Just wanted to pop in with a quick post to update you guys on some recent changes. You may have noticed some changes in the sidebars of my blog (or maybe not). Either way, I wanted you to know that I’m switching ad networks from Foodbuzz to The Glam Network.
I’ve been with Foodbuzz for almost three wonderful years, and in that time, I’ve seen so much change and growth on my blog. Additionally, since I was a Foodbuzz Featured Publisher, I had the pleasure of attending not one, but two fun-filled Foodbuzz Festivals (in 2010 and 2011). The experience has been great, but, as they say, all great things must come to an end.
I’m happy to announce that I’ve decided to join up with The Glam Network. Oddly enough, Glam was my first ad network, back when I ran Shopaholics Anonymous. I’ve always thought of Glam as one of the premier networks out there, so I’m really excited to join them again, this time with The Chic Life under Bliss.com, which is their healthy living site.
What does this mean for you? I’m hoping to keep the changes as minimal as possible for guys. I’ve implemented a similar ad placement to what I had previously, but I will have additional opportunities to write sponsored posts, change ad types/locations, etc. in the future, all of which I will be very up front about. I will also have more control over ads on TCl, in general, which I value.
I know some people have mixed feelings about ad networks, but I look at them as a positive thing. It’s not free to run a blog. Thanks to ad networks, I’m able to provide all the content on TCL free of charge to you while still covering maintenance costs. Sometimes I even use ad revenue to reinvest back into TCL by upgrading equipment, attending conferences, or doing training to make the TCL experience better and better. I’m going to be trying out some new things, but my focus is still providing quality content. Some things will work, and some inevitably won’t. Please feel free to send me feedback any time – I’d love to hear from you.
Thank you so much for reading and for your continued support!
