|Example of an Affiliate Marketing Ad|
If you are a regular reader of MyLifeOutdoors you may have begun noticing some differences lately. We have a new logo banner at the top of the page, the sidebar has been moved from the left to the right side, and advertisements have begun popping up in various places.
Two or so years ago when I created MyLifeOutdoors I decided not to place any ads within the blog in an attempt to keep things classy. Since that time I have continued to refrain because I believed the cost outweighed the reward. That is to say, I wouldn’t make enough money to justify the (sometimes) annoying ads. So why have I changed my mind?
The answer is simple. Thanks to you MyLifeOutdoors has grown out of its infancy. The subscribers, pageviews, pagerank, and other aspects have grown to the point that advertising has become a promising source of extra income. As a result I have opened up avenues for Adsense and Affiliate Marketing in hopes of earning a few extra bucks to support my many outdoor adventures.
Over the next few weeks I will experimenting with ads and ad placement in an attempt to get the most out of advertising without annoying my loyal readers. Please bare with me as these kinks are worked out.
You might also notice a couple of extra page tabs near the top. I have attempted to make it easier for individuals and companies who wish to contribute to the content being published on MyLifeOutdoors. There is a new Guest Posting page featuring guidelines for writers who wish to use MyLifeOutdoors as an voice and contribute to the content published here. I have also included new information under the Contact page for companies who wish to sponsor MyLifeOutdoors in a variety of ways. There is also a new Gear Coupons page made up of continuously update gear coupons from various retailers. If you are looking for new gear please consider looking through the coupons on this page. By shopping through those links you will help support MyLifeOutdoors.
Finally, I would like to hear your opinions about the new changes. Do they annoy you? Have you wondered why it has taken me so long? How do you feel about all of this?
