I thought I’d share with you all some upcoming changes to the decorated cookie, though I’m afraid I gave it away with the title. Yes. The ads are coming. I’ve held out for a year and a half as I’ve watched my blog grow (thank you all!) but it’s time to take things to the next level. While some extra pocket change will certainly be welcome (and the term pocket change is pretty accurate, as are such things with a blog of my relative diminutive size), I’m also taking this step for another reason… to become part of a larger foodie community. That’s why I chose to publish ads with these folks:
I researched my options a bit before settling on Foodbuzz. I was drawn to that aforementioned larger foodie community I was seeking, their ads are relevant to my blog, and many of the blogs I admire so much are Foodbuzz featured publishers, as I will be, like CakeSpy, Savor the Thyme, Bake at 350, Not So Humble Pie, La Fuji Mama, and so many more…. And that was their greatest endorsement.
I hope you will bear with me during the transition, as computer programming and technological changes of any kind are not my smoothest skills. And I hope to keep all you dear readers as well as welcome more, but I also am happy to hear your thoughts!
