Sidebar & Sponsor Update!

Passionfruit Ads

Okay, guys. I’m taking a little bit of a leap here and trying something that I’ve always been curious about but a little scared to do. Have you heard of Passionfruit Ads? It’s like an online marketplace that helps organize and sell sidebar ads on blogs. And as of right now, Lovely Indeed has its very own ad shop there!

So what does it all mean? Basically, you can purchase an ad on Lovely Indeed’s sidebar right from the shop. It eliminates a lot of back and forth, and makes things like uploading ad art and payment super easy and safe. I’ve been toying with the idea because I love being able to represent other bloggers and businesses on the sidebar, but the upkeep with changing out ads monthly becomes quite a bit of work. So we’re trying this out. And if you’re thinking of sponsoring, I’d love to know if you like the idea! (By the way, did you also notice I recently revamped the sidebar? I wanted to give the ads a little more space to shine.)

The other cool thing is that you don’t have to wait until the 1st of the month to jump on the sidebar. You can purchase an ad any time (like at 1 am while you’re on your couch in your pajamas) and it will run for one month from the day you purchase. There are handy reminders when your ad is about to expire, so you can choose to stay on or finish up the month.

And one other fancy little thing — I’ve finally added Blog Business and Organization Consulting to Lovely Indeed’s services! I get so many questions about how I stay organized, how I run my editorial calendar, and the path that I took to turn blogging into my job. So now, I can distill that information to you one on one and make it apply to you and your blog or business. You can find that service in the ad shop as well!

So if you’re thinking of jumping on board, check it out! You can find the Lovely Indeed ad shop here, or right on the blog in the Collaborate page. I sincerely hope that if you choose to advertise with Lovely Indeed, this will make the process awesome for you! xoxo

  1. I just started using passionfruit ads, and so far love it! Plus, Jason, the owner guy, responds to help questions super fast. I’m only offering blog ad swaps right now, because I’m so tiny, but hopefully one day I’ll expand. I love how neat and easy it makes the process! Good luck with your sponsorships!

  2. I’m so happy that you’re offering consulting services, Chelsea. I have told you this before, but I wanted to say it publicly too…you are seriously the most organized person I know. You are on top of it, at all times! So the blog biz and organizational consulting is PERFECT.

  3. The consulting services sound amazing! Congratulations on that!
    I am hesitant about Passionfruit because I’ve noticed when I sponsor blogs through Passionfruit my ad doesn’t show up on browsers that have an ad blocker installed – which means tons of their readers could be potentially missing out on my ad! I don’t know if it’s been fixed yet, but I hesitate to sponsor until they are not recognized like typical ‘ads’ that I would *want* blocked. Have you noticed this?
