If you feel like there have been a few changes around Burnett’s Boards lately, you’d be right (and there are more to come!).
One big one starting today is that I’m now offering sidebar advertising.
Shock and horror!
Yes, remember that personal post I wrote a while ago where I said:
“My goal: to bring the biggest and brightest inspiration boards to you. How do I do that? By keeping advertisements off the sidebars.” Well, I have decided to have some space on my homepage for the sponsors that I love. Post pages (where the inspiration boards show up) will remain full-sized & sidebar free, and I think that keeps this site true to itself: “to bring the biggest and brightest inspiration boards to you.”
Since the inception of this blog I have formed relationships with my sponsors. A lot of these people (yes, people; there are very wonderful and inspiring women behind each of these lovely businesses) have been with me since the very beginning and Burnett’s Boards wouldn’t be where it is today without their support. Offering up prime real estate on this blog is my way to say thank you and show my appreciation to them.
Another reason I’ve decided to offer to advertising on Burnett’s Boards to give this blog more ‘legitimacy.’ I still fear that people pop over here, don’t see sidebar advertisements and assume that it’s ‘not a real blog.’ With Burnett’s Boards now ranking among the top 60 English language wedding blogs in the world (according to Alexa.com) the time is right to add this feature.
I’m sure you recognize some of the lovely businesses that I’ve been working with over the past eight months now and I hope that you choose to support them the way they have helped to support me.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on these changes so please feel free to leave a note!
