Advertising on your blog

Hi everyone - I currently participate in an ad network, but as my traffic and subscriber count grows I'd like to consider switching from the network to individual ads. I'm not sure how to go about this? I've been contacted a few times about irrelevant ads, but wondering if there is a resource somewhere on how to find companies that advertise on blogs, or any other resource on the subject. Anything would help - thanks!LZ @ My Messy ParadiseSee More

I want to start a group magazine style blog - any advice?

Hi all - I'm thinking about starting a new blog - more of a group site (possibly) but definitely more geared towards providing info - crafts, recipes, advice, etc., as opposed to sharing my daily life and stories. Has anyone done this? Any tips on what worked, or didn't?See More

Who wants to read the good stuff?

I would not be so quick to frequent a blog that only talked about how perfect the kids were, how well mom cooked from scratch, how clean and beautiful the house is, how unfrazzled she is at the end of the day…Sure, I like those stories, but if I have a bad day, or am making dinner from a box or cleaning the crayon from my entire floor, or changing the 3rd blowout of the day, or ready to pull my hair out for a variety of reasons, those posts just will NOT make me feel better.

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

Twitter Moms yes, if you go to that link I sent you before it will show you my link. I'm not on Blogher though. I didn't go. I bet it was good!

Very cool! I'm really trying to make an effort to link up with bloggers who share all the same social sites as I do. It takes a little more time but it is so worth it! I'm glad we could connect here as well as our blogs.
