Dirt Cheap Advertising

Hi everyone!  Thank you for showing interest in advertising on my blog!  I'm open to suggestions and would love to hear from you. 

Why Should You Spend Your Hard-Earned Money Here?

Here are my statistics, as of today, 3.30.2011
  • I have been blogging for my family and friends since 2008, but only really put my blog out there for public consumption in February 2011.
  • Since then, I have grown from 32 to 257 followers (an 800% increase in two months)
  • I had 10,305 pageviews last month, up from about 3,000 the month before
  • I'm averaging about 350 pageviews per day
  • I have 62 followers on Twitter
  • I have 55 friends who like my page on Facebook and 137 people who like my homepage
  • I have had two features on BlogHer.com in the last month and have had my crafts featured on three different websites recently; you can see the links here
Update, as of 4.12.11
  • 311 GFC followers
  • 12, 528 pageviews last month
  • about 400 pageviews per day
  • 71 followers on Twitter
  • 67 Facebook friends who like my page and 151 who like my homepage
Update, as of 4.30.11

  • 14,105 pageviews last month (+3800)
  • about 450 pageviews per day (+50)
  • 84 followers on Twitter (+22)
  • 93 Facebook friends who like my page and 159 who like my homepage (+38 and +22)
I have also committed to write a quarterly parenting column for my local newspaper, which will link directly back to "Rub Some Dirt On It", and to do a weekly post for the Upper Valley Connections blog!  I have three guest blogging spots scheduled for the next month.  Big things are happening here! 

As you can see, I haven't been doing this very long, but I've already had excellent exposure and an amazing increase in followers. And I don't simply ask people to follow me back to boost my numbers; these are people who (I hope!) genuinely like my site.

Here's what I'm offering: 

  • A 150 x 150 or 150 x 200 ad placed in my sidebar, depending on if your button is square or rectangular
  • At least one featured post per month with details about your blog and any specific info you'd like to share
  • Facebook and Twitter shout outs about your blog and any link ups, blog hops, and/or memes you offer
  • I'd love to promote your etsy shop with a discount for my readers, a promotion, giveaway, etc.  I'd be happy to work something out 

Everything listed above, with an ad in a prime location, for the following prices:

 $5 per month 

$12 for 3 months
