I am at a crossroads and need to make na important decision regarding this blog.
I have been doing Pay Per Posts (They are the ones with the sponsor tag at the end of them) and have earned a little bit of money from doing them (only about $10 so far). I have been very particular in the posts that I will accept. I don't want to write about anything that I can not make pertain to me or my family. I have about 75 subscribers right now, but honestly I still write mostly for my family. I love that I get comments on those posts, it shows that I have done what I set out to do and that you are accepting of it.
I also have an advertising network. The BlogHer ad network has decided that because I have done Pay Per Post (PPP), they are suspending my account. BlogHer is a fabulous netwrok of amazing women (and some men), but I can still be a part of the BlogHer family at large without being a member of their ad network. I have only received about $25 from those ads, in the past year. In order to continue with BlogHer Ads, I would have to remove my previous PPP's and agree to do no more.
Emotionally, I would love to continue with BlogHer Ads, but fiscally, it really doesn't make sense. Granted, I am not planning on making a living on this blog, my writing does not warrant that. I am ok with that. However, I enjoy the PPP's and I think that I would be doing myself a financial disservice to just throw away the PPP option.
What do you think? Does the fact that I do sponsored posts belittle my credibility with you?
Thank you great grandpa!!
