I just wanted to have a little word with you about some stuff going down at the Holsby Bar and Grill.
You see, I’d always given myself an internal deadline for this blog business before I had to quit it and go and get a ‘real job’. Blogging and social media, writing books and contributing to sites is a full a time job and whilst looking after the stinkers it keeps me very busy. Until now I’ve been doing it for free or the occasional sale of my old ebooks,
I decided recently that in order to continue working this hard, I needed to make some spondoolies. I really love money. And I’d really love to make money doing this.
Soooooooooo, I’ve recently been approached to do some sponsored posts.
I want to let you know that I’m not selling out, and I’m not going flog you shit. I’m going to continue to write interesting, thoughtful, funny and personal posts, and sometimes there will be a link included by a kind benefactor who is helping me stay afloat. I will always disclose when I have been paid to do a post.
I will not compromise my voice or my blog, but even with that in mind, as I’ve not done this before I will need to feel my way a bit.
My book is due to go to the printers this week (cue:heralding angels), there is more Holsby TV sitting in my edit suite waiting for me to cut it, I have deadlines up the wazoo for contributions and I’m so thrilled about everything my little blog has become.
It’s exciting for me, and you guys are such an amazing part of my journey that I want you to be in the loop about every step.
Stay tuned, and I won’t let you down,
PS Feel free to tell me how you feel about sponsored posts as your feedback is invaluable.
