Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

Exclusive Adveritising

I have been with a certain blog advertising network on one of my blogs for quite some time, almost 4 years now.  It is exclusive because aside of Project Wonderful, the terms of my contract is I don't display other advertising widgets (eg. Adsense).  Initially I was not really keen on this but they pay well.  I suppose I could accept a paid link but I don't do that or paid posts.

Signing a contract with an exclusive advertising network can be a very good thing for a blog.  It eliminates using ad networks that pay peanuts in favour of an advertising network that pays well consistently.  It doesn't mean I can't have a sponsor or take advantage of an opportunity or accept free gifts or blog about products that interest me or write about what I want to, it means that I can only display their advertising widget.  They are really good about it too in that let's say I wanted to display a certain advertising widget that did not conflict with theirs, they would consider it.  So far, I haven't asked.  In return, I earn a certain amount of money paid monthly, I get a bit of free traffic and my blog is clutter-free of a lot of advertising so it is a win/win all the way around.  I have been very happy being under contract for exclusive advertising.   Mind you, it is a legally binding contract.  So this type of advertising is not for everyone.
