Housekeeping in BGIM land

For those of you who arrive here at Blackgirlinmaine the old fashioned way by actually coming onto the web page, you may have noticed it’s looking a little different here in BGIM land.
.
After much hemming and hawing, ads have arrived but have no fear, no one owns BGIM and unlike my brief and short lived stint with a major blog publishing network that shall go unnamed, ads that appear on BGIM are here because I personally think they are cool as hell.
.
I admit taking ads is a scary thing but after 3 years of blogging, while it’s a fun hobby the truth is it needs to at least pay for itself. In the past I have tried online begging but frankly no one digs on it including me, I feel sleazy and you well… you feel pressured. That said, I am keeping the tip jar up but considering it’s only netted a handful of donations, I suspect tip jars also don’t speak to readers. I mean no I don’t need the cash to eat but it would be helpful in making it to a few blogging conferences in 2012 as well as pay for the upkeep of this fine space. Or maybe help recreate the emergency fund that was blown to smithereens this summer.

You will notice that I have become a blogger with Eden’s Fantasys, hey, I like sex and toys are fun! That said this blog is attached to my very real name and as someone who heads a small faith based agency I do need to be cautious about what I write but from time to time I may review items from them, nothing too raunchy but nice rated R stuff.
.
I also have a great ad from June the Homemaker, she is a great gal that does videos so you can learn all that stuff your Mama never taught you…please check her out! Lastly I am running an ad from Red Poppy Design, her designs are not only great but affordable, if you need a website please look her up. I have a few other ads that will be rolling out in the near future, that will be pretty awesome.

If you are a regular reader and like what you read here, can I ask that you show some love to my advertisers? I’d appreciate it and I am sure the folks advertising would appreciate it as well.
