After my expensive lesson at the bank with my ReviewMe cheque, I was looking at my ads and wondering if some of them were worth the while.

I had put up the Performancing house ad on my blogs for some time now and it hasn’t been performing at all. Probably its too competitive with more bloggers than advertisers. My blogs usually end on Page 5 or lower and there are so many blogs for an advertiser to choose from.

I decided to move my Performancing Partners badge way down right to the bottom of my sidebar for a start. My next step would be to remove it completely because all the ads were making my blog ugly and I needed to free up the space for something else with better value.

After I did that, I got my first order from an advertiser on my Mothering Times blog. Woohoo! (If you are busybody you can go view the ad on that blog. Its right below my PayPerPost Affliate button. I moved it back up to the top again from the bottom of the sidebar where it was relingushing to give it a bit more prominence. Afterall the advertiser picked me, so I must do my part. Hehe.)

Cheap thrill but still I’m thrilled nevertheless. Unlike an adsense ad, this feels different in the sense that an advertiser actually went through the listings and picked my blog to advertise on. Wow! Feels good but then a little bit of pressure too. Lol. The advertiser booked my space for a month so I hope that they get something out of it at least, like some clicks and some follow through. Otherwise kesiannya for picking my blog.

This is just part of my ongoing story for my foray into the world of blog advertising. It has certainly made blogging a lot more interesting to me.

Have you started advertising on your blog? No? What are you waiting for? For begginers, I would recommend that you try out Google Adsense first. Its the easiest to implement. Just paste a few codes on your blog and you’re done. Then you can sit back and wait for the pennies to start rolling in.
