Change in Sponsorships

As many of you have probably heard,  Passionfruit - a largely-used platform for blog sponsorships - has recently made changes to their system and as of September 1st will be requiring a flat rate of $9/month in order to sell ads using their site.  For those who sell a lot of ads, that probably ends up being a pretty good deal.  But for us smaller blogs, not so much.  I don't even sell ads right now - I mostly just offer free swaps.

So - I am making the jump.  To Adproval.  Over the last couple of weeks I have seen several of you ladies talk about Adproval and decided to look into it.  They currently offer only the typical button ads, but are in the process of adding other services that can be sold through the AdStore {including giveaways, guest posts and social media shout-outs}.  Adproval also offers more customization when it comes to your Adstore than Passionfruit does, and charges 10% on any sales proceeds. 

If you go to my sponsor page now, you will see the new Adstore, and notice that I now have a couple of options.  These will likely change in the nearish future, as I am contemplating updating my sponsor options.  If you have already signed up for a swap through my Passionfruit shop, your ad will remain on the sidebar until September 1st.  However, I would encourage you to stop by the sponsor page real quick and sign up for a new Adproval sponsorship, to ensure your ad continues once my Passionfruit is no more!

AND...because this is technically a photo-blog, here is a photo of my first purchase with this week's paycheck {and believe's an exciting one at our house!}

Plus, here is my favorite sunrise from this week:

Guess what: It's almost Friday!
