Housekeeping: #BookBlasts, Advertising, Blogger Awards & TeamAbnegaton

Several “Housekeeping” Items…

Advertising
I’ve been selling advertising through BlogAds for 2 months now.  I was skeptical at first but must admit it has been a great thing for this blog.  Thanks to Damaris from GoodChoiceReading for referring me to them!  I’m not a huge fan of advertising but am happy with the results of Blogads.  I have control over which ads get approved, pricing, and where the ads are placed on my blog.

If you are considering advertising on your blog I suggest taking a look at what they offer.  I’ve had google ads on my site for quite a while but Blogads has been a much better deal.  There are minimum requirements for the number of page views your blog must receive to be able to join but if you have an established blog that is receiving a fair amount of page views each month I recommend looking into them.

If you are considering advertising on this site I have a current coupon code good for the month of April to save you 25% off advertising: Use the code April25.

BookBlasts
I’m starting something I’m calling a BookBlast.  I love helping authors promote their books.  I’ve considered setting up book tours but there are already lots of sites out there doing book tours. After the recent insane response to the Amazon gift card giveaway I set up for Team Abnegation I decided to try something new.  Details are still being worked out but so far it looks promising for authors and bloggers alike.  I’ve started a separate blog to set up and run these events.  If you are interested in joining these promotions fill out the form mentioned below.

As always only “family friendly” books & blogs will be allowed to participate.

TeamAbnegation
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported TeamAbnegation by clicking these links: http://bit.ly/abnegationfaction & http://bit.ly/choose_abnegation

I know it is not everyone’s thing but since promoting great books is something I love to do it has been so fun for me to brainstorm and work with the fabulous Team I was assigned to.

The click through challenge continues until the end of this month and then it will be back to blogging as usual.

Until then be prepared for few more TeamAbnegation/DivergentNation posts as I have what I hope will be fun things planned for the next 2 weeks.  And if you have not yet read Divergent, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?  Go get a copy and read it!
