You may have noticed little advertisements on this blog. I have no control over them but I always hope that they are for small businesses that are meaningful to you. If you click on the ad I make a few cents, if you buy something I make a few more. It's not a living, it's a tiny supplement. This type of advertising is also important to the companies that place the ads but it's also a little distraction to the blog.

So how does someone get the word out, and get customers to buy without annoying people with ads? Maybe the problem isn't with small businesses advertising, maybe it's just too darn much advertising hitting our senses all day long. Maybe we need to try to tune out as much advertising as we can and just focus on the ones that inform us about places we want to shop.
Yes, this blog is an advertisement. But it's also a conversation, it's a connection between the readers who comment, the readers who email me privately, and even the people that tell me they read my blog and then we talk about an article. So this is my kind of advertising because even if you never buy a pot from me I'm richer for the connection.
What kind of advertising works for you?
