Thank you so much for your kind email. I am honored to know that after you just "stumbling" upon my little blog, your clients are excited to create an advertising relationship with my collection of brain droppings. I must be doing something right if you can accidentally find my rants, musings, and bad jokes and immediately associate it with your customers advertising requirements.
Unfortunately, I decided long ago to only put links on the blog for causes and companies with whom I have a relationship. For example, I donate to Soldier's Angels, so there is a link for Soldier's Angels. I know the proprietors of Michael's Custom Holsters and Dragon Leatherworks, and I am a customer of those fine companies, so I put up links to their sites. I think you get the idea.
But I draw the line at putting up advertising for companies with whom I don't have much of a connection beyond a monthly check. This is pretty much a hobby and self-administered catharsis for me, so I don't put up advertising for companies I have only a slight connection to. And to be honest, making this a commercial enterprise would create ethical issues for me.
However, if your clients wish to send me examples of their wares so that I can test them and put up a review, I'd be more than happy to do so. Heck, I'll even ship the product back when I'm done if they want. But I'm not interested in being paid for advertising space on the blog.
If you truly like my blog and are now reading it, you'll see this message. If you think we can do business on mutually agreeable terms, then please contact me again. If not, then I wish you luck in the future, but I don't need to continue to get emails on a regular basis from you and your associated websites.
Again, good luck, and I hope to hear from you again soon.
Daddy J. Bear
