I have a sponsor!

It's been 2 years since I started this blog. After a few months I signed up with Amazon and started getting "free" gift cards every few months. Every once in a while I get an email from Amazon that says that I got enough clicks to earn a gift certificate. Those gift certificates have been coming more and more frequently lately. In fact, it was a year before I got my first one. The last few months have been great and I want to thank everyone who's used my Amazon store when you need something and you want to get it online. Remember, if you don't see anything that you like in my product links you can always use the search tab to find what you're looking for.

Meanwhile, I've gotten several emails from people asking me to put a link on my blog to their store or business website. I have no problem with linking blogs. You don't even have to link me back if I like what you're saying and I like what you have to say (disclaimer: I don't always agree with what bloggers that I link to have to say). Stores...I have a problem with. If you're in the business of making money then you shouldn't have a problem with offering someone money who could potentially bring you more business. If those people aren't bringing you business then stop paying them. Simple.

Imagine my surprise when I got an inquiry just a few days ago from someone who actually wanted to pay me to advertise?! If you look to the right you'll see a widget for Our Happy Homestead. I've added a few links to some of their products. Those few items aren't even scratching the surface of what they have to offer. They're also constantly adding new products. I encourage you to check them out. I'll be talking about them and their products from time to time. I encourage you to share with me any experiences that you have with them...good or bad.

If you've got an online business and you're looking to advertise then feel free to shoot me an email at artyboy@gmail.com. I'm cheap. I also care about my reader's experiences so if you're a reader and you have a bad experience with one of my sponsors I want to hear about it. I also want to know when you have a good experience with one of my sponsors.

I like your blog and I'm going to put a link on mine. You're welcome to join my forum too. I'm currently looking for advertisers, but my blog and podcast are just a hobby. I do get listener donations from time to time. Your's is good reading, thanks.
