And now, a word from our sponsor…

Ok…just polling the masses here.  I get a fair number of hits on my blog every month.  My Dad keeps hounding me saying I could put some ads up and make some pocket change.  I don’t want to offend anyone by having a few relevant crafty ads to the side for notions and the like. But, a little extra money – for a family who lives with tight belts like we all do – it’s hard to pass up.

SO I want to ask you all…yea or nay on the ads?  The deal is that an advertiser may ask me periodically to review a product and then I post my thoughts about it.  Strung in with the rest of the hub bub around here…is that going to be annoying?  I have to reveal that I’m being paid to review the product and I get to say whatever the heck I want to about it and I get to do as little or as much as I want.

What are your thoughts here…

Be honest…

  1. Go ahead, I like reviews. I buy a lot of stuff on the web, and it’s sometimes hard to make a choice.

  2. Hey Trish!

    I think that a moderate amount of advertising is perfectly fine, as long are you’re allowed to give your honest opinion on whatever the product is. I think also, especially if the products are craft or sewing related, that some people may even appreciate your critique of a certain product. I worked in online advertising until this past June (going back to school to begin my Masters of Information next month) and I know that a lot of people have a problem with the amount of advertising on the internet, but I think that as long as it’s done in an honest, and not-too-intrusive way that it’s fine.
