Like What I’m Blogging? Thank Me By ‘Buying Me A Cup Of Tea’

in Information

You may have noticed that I have removed the ads from the front page sidebar of my blog (except the directory website badges which I have to keep there). I have however moved them to a page called Recommended Products. I’ve added the bookstore and health products because there are so many good books about health out there that I think you may love! It is there mostly to let you know which books I LOVE and I feel you may enjoy and benefit from them too! I’ve also kept them there because there are so many healthy food products I feel you may gain many healthy benefits from. (Also if there are certain products you want to try (from my Affiliates) let me know and I’ll see if I can get a giveaway/competition happening!).

Why have I have moved the Ads from my front page?

I found they were too distracting on my front page and directed people away from my blog posts (and cluttered .

Why have ads in the first place?

I love blogging! So much so that about a month ago I moved my blog from to and got my own hosting account! That was very exciting because I now have the option of changing my blog and template to make it look however I like and make it easier to access! The downfall of doing that is hosting does cost a pretty penny. So I put up ads. But ads aren’t what I’m all about. So I moved them away from the front page. Read more about me.

I try to click the ads on blogs once in awhile just to help my favorite bloggers. It's nice to get paid!  So there is an ad on the top of your page from Buitoni, do you get paid if I click that? I just did so I hope so!

You’re lovely Debbi! Yep that ad is from FoodBuzz- it’s an affiliate link. Thanks for clicking it Debbi :)

Hey Michelle,

I think your doing a great job with the blog…. The theme is really clean and uncluttered.

You have some great recipes and that’s what will keep people coming back… and having some ads here and there sprinkled throughout the site is completely acceptable….

Keep it up!

Hi Kurt.

Thanks so much for the compliments. I want to keep posting great healthy recipes that people enjoy. Let me know if you have any requests.

Thanks for the support.
