Selling Out?

Well, maybe I'm a sell out or maybe it's just good business practice! Many of my regular readers may be wondering, "What's with San Diego Toyota dealerships and why would Northern Mama think I need an Immigration attorney?" I know these ads seem strange additions to my usual mommy and natural living posts. Perhaps I've sold out but I realized that now and then a little extra cash can really go a long way. I mean paid advertising is kind of the backbone of media survival right?

Okay, maybe I am selling out and making excuses for my weaknesses. I have turned down paid ads in the past and will continue to do so when I felt they were inappropriate or represent clients of ill repute but why turn down a pay cheque from a reputable company? Be assured I will not stop my regular posts, nor will they be the norm, and these advertising posts will never interfere with my usual ramblings you've grown to love....don't hate me because I through in a post or two about mobile connection management {whatever the heck that is?!}

Just know that I will always continue to be completely honest about whether something is a paid advertisment, or a review based on a product I have received! Yes, full disclosure is my motto and if you ever have questions or concerns be sure to ask:) I'm still just me folks and my blog will always strive to represent that!

~Okay you caught me I was paid to add a text link to this post! You can hate me now:(
Full disclosure, right? LOL~ oh is the print small enough lol?

  1. Your site is great Angela! You should be proud that places want to advertise on here!

  2. Why not get paid for something you do? I also have paid ads on my blog - I just do my best to make sure they're products I can endorse or are at the very least relevant to my content.
    It will never make us rich but a few extra dollars here and there is a small reward for all the work that goes into a blog :)

  3. that was a pretty impressive usage of the mobile connection management link in your post! lol

  4. Thanks ladies:) I suppose writing about things I wouldn't normally just makes me feel a bit inauthentic but I feel I owe it to my kids and hubby too to make a little money on this endevour that often takes time away from them.

    Thanks shannon lol! Kind of a cheater way to use the link I know but heck, how the hell do you use it "organically" in a regular post LOL;)

  5. Shannon is right, smooth incorporation of the the link into your blog. Getting paid to do what you love? There's no harm in that!
