But honestly, how do bloggers make money? I know HOW. I just don't know how. It seems freakin' impossible. Yet, some bloggers do it. And they are damn good at it. They get companies to pay them for advertising. They write and get PAID for it on sites like http://www.nickmom.com/ or http://www.babble.com/.
So if I being am 100% honest, I would like the following to happen....and for it to happen ASAP...
1. I would like to make some extra moolah from my little Google Adsense account on my blog. But they put shitty ITT Tech ads on my blog, so that's not likely.
2. I want free crap. I want people/companies to start sending me fabulous, wonderful FREE samples of shit to try out. I would love that. If I like it, I would write about it. If not, I won't say a word. No trash talking here.
3. I want something I write to be published somewhere. Just for the hell of it. So I can say ONCE a post of mine got published by the most fabulous mom website there has ever been and moms everywhere read it and LOVED it. Then Rachel Ray contacted me to do a little mom/fun cooking segment on her show. Then Ellen's people came calling. Then....okay, maybe I'm getting a little carried away.
So I kinda sorta know HOW it works. And I have contacted/put my info in with/subscribed to other parenting websites. So maybe I will hear something, someday...if I ever write anything good enough. But for now I just write what I feel like writing.
And I know I need a little PR page so people know I will be more than happy to accept free shit to review. But I am not sure how to go about it and be legit. As it turns out, I guess I am not really into trying to figure it out either. Basically, I just want to rant about it here.
So I will continue to blog, and update my site, and post stuff on my facebook page, and read other blogs, and share what I feel like sharing...all for FREE. And I will enjoy it. I will enjoy it, dammit!
