blog-happiness-project-update My blog happiness project continues, y'all. I can't believe I'm on month 9! Whoa-za. I'm definitely a happier blogger than when I started. Having these monthly goals has really helped me push myself and dream bigger. I'm learning we're capable of a lot more than we may think...

This month I'm focusing on ad networks. I'd love to join a network that would allow me to bring you amazing folks awesome content on the regular. Ad networks are like the perfect blogger sidekick, there to help you kick ASS.

At Alt Summit in SLC, they touched on ad networks briefly in one of the sessions. Here's what they had to say about finding a network:

+ They may approach you (okay, starting the visualizing NOW) + Look for them at conferences (oh hello, Alt for Everyone) + Look for network badges on sites you read (let the research begin)

Some major ad networks include Lijit, Glam Media, BlogHer, Sway Group, and Federated Media.

I used to think ad networks were only for blogs with a gazillion readers, but I'm finding that there are quite a few options for small to medium blogs. I recently came across a rad new network for bloggers & businesses called Yoked. They'll be teaching a class at Alt for Everyone btdubs... who else is going?? I can't wait to hear what they have to say about crafting the perfect pitch...

Where my bloggers at? I'm curious, do you like the idea of working with an ad network? Would you join one?

Where my bloggers AND non-bloggers at? As a reader, do sidebar ads or sponsored posts bother you? I'd love to hear what you think...


It’s Thursday and that means a whole gang of rad bloggers are talking about happiness! Join the movement below, on facebook, and on twitter with #BeHappylinkup!
