; I really appreciate it and I love all of your posts, too! Keeping up with sponsors and such is a tough job! I'm finally getting the hang of it, but it's definitely time consuming...especially with the little one. Who knows if I'll keep it up or not; I like your idea much better these days!

  3. I think this is a really good idea. I tried to do the whole sponsor swap thing and failed miserably. It was too much for me and I really think it was part of the reason that I became so uninterested in blogging. Maybe if all I did was blog it would be okay but with work and Harper and everything else I've got going on, it just doesn't work.

    I'm going to sponsor some blogs and have buttons for blogs that I like up on my own space. That's about all I can do. I'm just not organized enough for much else. Ha ha. Your button is up on my blog and I'd love to have you guest post. I just don't know what about. Any ideas?


I love to get comments from my wonderful readers. Leave me your thoughts here!
