Thoughts On Sponsorship.

Couple of things here.
Well not really a couple, mainly just one.
I’m changing up my sponsorship options slightly.
And by slightly, I really mean I am just limiting how many spots I offer.
When I go to sponsor a blog, I pay attention to four things.  

1.    BIG ad spaces. I’m paying money for that sucker.
If it’s a tiny little miniscule ad space, what’s the point?
I want it to stand out so people actually see it.
Big, bold, and beautiful. Just like men like their women, ha.

2.    Reasonable Prices. Now listen, you get what you pay for.
If you are sponsoring a blog with more readers than your towns population, it is going to cost more money. As it should. If you are sponsoring a blog with less followers, prices should fall accordingly.
I have sponsored blogs paying anywhere from $5-$80 per ad. All of which have been fabulous.
On the flip side, it is important to me to know that I am offering reasonable prices given my stats.
Stats that you may find here.

3.    Guest Posts. Ladies, if I am sponsoring a blog—I want a guest post darn it.
And I’m not one for group guest posts. I like to have their blog all to myself for at least one day.
Call me selfish, but again, I am paying money for that ad with the expectations that I will see results.
The best results I’ve seen is doing individual guest posts for those blogs.

4.    Uncluttered. Last but not least, I do not particularly like to sponsor blogs with a million and ten other ads on their sidebar. Sure, it is great for the owner of the blog and an honor that so many people would want to sponsor them, but if I am the one who is trying to direct traffic to my blog—
I want my spot to stick out.
Which goes back to point number one. Typically, I choose the XL ad space on the blogs I sponsor to ensure I am at the very top {this helps with blogs that have those million and ten ads}.

With all that being said, I got to thinking…”If those are the things that I look for in other blogs when it comes to sponsorship, why wouldn’t I mimic those same things on my blog?”
So that’s what I am doing.
 All of my ad spots are BIG, all reasonably priced, they ALL include guest posts, and as of now-
I am limiting the number of sponsors I am accepting each month.
This will ensure this blog doesn’t get all cluttered up.

Here are the new options:
Two Available
Includes Individual Guest Post

Only 6 Available
Includes Individual Guest Post

 Only 6 Available
Includes Group Guest Post

More information on all of the above can be found here.

If interested, email me at livinginyellow@gmail.com to book your spot for January.

When I say it is an honor to have you, I truly mean that it is an honor.

Love you all to the moon and back.



  1. This is an EXCELLENT post about sponsorship - I agree 100% If I'm paying - I want some quality time front and center! :) And also - if I'm paying someone for advertising - they really, really, really should be in touch with me about when they want to schedule things, etc. I really don't like having to e-mail people to find out if they remember that I sent them $30 two weeks ago and my month is half-way over and I still haven't heard from them about my spot. Argh.

    Okay, soapbox time is over. :)

  2. 100% agree! Thank you for sharing! :)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
