A few thoughts on Ads and Sponsored Posts

This is a little bit of a different post for me. It's not makeup or beauty related, more editorial. But don't worry I'll have my January Favourites for you on Wednesday.
I've decided to put Ads on my blog. It has taken me a long time to come to this decision but I think that as long as it doesn't interfere with my blog content, it's a good move for me. I know when I first got a blog I never thought I'd put ads on it but I've since changed my mind. I put a lot of time and energy into this blog and I love it but I'm not looking for this to become a full time job as I'm already a full time University student. However if I could earn a few extra pennies to put towards my makeup budget I think that would be great.
I sincerely hope the placement of ads on my blog doesn't affect anyone's enjoyment of my blog. There's always the option of adblocker if you have a problem with it. I know when I see ads on fellow bloggers blogs I always try to click them to give them some extra money. I would be nice but in no way necessary if you guys did that for me.
I thought I would also add my thoughts about sponsored and affiliate posts. Honestly I don't have a problem with them as long as the blogger is being totally honest with their audience. In my opinion the content of someone's blog should have a good balance of sponsored and non sponsored posts. I don't currently have any affiliation with any brands. I've never been given any products to review for my blog but I can promise now that even if that does change I'll always be 100% honest with you guys.
So there's my two scents.

What do you guys think about Ads and Sponsored posts?

  1. I also have ads on my blog. It was a new thing for me also. I thought why not to put them if I could earn some money. However it's not that simple. Just very few people click on the ad. I keep hoping that someday advertising will help me to earn more money.

    1. Oh yeah I'm sure it's not that easy. I'm not expecting to earn much money at all.I do like to click on other bloggers ads because I know it can be hard and I like to support my fellow bloggers :)
