Etsian Blue Pandemonium wrote a short little piece on her blog Mytutorlist about the choice of adding advertising to her blog, which can be a tough one. I know I felt very torn at first, being the type that hates hearing their favorite song in a commercial. Yet it wasn't hard to realize that between being the owner of my own business, being a mom two a rambunctious two year old, and blogging; my time was at a premium. Value your time! Really someone should make a coffee mug that says this, I would buy it. It's one lesson many etsy shop owners learn the hard way.
Blue Pandemonium hit the nail on the head with the three principals of her ad-friendly blog button:
1. I welcome advertising on my blog.
2. I think that promoting and supporting fellow artists and small business is a great idea.
3. I sell advertising space on my blog to support my craft, my family, or another worthy cause.
