I was one of those peeps who kind of subconsciously thought that blogging advertisements (say it the British way-- it's so much cooler) were, kind of, "selling out."
Don't be mad. Like I said: subconsciously. And I've never thought that about someone else. Just me.
So perhaps you noticed a little flashing ad on the side of thee ole bloggity blog--
Let me 'splain.
No, there is too much: let me sum up.
One day, as I drove away with another $100 worth of products at Lowe's, I felt super duper guilty. Again. Just like this weekend's $100 worth of lumber booty (cough):
I said to myself:
"Self, Lowe's should sponsor you."
Lowe's, you should sponsor me. You have no idea who I am, and you never will. BUT YOU SHOULD.
But I digress.
I thought-- "man-- my crazy ideas cost me a lot of moolah. I wish I could. . . somehow. . . offset that a bit."
And you know, that little ad on the right? It'll probably bring a good, decent, chunk of change at the end of the month. Possibly 50 cents or so. Maybe 60 cents.
But it's 50 cents less guilt. Or 50 cents more lumber. I'm a glass is half full kinda gal.
So does that make me a sellout? Are you disappointed? Would you judge me? Do you mind? Is this enough questions for you???
Thanks for listening. And answering.
