Advertising: What to Do? What to Do?

LauraAll Posts

Bright-and-early yesterday morning, I posted my Christmas Special for advertising.

I felt sick to my stomach all day long.

I felt… that squeamish feeling, like after you see a creepy bug or something and you just can’t get the jitters off of your skin.

I couldn’t wait until this morning’s post cleared the air with some innocent Indian Corn! Ah!

I don’t have one single business bone in my body. (Ha! I don’t even have any business cartilage!) So, the whole making-money thing is completely unnatural and yucky to me. Though, I know it’s not inherently evil. It’s just not natural.

So, I’m not sure what I’m going to do about the ad thing, but I want you to know that I will not change the focus, the heart, or the vision of my blog just to make money. (I know, you started doubting me with that tuna fish hoopla, didn’t you?) I won’t manipulate you or make things all about “BUY THIS PRODUCT!” At the same time, though, it would be great to help chip away at the mortgage simply by hosting a cute ad button in my side-bar, and try out some complimentary curriculum products… so I’m torn.

If you have any thoughts on the matter that might round out my decision-making process, please share!
