This morning over at my new blog at owlhaven.net I’ll be sharing 10 ways I’ve used zucchini lately. Come on over!
And for those of you who asked why I decided to do ads over at my other place (I’ve heard from two people), here’s my answer:
One of my goals as a freelance writer is to help support my family. Over the years I’ve sold stories to magazines, written for adoption.com, and recently, wrote a book. I love blogging enough to write ‘Owlhaven’ for free– in fact for the past 2-1/2 years, I’ve done just that. But it is something that takes an hour or two of my time each day, and as you all know, John and I are raising 10 children, and we’re doing so on a moderate income. There are always demands on my time and there are always bills to pay!
When I was approached by BlogHer and learned that I could make a moderate amount of income by giving them a few inches of space, I decided to give it a try. BlogHer allows me veto power over the ads, and they don’t restrict my writing in any way. I am giving them a trial and am pleased at the thought of being able to buy a few bags of groceries each month simply by doing what I love.
As far as my reader’s response to the ads, please investigate them or ignore them, whichever you prefer. Though they they take up a little bit of real estate, they won’t be changing the writing on my blog, and I trust you all will be able to see that. Thanks for being faithful readers! I so much appreciate you all!
