Happy New Year's Eve!
Thus far I have not done a lot of paid advertising for my Etsy shop or blog. I am planning to start doing more in 2012 and have been rounding up advertising links for a while. I have mainly focused on blog advertising. If anyone of you have had good (or bad) experiences advertising on any blogs (whether or not they are on this list) or any other sites, such as Craftopolis, Craftcult, etc., please share those experiences in the comments.
One of the ways that you can help me advertise is my purchasing from my Etsy shop and/or buying an advertising spot on my blog. Those funds help me purchase ads. An additional way to help me advertise is to trade an ad spot with me. If you offer advertising on your blog and want to exchange ads, let me know. I am always willing to consider this.
As I know there are at least a few other readers looking for new advertisement opportunities for the new year, I thought I'd share my advertising findings thus far. There are many many blogs out there that offer advertising, but these are some of my favorites. Also, many of them are aimed at crafting/DIY/handmade so they are a good fit for many of my readers. The costs for these ad opportunities vary widely with everything from $1 per month to over $300 per month. There is something for just about every budget.
I've linked the advertisement info for each blog. Click the links to see prices and contact information.
See you in 2012!
