The time has FINALLY come to share with you all the exciting news !
We (Dan and Abby) officially have our blog at a point where we can help YOU grow your business as well! Deciding to monetize our blog involves a huge jump of faith and a huge time commitment. I LOVE our blog – it is a part of me that I am very proud of – that started as a way to keep track of all of the craziness and be able to cherish each step along the way. Slowly, you – our readers started paying a lot more attention to our space and telling your friends and family to join along in our wild journey. We could not be more grateful for that. Having a sense of community online may seem strange to some, but for blog lovers such as I, it is a dream.
There are SO many blogs out there. I am preparing a list of my favorites for you guys to scroll through and I know that you will be just as smitten with who I follow. I wanted this step to be an organic one. Honestly, as a mother and wife I recognize that my blog has potential – and while that may seem terrifying to me – I know that with my fabulous readers we can all join together and bring out the best in one another. So, we are looking for sponsors!
Our blog costs money. Something some of you may not know. With it not bringing money in, putting money into our space can definitely feel a bit irresponsible. As a one income family – it was an important decision of ours to start focusing on growing our blog and providing our readers with opportunities to help their businesses grow as well. Having sponsors will help us better our content and keep our content rolling into you. Supporting further projects, craftiness and mommy-posts! Our blog will always stay true to its roots guys – so no worries there. In fact, if we fall on our face with making this next step it would not stop me from blogging for a moment. I love what we have created here –
How are we going to do this all while sitting behind a computer you ask?
It’s actually quite simple, sponsoring our site comes in many different forms, making it so easy to find the right way to help your business grow as well!
Ad space – Sponsored Posts – C/o [Courtesy Of] – Giveaways
With as many eyes that scroll through our site on a daily basis, we think it would be amazing to get our readers eyes on your business as well. We are breaking this opportunity down into a few different categories so there are options for everyone, literally. Have an Etsy shop? Fantastic – you could purchase ad space, send us some of your products for us to chat about, or pick an item for us to giveaway to our readers as a prize. Small business, wanting to grow? You can purchase Ad Space for a 30 day period at a time that will live on our side bar for readers to see on a daily basis. Same goes for bloggers, graphic designers etc. We would LOVE to get to know you guys better and get to know what you are doing as well!
Whether you are an Etsy shop owner – local business – a photographer – a blogger – we would love to bring fantastic businesses together and help each other grow! Have a family member/friend with a business you think would be a good fit for us? Send them our way, we’d love to chat! Check out my ADVERTISE tab on the top right hand of our home page to see all of the details. If you have any questions at all – email me at thethomehome[at]gmail[dot]com (sorry I have to write it this way to avoid spam) I can help you brainstorm ideas as to what would be a worthwhile fit for you!
Thank you guys for supporting us! We love each and every one of you + look forward to starting this new journey with you! I am excited for our new space + all the greatness that may come with it!
