So some of you who follow the Crochet Dynamite page on Facebook might have seen a post I did last night about adding advertising to my site. I've been reluctant to do it, honestly, since I didn't want to bombard you lovely Dynamos with ads that are obnoxious and irrelevant. But it has occurred to me that some of you lovely Dynamos have lovely businesses and you might like a place to promote them! Especially if that price was so good you couldn't NOT do it!!!
That post promted a very long online chat with my good friend Aunty Teeni, of MadCrochetLab.com, about where this site is going, and what my plans for the future are. Do you have your 5 year goals written out? Yeah, me neither. But I'm going to make a resolution to do it next year... Anyway, back to my point, after talking with her about my future plans, I'm pretty sure that advertising will make it's way onto my site in the future sometime, but not right now.
Why? Because I thought of something better, of course!!!
For the month of January, let's have a button swap! Grab my button from the sidebar over there and put it on your site, then come back and tell me about it. I'll go grab your button and add it to Crochet Dynamite. Sounds fun, right?! Free advertising for both of us! Besides, it's only for a month. And if we really love it we can keep the button love goin' on and on!
Anyone want in?!
If you don't have a button on your site already, it's really easy to make one yourself! I used THIS tutorial from Code it Pretty. It was simple and fast and I was able to make it work, which is 100% better than all of the other tutorials that I tried (and failed at!).
Ideas? Opinions? Anyone done this before? I'm still learning, so any/ALL feedback you can give me would be amazing.
Okay, I'm off to enjoy my cold and rainy Saturday. Hope your weather is nicer than mine is, and that a stranger tells you you're pretty today!
