Deals and Steals

Recently I came across a really neat blog…..

I actually found this blog because of one of my awesome readers!

Mrs. Means posted this comment on my “Would you pass this up?” post.

You need to go over and link this up on Vintage Revivals blog.  You’ll enjoy Mandi’s blog.  She’s having “Lamp Week” all this week and I believe her linky party for lamp themed posts opened up today.  What a great find! 
She was right.
I loved Mandi’s blog!
More importantly. 
I loved Mandi’s story.
It reminds me of why I started blogging.
I don’t want to ever lose sight of that.
I love how my blog is growing and it is a blessing beyond words that it may even be a way for me to eventually bring in income….which is really weird! I never thought my prayers for extra income may be answered through my blog…..I’m not even sure if it will…..but it is bringing neat opportunities.

I haven’t wanted to just jump at any opportunity and it was recently when reading a post on Mandi’s blog that I decided how to handle the “income opportunity” right now.

She shared a neat site called

Set Your Price. Choose your Advertisers. Sign up for SocialSpark!

What she liked about this site was …..once accepted……If she didn’t like what her sponsors wanted her to post about…if she didn’t think it would benefit her readers….she could refuse.

It was that easy.

If she did believe in it….she could check it out…….then blog about it.

And get paid.

Not much….but hey.…..much is more than zero…..

Know what I’m saying?

And, I wondered……

Do you even think I would get accepted by some of these places that sponsored her?

I didn’t even want to tell you guys about it…..because I was a little embarrassed.

What if they said no….what if you guys thought I was needy……

What if……..

Guess what?

They accepted me and I am needy.

So hey….


Guess what again?

They have given me quite a few offers to write about different products.

But I am being picky and “ignored” most of them.

I have only accepted one from the five I have been given so far.

And I did, because I knew you all would like it.

I have two more to look over but not sure if I will like them or not.

You guys will be the first to know.

But here is the deal.

You guys know I am crappy at grammar.

That I’m plain ‘ole me and not fancy when I post.

And if they accepted me………

Are they desperate or something? 

But mainly…..

Many of you guys blog….and are much better at it than me……..


I think you need to check them out.

It is called Social Spark….you can tell them I sent you.

They will be like….

“HUH? Who sent you ?? What???” I’m a real big whig there.

They will probably pretend like I’m just a small peon and they don’t know me.

Yeah…that’s what they are doing….pretending.

Ok…they won’t know my name….


But it would help me if you do decide to become a part of their team to use my referral link…..

Set Your Price. Choose your Advertisers. Sign up for SocialSpark!

I hope they send us some really good stuff to talk about….

It will be clear when I post for them, that it is an “ad”……it will say it at the beginning and the end of the post….I think…….

I write the ad, after I check out the product and submit it to them…..then they post it.

Sorta’ creepy that they can submit to my blog.

But just know this....

IF I post something for them….

It is because I think you will want to know about it.


If you are a blogger yourself……..

Check them out.


Lastly but most importantly…….

Check out Mandi’s blog and story.

You won’t want to miss it.

    Good for you! Your posts always put a smile if my face and I can’t see how advertising would change that! Hope your a/c is sorted out!
