Last week brought a disappointing event for my blog. But it started out so exciting! I got an email from a French ad agency asking my prices for banner ads on my blog.
I was skeptical….
Who was the brand? I asked.
They responded. And I went WOAH! That brand is very well-known! They’re sold in department stores. Pretty cool.
So I sent them my price list, still not sure if this was legit.
They responded saying they wanted to buy my top-priced ad space. I logged into their webmaster tools and get everything set up for them to review. I was so excited – because if you don’t know – this blog is not huge!
I write this blog because it helps me to grow in Christ, and that’s what it’s really all about. If it also helps you grow in Christ, then I am ultra thrilled about that.
But I do spend a lot of time blogging, and it would be a blessing to my family if any income were generated from it (of course).
Then I got an email that the advertiser rejected my site. 🙁
I was a little heart-broken! Disappointed, dejected… you know what this feels like.
Here’s what’s so interesting: Before I got that email, I had no disappointment in my blog. LOL. It just goes to show you how quickly worldly desires will take over.
Some of you are my very loyal readers and friends, and I thank you so much for always supporting me and encouraging my efforts here. Some of you are new, and I say Welcome! I’m glad you’re here!
