In 2013, I decided to start offering sponsorships. Back then it was kind of the done thing and I suppose I was emulating all these other bloggers I admired. But over time, things have changed and I've decided to stop offering sidebar advertising.
Instead, I'm trying something new. Each month, rather than my usual Sponsor Shoutout, I will choose a blogger I love and write a post to share the love. Like a Blogger of the Month kind of arrangement. There's no particular criteria for the blogs I'll be choosing, although I'll favour smaller ones.
If you've already booked an ad spot, don't panic! I'll still be including your ad in my sidebar and writing my sponsor posts as usual. I just won't be taking in any new orders.
I'm super excited about this. It feels like a much fairer way to give support to the many wonderful bloggers out there... and it also means I get to discover a whole load more! Please send me the links of any and all blogs I should be reading!
