A few weeks ago I made the decision to sale some spaces on my sidebar.
It was a tough decision for me because a) I’m a giver, not a taker and I really, really, really like giving away sidebar space to hardworking mama bloggers & etsy-ers (don’t worry, I still give them away to celebrate awesomeness), 2) I couldn’t figure out how to price them (the whole I’m-not-worth-$40-a-year-let-alone-a-month argument waged in my head), and finally, I had an intense fear of failure (what-if-no-one-buys-one-and-then-I-look-like-a-big-stupid-face-loser-head-who-can’t-sell-a-$15-ad).
Thankfully, you don’t seem to like me just for my freebies, I priced them reasonably enough that people think they’re a good bargain (especially because if you buy one month you get a free month for, um, free AND I Tweet you, Facebook you, Pin you, and yodel about you from the nearest mountaintop at least once a month), and I’m not a stupid face loser head because at least a few people bought them.
Best part? The people who bought ads from me are all kinds of awesome. They’re cute and friendly and they can sing sweeter than Phillip Phillips. Okay, that last part is a total lie, but they can do plenty of nearly-but-not-quite equally amazing things…

Because I love you for buying me shoes loving me.
