First option is that you may choose to buy an ad. Money from your ad purchase allow me to advertise on other blogs. I've advertised on many, including Miss Indie, Kitty And Buck, The Dainty Squid, LoveElycia, The Nearsighted Owl, Manzanita, House Of Humble and more. I try to advertise on at least 2-5 monied blogs a month...and of course I do a lot of swapping. I do so in order to further the goals and ideas behind G&M as well as further the network and support of my sponsors. I also donate to a number of animal welfare charities! So, in other words, G&M is a not-for-profit blog. I don't keep one dime for m'self.
Speaking of swaps, you can participate in a button swap for free. Booya! Use code GRITTYGRIT for a 100% discount on the smaller size ad only. It'll be good for 3 months. Then grab one of my buttons or email me at gritsandmoxie[at]gmail[dot]com for amy specific size needed. Not a Passionfruit Ads user? No problem! Just send me an email and we'll go from there. Swaps are first-come-first-serve and subject to approval. Oh, and not to be a stickler but please, please, pleeeeeeease put my button up on your blog if you participate in the swap. That's why it's a 'swap'. Otherwise yours will be removed after a suitable length of time.
I try to support and connect the blogging community as much as possible. It's my goal. Therefore, I host sponsor feature posts whenever I can but it's not guaranteed. Unless you're a super duper ad sponsor and then you're golden. This is due in largely in part to time constraints with graduate school and full-time work. The grownup stuff. I do m'best but I'm only one gal!
Guest bloggers are always welcome at G&M! If you have a delicious vegan/vegetarian recipe to share, an environmentally friendly DIY to show off, a great read to brag about, a favorite tea to talk about or any other ideas not mentioned then please feel free to get in touch with me.
I'm also open to product reviews of locally/independently crafted items that fit the overall idea of G&M.
I no longer participate in or offer giveaways on the blog. Nor do I blog hop. No judgement on those who do but I've decided that G&M isn't really that type of platform. Just keeping it real.
Ok. Time to be serious for a moment. Ahem. Please keep in mind that I have the right to refuse your ad if I don't think we are a good 'fit'. I also have the right to exclude and/or edit any and all information from a sponsor writeup or the like.
