something new! getcha an ad space!

Hey folks! So as you know, I am jobless, and with the infinite amount of spare time, I have become semi-obsessed with building my blog and making it better than ever. [Tangent: I gots to keep it spicy for you folks.] At the risk of sounding pretentious, I have been hesitant to sell out and turn this into some kind of gimmicky advertising machine, but sometimes you see an opportunity for growth and you can either grab it by the balls or watch it pass you by.  [Tangent: For some inexplicable reason, my readership has pretty much doubled in the last 3 months. I wish I could say that my writing has just become exponentially better...but it hasn't. It's the same.]

I have seen how many other blogs I read have benefited from mutual ad space sharing and ad sales or how many have gotten cool opportunities to review products and attend events. Frankly, I want in on that action.

Starting this month, I am opening up my blog to advertisers. [Tangent: ...and I don't mean Coca-Cola and Nike....who are we kidding? This is a blog.] After several hours of googling and emailing and trial and error, I added the SPONSOR ME button above, which will now be a permanent fixture on my site.

As you will see below, because I am starting out and still working out the kinks- my monthly rates are super reasonable. Also, I am game for a ad swap, just email me and we can tit for tat it. [Tangent: Eww...I really hate that phrase.]


Wanna give your blog/website/small business/etsy a little extra exposure?

...then advertise with that girl in the wheelchair!

Daily, my little blog gets 400-500 hits, which would be 400-500 people that may not know about your business otherwise. Because I am just starting out, my rates are bargain basement and a great way to get your name out their for the starting price of a fast food combo meal! It also will afford me the opportunity to pay for advertising on other sites. It all goes full circle.


Here are some insights about my site:

On Facebook, that girl in the wheelchair currently boasts 245 "likes" with a weekly total reach of about 300.

Through Google friend connect, my blog has 78 regular followers and is linked through several other popular Nashville blogs.

This site also have 21 followers on Bloglovin,  making it the number #384 blog in the entertainment category.

My primary readers are generally in the 25-34 range, but my readers are really a diverse mixed bag demographically.
 This site is also marked for growth. Each month the popularity grows leaps and bounds, and I fully expect this trend to continue.


[Product Integration/Personal Product Review] I am constantly looking for cool things to share with my readersIf you have an amazing service or product (especially in the Nashville area), please feel free to share it with me via email [kimmie.jones@gmail.com]. Although, I reserve the right to choose or not choose your product, you never know! It could be exactly something that my readership needs to know about.

  4. Hey Kimmie, I would be one of the new followers in the past 3 months and I love you! Not sure why, well yes I do. You are hilarious! I have just started a blog and etsy shop for my art. And just learning all the ins and out. I just got my FIRST follower today. Whoo hoo right!?! I don't know much about all the ad stuff on blogs, but if you would be willing to tell me more about it, I would love to take up even a little space on "that girl in the wheelchair" blog.
