(Isn't he adorable?)
....but there is a point when enough is just enough.
Also, for a long time I had felt guilty about advertising for products such a Pop Tarts, Coke and various prescription medicine.
So one day I took the leap. I contacted my ad agency, the company with whom I had had an amiable and lucrative relationship for over three years, and asked to be removed from their network. It was a hard stand to take, because I knew my finances would take a hit, but it felt like the right thing to do.
Now, in case you didn't know, God is a God of miracles and one church leader even told me once, when I was experiencing severe difficulties in my life and had nowhere to turn to but God, that The Lord likes to show off a little bit sometimes. I'll never forget that, probably because it's been proven to me over and over again in my life. The very next day after quitting my ad agency, a company called adbeans contacted me.
Adbeans is based out of England and they hire bloggers to post keywords with links in their posts. For each keyword you blog (one per post) you are payed via Paypal. I don't think I'm allowed to say how much, but let's just say that my income has tripled since joining the adbeans network. It may seem a small thing, but I view this as one of The Lord's many tender mercies in my life.
Here's how it works: adbeans will send you varying keywords with links and ask you to place them within the context of your post. For instance, if you write a travel blog, you may be asked to place the keyword "Jamaica holidays" with attached link within your post. After your post is written, let adbeans know, and money will appear in your adbeans account within 48 hours. It feels so internationally metro to be an American working in Mexico getting paid in British pounds!
