I’m trying out something new. A business update post for The Conscious Doer blog. My friend Molly Remer of Talk Birth does this every Saturday…so this post is inspired by her (although, I may not have something to post each Saturday). So here we go. I’ve been asked before if this blog makes me any money. The answer is, not yet. In fact, I doubt the blog itself will ever produce much if any income because my focus is on reader experience more than income…And it always will be.
However, I have been paying attention to what other bloggers do to keep their audiences in mind while still making an income from their websites and creating a win-win-win (for their readers, businesses they support, and the bloggers themselves).
One person and business I will always support is my dear friend Jennie Santopietro. She writes the blog A Lovely Homemade Life. You guys have seen her knitwear designs before. Remember the baby bluejays that she made for the boys?
So Jennie and I decided to collaborate on a fun project. She designed a set of wool soakers that are absolutely my favorite wool soakers…I just gave her a couple of pointers on design and am writing the care instructions and taking some photos. Look for that to release on May 20th. Please tell your baby stuff knitting friends…especially those who are into cloth diapering. We’ll be doing some fun things around the time of the launch :).
In addition, I have noticed was that some bloggers do giveaways or offer discounts to their readers in exchange for telling the readers about a company they support.
So I’ve decided to try it. Below you can click a link, and visit the Robeez website. If you choose to make a purchase, I will make a small commission, and you will help support this blog financially. Thank you in advance if you choose to do so.
You can receive an extra 25% off of already discounted Robeez mini shoez. Just use the coupon code DES293. The offer expires on April 30th, 2015.
All four of our little ones have worn Robeez shoes. They are so well made and adorable. I absolutely love seeing them on their tiny little feet. The boots that Granger wears are Robeez soft sole shoes, and were worn by two of my dear friend’s daughters before they got passed along to us.
Thanks for tuning into this newest aspect of The Conscious Doer. Any thoughts on this? How do you feel about blogs having affiliate links on their site?
