uhhh what was i doing?!

If you Like Party Of Four on Facebook you may have read that I was thinking about sponsoring 2 blogs for next month to see if I can get a few extra hits. But with Creative Estates coming up I'm saving every penny just to get on the plane. But that's not exactly why I decided not to do it. 

I think that sponsoring can get a little out of hand some times. OK I take your money and then buy a spot on a bigger blog so that person can turn it around and get a spot there and some where along the bloggy line some one is rich!  It kinda makes me crazy! I will sponsor a page because I like what they say, take Ilene from Much Love, Illy. I love her blog so I will pay her to keep up the good work! Does that even make sense? I'm not sure...

Here is the thing. I have huge plans for this blog one day but right now I can't seem to get any of what I need done right now accomplished. I want the over all look of my blog to be a little more me but with my lack of imagination  that takes money. I want to be able to have pretty pictures on here but till I can hire a photographer or get someone that can operate my camera to take them you guys are crap outta luck. 

I don't want this blog to turn into a popularity contest because that isn't what I'm here for. I want to be able to share my story... my life in hopes to make someone else's life better.
 So till I really decide where this bad boy is heading... I guess I will keep my money in my pockets.{or not ask the hubs for any!}

sorry about the Friday rants peeps. Love ya!

I know what you mean about the paying someone for advertisement stuff. I'd love to have more followers and be able to reach more people but I want to do it in my own way and not pay people.

Man, I'm just hearing about the whole advertising thing. I'll put your button on my blog for free. If you want ;) Not sure if it would help though I dont really have many followers yet.

I hear you.

Sponsoring/adv. is what discouraged me from blogging for a while back in October. I figured in order to 'fit in' and be 'noticed' I had to pay someone to get on their blog for a month.

Then I snapped back to reality and said, 'eff that. I'm blogging for ME! who cares if I don't get hundreds of hits a day?!'

This is an interesting take on sponsorship! Thanks for your honesty. :)

I just started a paid sponsorship program on my blog (beginning of 2012) because people were inquiring about it. I take all the money I make from that (it's not a whole lot, to be honest) and put it into sponsoring bloggers I LOVE and have a relationship with - like Ilene, Casey (Wiegand), Nichelle (Vintage Wanna Bee), and Mandy (she breathes deeply). I love their writing, their life perspective, and want to help them succeed. So, it's a reciprocal thing for me. :)

I'm so there. It's frustrating figuring it all out. My best guess is just to keep on keepin on until someone inquires about sponsoring. I can't believe it myself but I hear it's happened! Personally, I love the look of your blog! It's actually inspired me to update mine a bit.
