A Little Help Needed
Okay before I vent.... Let me just say that I have no problem with people that are this way. It is just not for me. A long time ago in a land a few miles away from where I reside now. There lived a princess named Jenn (me). And I used to love doing photography. I shot engagements, weddings, new babies, pregnancies and family's in abundance. I loved it. It was only when I decided to start making money doing it that it became a vile enemy for me. And I had to quit. It was no longer my passion. It made me sick to think I was making money using my talent. Something I love to make money... blah! That didn't work for me. Well I look around at the other hair bloggers who have ad's on the side of there blog and I hear about the money they are making. It can be very impressive to say the least. I, however, fear that if I start allowing ad's on my page that it will turn my hobby into a money maker rather then a hobby. And I know that is how a lot of them get the traffic they have as well. And you know what--- that doesn't sell me either. I think traffic is cool. I love when my counter used to be over 1000 every day. It hasn't hit that in a while. Its still high and that is flattering in itself. But I would hate to think I was doing any part of this for the spot light. You know what I mean? So I find myself conflicted and I would like your advise. As readers of Girly Do's--- I would like to sell my curlers and start making money for my families end of the year Christmas time service project. If I started making extra money now we could stretch it a lot further then just the blankets we did last year for the foster kids. I (personally) would like to do a meal at the Holmes Family Shelter. And I would also like to do the snacks for kids charity that sends kids that rely on school for there meals a snack pack for over the holiday vacation so that they don't go hungry during that time. So..."IF" I decide to sell my curlers (and that is a big IF) would that turn you away from the ad free zone that Girly Do's is? AND.. how do you feel about the advertisements on blog pages?
