A BIG Step & Giveaway

Ladies and gentlemen (and by gentlemen, I mean James. Hi honey!), I finally did it. I decided to add sponsored ads on Wife Mommy Me. Now, before you think "Oh here we go, another sell out", let's take a minute and look at the big picture.

Like most bloggers, I spend A TON of time working on Wife Mommy Me and networking within the blogging community. One of those connections has led me to waiting to attend a blogger conference next year in Indianapolis - perfect timing since we are moving north, right? The Influence Conference offers a way for friends to meet for the first time in real life, in a safe environment. It provides tools and resources for writers to take their brand and ideas to the next level. It teaches communicators how to make their voice heard, how to make their voice count. It creates opportunities for people to make a difference and give back to the community. A single ticket to the conference is $300. As a single income family, I can't bring myself to spend that type of money on a blogging conference. 

Having said that, I thought what better way to pay for the conference than to have my readers sponsor Wife Mommy Me. Not only will you be growing your connections within the blogging community with my help but I would attend the event and bring back to you, my readers and fellow bloggers, information and helpful tips to take your blog to the next level.

But of course, there are so many people out there you could give your money to and who could promote your blog. Why me? Well because if there is anyone who knows what it takes to grow your blog, it's me. I've poured my heart and soul into Wife Mommy Me and I would love to see it grow, with your help of course. 

I've added sponsor options to my Let's Connect page. Check them out and maybe sign up to have me work for you. For as little as 4 bucks we can make blogging magic! No pressure at all because starting today, I have a giveaway that gives one lucky winner 4 months FREE sponsorship to Wife Mommy Me. I need feedback from those I've sponsored and what better way to earn it than with giving you something for FREE for your honest review on how I treated you as a sponsor.

It's a big step for this little blog of mine. I will still be me though, don't you worry. Be sure to enter for your chance to win. I can't wait to work with each of you!

  12. Oh my gosh, you are truly a gift from God! I've been thinking about doing the same thing since I want to attend the conference but it's just not money we can spend as a one income family also. Love it!!!
