2. When I did start sponsoring blogs, I sponsored the wrong ones. I got lost on the sidebar and didn’t get many hits from the blog I was sponsoring. I also looked at followers, not pageviews to sponsor blogs. When you sponsor blogs, look at the sidebar and see how many sponsors they have, or in the Passionfruit widget to see how many are shown at a time. What does the blogger do for you? Will you get an individual feature or will you not really be mentioned at all?
These are just things to think about when you are starting out with a blog. They are all lessons I learned and I really wish I had learned them earlier. I am very glad that I have learned them, however, because I believe it makes me be a better sponsor blog. I want to help other blogs grow and thrive, not feel like they wasted their money.
This is from the May Dietbet I am doing. I have since lost another pound but I realized I had never posted a picture of my weight on the blog before….so here you go.
This is my weight today, May 3rd, 2013. I haven’t weighed this little in years. Like college. I can’t be certain of that, but I believe that is correct.
